Date and time GUI bug?

Recommended Posts

bobsyuruncle

Hey guys... not a vital issue or anything, but I've setup the format of date and time in a user input field (code included below), but the output is off on the second field and I can't figure where it's getting it from.... the code displayed is the only place in the program that modifies these fields:

$StartDate = GUICtrlCreateDate(@Year&"/"&@MON&"/"&@MDAY&" "&@HOUR&":00", 8, 112, 138, 21)
    ; to select a specific default format
    $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032 ; $DTM_SETFORMATW
    $style = "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm"
    GUICtrlSendMsg($StartDate, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $style)
$EndDate = GUICtrlCreateDate(@Year&"/"&@MON&"/"&@MDAY+1&" "&@HOUR&":00", 8, 152, 138, 21)
    $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032 ; $DTM_SETFORMATW
    $style = "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm"
    GUICtrlSendMsg($EndDate, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $style)

The outputs are:
Startdate: 2014/04/04 17:00
(good so far)
EndDate: 2014/04/05 07:25
(Where did 07:25 come from? FYI 25 is the current Minute time of the test, but the 07Hour is not. Current hour is 17:00)
Both fields have almost exactly the same code and syntax with endDate being incrimented by 1.

Nowhere else in my script am I making any modifications to either field, just read.

Thanks for your help

bobsyuruncle,

No idea what is happening, but I would not recommend setting the end date the way you are doing it - what happens on the last day of the month? ;)

Much better to use the correct function to increment the date - which also removes the problem you are seeing when I run the following:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

$sStyle = "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$sDate = @YEAR & "/" & @MON & "/" & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & ":00"
$StartDate = GUICtrlCreateDate($sDate, 10, 110, 140, 20)
GUICtrlSendMsg($StartDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle)

$sDate = _DateAdd("D", 1, $sDate) ; Increment by 1 day <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
$EndDate = GUICtrlCreateDate($sDate, 10, 150, 140, 20)
GUICtrlSendMsg($EndDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
Does it work for you too? :)

Thank you.

This worked and was cleaner than what I was trying.

Assume that @MDAY+1 messes up the format as @MON is a 2 character string and the outcome of @MDAY+1 is in this case a 1 digit number converted back to a 1 character string.

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
      #Region options, includes Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #EndRegion options, includes Global Const $nCols = 2, $nRows = 6, $nSpacer = 10, $nBtnWidth = 150, $nBtnHeight = 30 Global $xName = 0, $xID = 0 Global $nGUIWidth = ($nCols * $nBtnWidth) + (($nCols + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $nGUIHeight = ($nRows * $nBtnHeight) + (($nRows + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $hMainGUI = GUICreate("Calculated GUI", $nGUIWidth, $nGUIHeight, -1, -1) For $xRows = 1 to $nRows ;in this arrangement, tabbing is left to right, then next row For $xCols = 1 to $nCols ;reverse the order of this line with the prior line for top to bottom tabbing, then next col $xName += 1 $xID += 1 Global $Dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $xName, _ ($nBtnWidth * ($xCols - 1)) + (($xCols - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ ($nBtnHeight* ($xRows - 1)) + (($xRows - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ $nBtnWidth, _ $nBtnHeight) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($xID+2, "Handler") Next Next GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseApp") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func CloseApp() Exit EndFunc Func Handler() MsgBox(0,0,"Button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 2) EndFunc
