Date and time GUI bug?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

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.

      Hello,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)
