_GetDateInString() - find date/time in a string using a date format notation (DD Mon YYYY hh:mm)

Recommended Posts

I am currently working on a project in which I have to find timestamps in multiple formated patterns.

The idea is to search time stamps in log files.

If successful _GetDateInString() will returns a timestamp in YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss

Example:

_GetDateInString("...Process Last Run 17 JUN at 05:15...", "DD Mon at hh:mm")

will return 2014/06/17 05:15:00

Formats tested:
- DDMonYY hh:mm:ss  (matches dates like 30May14 03:59:59)
- DD Mon YYYY hh:mm   - Mon, DD YYYY hh:mm:ss   - Mon, D YYYY hh:mm:ss   - DD Mon at hh:mm
- DMonYY hh:mm:ss     - DMon hh:mm:ss           - DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm       - DD-MM-YYYY  hh:mm
- DDMMYYYY hh:mm      - DD/MM hh:mm             - MM.DD.YYYY  hh:mm      - YYYYDDMM  hh:mm
- YYYYMMDD - hh:mm    - DD.MM  hh:mm            - D/M/YYYY hh:mm         - D.M.YYYY hh:mm
- M.D.YY h:mm:ss      - M.D.YY hh:mm            - M.D.YY  hh:mm          - M.D.YYYY h:mm:ss
- M.D.YYYY  h:mm:ss   - M.D at  h:mm:ss        

and many other formats...

      Hi,
      I wanted to use _GetLogonTime() by guinness (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/19370-autoit-wrappers/?do=findComment&comment=942069).
      #include <Date.au3> #include <Array.au3> ConsoleWrite(_GetLogonTime() & @LF) Func _GetLogonTime($sUserName = @UserName, $sComputerName = @ComputerName) ; Idea by trancexx: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/113611-if-isadmin-not-detected-as-admin/ Local $aRet = DllCall("netapi32.dll", "long", "NetUserGetInfo", "wstr", $sComputerName, "wstr", $sUserName, "dword", 11, "ptr*", 0) _ArrayDisplay($aRet) If @error Or $aRet[0] Then Return SetError(1, 0, False) Local $sHours = DllStructGetData(DllStructCreate("ptr;ptr;ptr;ptr;dword;dword;dword;ptr;ptr;dword;dword;dword;dword;ptr;dword;ptr;dword;dword;byte;dword", $aRet[4]), 18) DllCall("netapi32.dll", "long", "NetApiBufferFree", "ptr", $aRet[4]) Return _DateAdd("h", "-" & $sHours, _NowCalc()) EndFunc ;==>_GetLogonTime It always returns false.
      I displayed $aRet:
      [0]|2221
      [1]|mycomputer
      [2]|myuser
      [3]|11
      [4]|0x0000000000000000
      $aRet[4] shouldn't be 0x0000000000000000 right? Any help?
      Regards, Conrad

      Here is an other UDF for string handling :
      Date handling
      _StringDateConvert:  convert a date from one format ("YMD", "MDY" or "DMY") to another.
      _StringIsDate:  checks if a date with a given format is valid
      String management
      _StringCount: count of occurrences that appear in a string
      _StringFormatBytesSize: formatting a dimension expressed in bytes (bytes) in MB, TB, ...)
      _StringIsEndingWith: check if a string end with some characters
      _StringIsStartingWith: check if a string start with some characters
      _StringJoinArray:  concatenate elements of an array to rebuild a string
      _StringPadLeft: filling a string with characters on the left
      _StringPadRight: fill a string with characters on the right
      _StringRemoveFrenchAccent: remove french accent
      _StringRemoveChars: deleting characters from a string
      _StringStrip: eliminate characters at the begin and/or at the  end of a string
      _StringTitleCaseFrench: capitalize the first letter of each word with elimination of french accents
      _StringWSClean: simple replacement of "White Spaces",  remove beginning and trailing spaces and multiple spaces removal
      Any comments, suggestions for improvement or constructive criticism are welcome.
      Below you will find the UDF and a demo program.

      Hey All,
      I'm trying to set the date using a variable.
      Basically, I set the date into the input box, then I change the input box, say, I change the year.
      Then I set what I typed into the input box into the Date Picker.

      This is a demo code.
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> ;Start GUI includes #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiDateTimePicker.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) $Date1 = GUICtrlCreateDate("2019/02/02 23:16:26", 80, 64, 186, 21, $DTS_SHORTDATEFORMAT) $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 80, 152, 185, 21) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Set data", 176, 96, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read from input", 176, 200, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Button1 $Read = GUICtrlRead($Date1) GUICtrlSetData($Input1, $Read) MsgBox(-1, "", $Read) Case $Button2 $Read = GUICtrlRead($Input1) $New_date = StringReplace($Read, "/", "") $DAY = StringLeft($New_date, 2) $MON = StringMid($New_date, 4, 3) $YEAR = StringRight($New_date, 4) MsgBox(-1, "", $DAY & $MON & $YEAR) ;_GUICtrlDTP_SetFormat($hWndDate, "yyyy/MM/dd") $DateFormate = ($DAY & " " & $MON & " " & $YEAR) $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032 ; $DTM_SETFORMATW GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1, $DateFormate, 0, "MM/dd/yyyy") EndSwitch WEnd
