Comparing two date strings problem

Recommended Posts

I am comparing two string dates in the form of: "20140926". I have one cookie file that has this date but in my comparison with  todays date it doesn't match. I thought I was comparing two strings that contain numbers. WHy doesn't this work?

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>


Example()

Func Example()

    $CurrentTime = @YEAR & @MON & @MDAY & @Hour & @Min & @SEC
    $TodaysDate = @YEAR & @MON & @MDAY
    $TodaysTime = @Hour & @Min & @SEC
    Local $cLength = StringLen($TodaysDate)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "DateTime " & $CurrentTime & " TodaysDate: " & $TodaysDate & " Clength: " & $Clength)

$Fpath = "C:\Users\dude\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\"
; List all the files and folders in the desktop directory using the default parameters.
    Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray($Fpath, "*.txt", 1, True)
    If @error = 1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Path was invalid.")
        Exit
    EndIf
    If @error = 4 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were found.")
        Exit
    EndIf
    ; Display the results returned by _FileListToArray.
    _ArrayDisplay($aFileList, "$aFileList")



For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileList) - 1
    $x = FileGetTime($aFileList[$i], $FT_MODIFIED, 1)
    Local $iLength = StringLen($x)
    If $iLength > 8 Then
        Local $CookieDate = StringLeft($x, 8)
        Local $Length = StringLen($CookieDate)
        ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Value of $x is: " & $x)
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Value of CookieDate is: " & $CookieDate & " Length: " & $Length & " TodaysDate: " & $TodaysDate & " Clength: " & $Clength)
        If $TodaysDate = $x Then
            MsgBox("", "", "Found match", $x)
        EndIf
    EndIf
Next
