GuiCtrlCreateDate & GUICtrlSetData not working as expected

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I've run into an issue in one of my scripts using the GUICtrlCreateDate function with the $DTS_TIMEFORMAT flag.

Basically, after the creation of the Date tool, I seem to be unable to set the data in the box; And after reading the function reference for GuiCtrlSetData, This does seem to be something that's supported... So i'm a little lost as to where exactly i'm going wrong.

I've created a quick test script, and still can't get the two functions to work harmoniously:

local $GUI = GuiCreate("",100,40)
local $testDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("",15,10,70,20,9,-1)
local $test = GUIctrlSetData(-1,"09:00:00")
ConsoleWrite($test & @CR)
GUIsetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
   switch GUIgetMsg()
      Case -3
        Exit
   EndSwitch
WEnd 

Theoretically, the date input should show 09:00:00, But the GUIctrlSetData seems to be failing (returning 0).

I've checked the format of the Date input by using GUIctrlRead, and have adhered to that format in the test above, but it still seems to be failing.

Any Ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

Many Thanks

Try this:

local $GUI = GuiCreate("",100,40)
local $testDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("",15,10,70,20,9,-1)
local $test = GUIctrlSetData($testDate,"2015/01/14 09:00:00 AM")
ConsoleWrite($test & @CR)
GUIsetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
   switch GUIgetMsg()
      Case -3
        Exit
   EndSwitch
WEnd

:)

EDIT: It just wasn't in the proper date format of YYYY/MM/DD HH:mm:ss.

Hi Mikah, Thanks for the response!

That works perfectly... I didn't realise that the date had to be specified even though it's not displayed.

I tip my hat to you sir! :D

      After Several Minutes searching the forums for a simple solution to calculating for the Unix Time, as required for another project I am working on, I was astonished to not find one clean and universal solution. After looking over the helpfile, I noticed one simple solution given in the example with _DateDiff(). However it did not account for my current timezone or daylight savings time.
      Without further ado... This is my example of Calculating for a current Unix Time stamp or  seconds since Jan, 1st, 1970 00:00:00 GMT.
      This function will account for your timezone as well as for daylight savings time.
      Update: v0.3
      -Added Function to revert a Unix Time stamp into Date form.
      -Added parameter to original _GetUnixTime() allowing for a custom date since Jan 1st 1970 to be passed and converted to Unix Time.
      #include <Date.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Constants.au3> Local $iUnixTime1 = _GetUnixTime() MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Unix Timestamp", "Seconds Since Jan, 1st, 1970 00:00:00 GMT" & @CRLF & $iUnixTime1) Local $sUnixDate1 = _GetDate_fromUnixTime($iUnixTime1) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Unix Timestamp", "Get Date from Unix Timestamp in Local Time" & @CRLF & $sUnixDate1) $sUnixDate1 = _GetDate_fromUnixTime($iUnixTime1, False) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Unix Timestamp", "Get Date from Unix Timestamp with $iReturnLocal = False which returns UTC Time" & @CRLF & $sUnixDate1) Local $iUnixTime2 = _GetUnixTime('2013/01/01 00:00:00') MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Unix Timestamp", "Seconds since 2013/01/01 00:00:00" & @CRLF & $iUnixTime2) ; Get timestamp for input datetime (or current datetime). Func _GetUnixTime($sDate = 0);Date Format: 2013/01/01 00:00:00 ~ Year/Mo/Da Hr:Mi:Se Local $aSysTimeInfo = _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation() Local $utcTime = "" If Not $sDate Then $sDate = _NowCalc() If Int(StringLeft($sDate, 4)) < 1970 Then Return "" If $aSysTimeInfo[0] = 2 Then ; if daylight saving time is active $utcTime = _DateAdd('n', $aSysTimeInfo[1] + $aSysTimeInfo[7], $sDate) ; account for time zone and daylight saving time Else $utcTime = _DateAdd('n', $aSysTimeInfo[1], $sDate) ; account for time zone EndIf Return _DateDiff('s', "1970/01/01 00:00:00", $utcTime) EndFunc ;==>_GetUnixTime ;$blTrim: Year in short format and no seconds. Func _GetDate_fromUnixTime($iUnixTime, $iReturnLocal = True) Local $aRet = 0, $aDate = 0 Local $aMonthNumberAbbrev[13] = ["", "Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"] Local $timeAdj = 0 If Not $iReturnLocal Then Local $aSysTimeInfo = _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation() Local $timeAdj = $aSysTimeInfo[1] * 60 If $aSysTimeInfo[0] = 2 Then $timeAdj += $aSysTimeInfo[7] * 60 EndIf $aRet = DllCall("msvcrt.dll", "str:cdecl", "ctime", "int*", $iUnixTime + $timeAdj ) If @error Or Not $aRet[0] Then Return "" $aDate = StringSplit(StringTrimRight($aRet[0], 1), " ", 2) Return $aDate[4] & "/" & StringFormat("%.2d", _ArraySearch($aMonthNumberAbbrev, $aDate[1])) & "/" & $aDate[2] & " " & $aDate[3] EndFunc ;==>_GetUnixDate Enjoy!

      Hi, I created a gui with date field but formatted as time in HH:mm. It always shows "now-time". Even if I try to set it with GUICtrlSetData.
      #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() GUICreate("My GUI get date", 200, 200, 800, 200) Local $idDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("", 20, 20, 100, 20, $DTS_TIMEFORMAT) ; to select a specific default format Local $sStyle = "HH:mm" ; Just display hours and minutes <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< GUICtrlSendMsg($idDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle) ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($idDate) & @CRLF) GUICtrlSetData($idDate, "00:00") ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($idDate) & @CRLF) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Time", GUICtrlRead($idDate)) EndFunc ;==>Example How can I set the time field with another time and how can this field be set blank?

      Hi guys
      I need to get time of different city, London, Jerusalem, Mosca and many others. My starting script:
      #include <Date.au3> Local $iUTC, $iHour, $iMinute, $iSecond $iUTC = _Date_Time_GetSystemTime() $iHour = DllStructGetData($iUTC, "Hour") $iMinute = DllStructGetData($iUTC, "Minute") $iSecond = DllStructGetData($iUTC, "Second") ConsoleWrite("+UTC: " & $iHour & ":" & $iMinute & ":" & $iSecond & @CRLF) My idea was start from UTC time and then add-remove hours. But what about the DST, Daylight Savings Time? How i can know if in a country is active or not? There is an API? Example with _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation it will give the current time zone settings and not for other time zone. I don't have understand if is possible or not 
      On the help i have found SystemTimeToTzSpecificLocalTime but i don't have understand how to use for other time zone...
      Thanks
