Can't compare dates

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find the months between 2 dates. 1 date from a folder and the current date.

If I do exampel 1 it works

Local $iDateCalc = _DateDiff('M', "2015/10/23 00:00:00", _NowCalc())
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Number of: " & $iDateCalc)

but exampel 2 do not.

Local $aFileDate = FileGetTime($aUsersTarget[$i][2] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][3] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][4] & "\" & $sFileName)
Local $iDateCalc = _DateDiff('M', $aFileDate[0] & "/" &  $aFileDate[1] & "/" & $aFileDate[2] & " 00:00:00", _NowCalc())
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $iDateCalc)

 

 Can someone help me?

FileGetTime() returns an Array by default. Look at the helpfile for defining the return of a string with the optional second parameter.

Tried that too.

Local $sFileDate = _ConvertTimeFormat(FileGetTime($aUsersTarget[$i][2] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][3] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][4] & "\" & $sFileName,0,1))
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sFileDate)
Local $iDateCalc = _DateDiff('M', $sFileDate, _NowCalc())
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $iDateCalc)


Func _ConvertTimeFormat ( $_FileTime ) ; convert 20100716213616 string time format to this time format YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS
    Return StringMid ( $_FileTime, 1 , 4 ) & '/' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 5 , 2 ) & '/' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 7 , 2 ) & _
    ' ' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 9 , 2 ) & ':' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 11 , 2 ) & ':' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 13 , 2 )
EndFunc ;==> _ConvertTimeFormat ( )

Same result.

Result = 0

Are you sure your filepath is correct? Because this:

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#include <Date.au3>

$sFileDate=_ConvertTimeFormat(FileGetTime(@AutoItExe,1,1))
ConsoleWrite($sFileDate&@CRLF)
Local $iDateCalc = _DateDiff('M', $sFileDate, _NowCalc())
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $iDateCalc)



Func _ConvertTimeFormat ( $_FileTime ) ; convert 20100716213616 string time format to this time format YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS
    Return StringMid ( $_FileTime, 1 , 4 ) & '/' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 5 , 2 ) & '/' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 7 , 2 ) & _
    ' ' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 9 , 2 ) & ':' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 11 , 2 ) & ':' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 13 , 2 )
EndFunc ;==> _ConvertTimeFormat ( )

works for me.

when you run my small example in Post #4 what's the output in console, and what's show in the MsgBox?

As i can't test your small script snipet (unpopulatet array) please make a small reproducer in which the error occurs.

When I run your small example I get 4 in the msgbox, but nothing in the console.

This is what I try:

For $i = 0 To UBound($aUsersTarget) - 1
    $aComputerOwner = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("OU=computers," & $sSiteOU & ",OU=company,DC=AD,DC=company,DC=ORG","(&(objectclass=computer)(managedby=" & $aUsersTarget[$i][0] & "))",Default,"cn")
    if $aComputerOwner <> 0 Then
        Local $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($aUsersTarget[$i][2] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][3] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][4] & "\" & "*.")
        If $hSearch = -1 Then
;           MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Error: No files/directories matched the search pattern.")
        EndIf
        Local $sFileName = ""
        While 1
            $sFileName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
            ; If there is no more file matching the search.
            If @error Then ExitLoop
            if UBound(_ArrayFindAll($aComputerOwner,$sFileName)) = 0 Then
                if StringInStr($sFileName,StringUpper(stringRight($sSiteOU,2) & StringMid($sSiteOU,StringInStr($sSiteOU,",")-2,2)&"LT")) <> 0 Or StringInStr($sFileName,StringUpper(stringRight($sSiteOU,2) & StringMid($sSiteOU,StringInStr($sSiteOU,",")-2,2)&"DT")) <> 0 Then
                    Local $sFileDate = _ConvertTimeFormat(FileGetTime($aUsersTarget[$i][2] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][3] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][4] & "\" & $sFileName,0,1))
                    Local $iDateCalc = _DateDiff('M', $sFileDate, _NowCalc())
                    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $iDateCalc) ; <--- Not the result I expected
                EndIf
            EndIf
        WEnd
        ; Close the search handle.
        FileClose($hSearch)
    EndIf
Next

 

The attachment is for showing the data before and after use of _ConvertTimeFormat and current date and time.

When i change my testscript to

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#include <Date.au3>

$sFileDate='20151127092237'
;$sFileDate=FileGetTime($aUsersTarget[$i][2] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][3] & "\" & $aUsersTarget[$i][4] & "\" & $sFileName,0,1)
;$sFileDate=FileGetTime(@AutoItExe,1,1)
$sFileDate=_ConvertTimeFormat($sFileDate)
ConsoleWrite($sFileDate&@CRLF)
Local $iDateCalc = _DateDiff('M', $sFileDate, _NowCalc())
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "_DateDiff", $iDateCalc)



Func _ConvertTimeFormat ( $_FileTime ) ; convert 20100716213616 string time format to this time format YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS
    Return StringMid ( $_FileTime, 1 , 4 ) & '/' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 5 , 2 ) & '/' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 7 , 2 ) & _
    ' ' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 9 , 2 ) & ':' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 11 , 2 ) & ':' & StringMid ( $_FileTime, 13 , 2 )
EndFunc ;==> _ConvertTimeFormat ( )

the MsgBox show 1 and the console:

...
--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop
2015/11/27 09:22:37
+>21:41:08 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:0
...

Again: build a runable reproducer script whitout AD which produce the error.

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.19 contains 194 functions divided into these topics:
      window and screen mouse and GUI GUI controls logics and mathematics string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks

      is it possible to make a wall chams in rainbow six siege using autoit scripts? tell me please and how .

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi everyone!

      I'm using AutoIt for several years now and I really get the hang of it!
      I'm quite the curious OCD perfectionist kind of guy, so I can't help wondering..
      what would be the best way to program stuff for the compiler / interpreter / scripting engine?
      We're talking about the inner workings of the AutoIt's core here, and how to give it as less friction as possible but also take care of the machine running the script.
      For example,
      Imagine a script where we would constantly have to assign a Boolean value to a variable:
      ; A: local $bool = false $bool = true $bool = true $bool = false ; B: local $bool = false check(true) check(true) check(false) func check($b) if $bool = $b then return $bool = $b endfunc In this case, would it be better to just overwrite (A) the variable or first check if we really need to (B)?
      What would be best for the computers memory if it had to do this for a year non stop?
      Another example, imagine you're writing a function with an if statement.
      If you would look under the hood of AutoIt, what would be the best way to give your computer as less work / code nesting stack filling as possible:
      ; A: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something else ;do something else endif endfunc ; B: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something return endif ;do something else endfunc Last one for now:
      ; A: while 1 ; do stuff wend ; B: while true ; do stuff wend Isn't AutoIt taking an extra step in converting 1 to a Boolean in example (A)?
      Or is it the other way around and does the (B) way make AutoIt first convert a keyword (true or false) to a numerical value (0 or 1).
      I think this kinda detail stuff is quite interesting, makes me wonder how AutoIt converts and runs our code.
      What are your opinions on this topic?
      Any coders who know more about the inner workings of AutoIt?
      Any people like me who ask themselves similar questions (with examples)?

      Let me know! 😉
