Convert string to Date

11 posts in this topic

I'm using the Active Directory UDF:

_AD_GetObjectAttribute($aUser[$i], 'whenCreated')

but I get the "date" like this 20100428063235.

Is there a built-in converter for this kind "date"?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

How should be the output format?

 

You can try something like this here:

#include <Date.au3>

$sDate = "20100428063235"

$sConvert = StringLeft($sDate,4) & "/" & StringMid($sDate, 5, 2) & "/" & StringMid($sDate, 7, 2) & " " & _ ;date
            StringMid($sDate, 9, 2) & ":" & StringMid($sDate, 11, 2) & ":" & StringRight($sDate, 2) ;time

ConsoleWrite(_DateTimeFormat($sConvert, 1) & @CRLF)

Or a simple regex

$sDate = "20100428063235"
$res = StringRegExpReplace($sDate, '(\d{4})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})', "$1/$2/$3 $4:$5:$6")
Msgbox(0,"", $res)

There isn't a built-in, but as you can see:

20100428063235

Year Month Day Hour Minute Second

 

Now you can make exactly the same or similar functions as UEZ & mikell told you, or just use their functions :)

Global $sDate = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($aUser[$i], 'whenCreated')
            $sConvert = StringLeft($sDate,4) & "/" & StringMid($sDate, 5, 2) & "/" & StringMid($sDate, 7, 2) & " " & _ ;date
            StringMid($sDate, 9, 2) & ":" & StringMid($sDate, 11, 2) & ":" & StringRight($sDate, 2) ;time
            MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, $aUser[$i], $sConvert)
            Global $sconDate = _DateTimeFormat($sConvert,1)
;           $sconDate = "2005/03/24"
            if _DateIsValid($sconDate) Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, $aUser[$i], $sConvert)
            Else
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Valid Date", "The specified date for: " & $aUser[$i] & " is invalid: " & $sConvert)
            EndIf

Your outcome looks ok, but when I try to validate it, it fails.

$res = StringRegExpReplace($sDate, '(\d{4})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})', "$1/$2/$3 $4:$5:$6")

Your outcome looks ok, but when I try to validate it, it fails.

But if I do this:
$sConDate = "2005/03/24"

there is no problem.


Yours sincerely

Then have a look at what is his regexp giving? What is the outcome? Is it matching the pattern which _DateIsValid acccepting?

Well, what it the real output from _AD_GetObjectAttribute? I don't have a AD yet to test.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
