Date chooser

Recommended Posts

Even if I know about the existence of the _GUICtrlMonthCal* functions, here is a simple home made "Visual date chooser" function. It is in a raw draft format and can likely be emprooved, but I think that, all in all, this "skeleton" is not so bad. Maybe it can be of use...

; Calendar mini
#include <date.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIEdit.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

Local $aResult = _Peek_A_Date()
MsgBox(0, 'Result', (@error) ? 'No date selected' : _DateTimeFormat($aResult[0] & "/" & $aResult[1] & "/" & $aResult[2], 1), 3)

; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
; a simple 'visual' date peeker function
; parameters are optional
; YYYY and MM for initial desired calendar
; last parameter: if true (default) first weekday is moonday
;                 if false first weekday is sunday
; returns: on success a 3 elements array as [0]Year yyyy; [1]Monthh mm; [2]Day dd
;          on error set @error and returns 0
; -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Func _Peek_A_Date($iYear = @YEAR, $iMonth = @MON, $bISO = True)
    Local $hCalendar = GUICreate('', 210, 160, -1, -1, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW), $iDay = @MDAY
    Local $IdDate = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', 25, 4, 160, 20, $SS_CENTER, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG), $idWeekDays = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', 2, 28, 206, 20)

      So what i need is a function that I pass a starting date into and it counts up to the current date. Example:
      2009-05-30
      2009-05-31
      2009-06-01
      ...
      2018-06-18
      How would I do that? I found the Date.au3 in the includes but I can't find anything close to a time object like I'm used to working with in Java. I just need some $date = setDate(2009-05-30) and from there I could just add a day every time. I need this to be in the very format I stated earlier and from what I can see everytime related to date and time is automatically changed to my german locale.
      €: I already tried setDate but instead it changed my PCs clock. Not quite what i was looking for

      So I get:
      $aMatch[0] Date(1499295600000)   this is supposed to be 06 Jul 2017
      $aMatch[0] Date(1483574400000)  this is supposed to be 05 Jan 2017
      does anybody know the formula to calculate the date from the large number?  It doesn't seem to be anything to do with DateToDayValue.
      thanks in advance.

      I am taking a Date & Time and splitting them using _DateTimeSplit, so that I can create a filename in the format: YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.jpg.  The only issue is that if the month, or day, is a two-digit number that begins with a zero (so less than 10), then the month, or day, is formatted as a single-digit number.  Suggestions on how to accomplish this?
      Example:
      20180101 becomes 2018, 1, 1
      20180303 becomes 2018, 3, 3
      20180505 becomes 2018, 5, 5
      20180606 becomes 2018, 6, 6
      20180909 becomes 2018, 9, 9
      What I want:
      20180101 becomes 2018, 01, 01
      20180303 becomes 2018, 03, 03
      20180505 becomes 2018, 05, 05
      20180606 becomes 2018, 06, 06
      20180909 becomes 2018, 09, 09
      Func _CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat = "2018/01/02 10:29:39") Local $aMyDate, $aMyTime, $sNewImageFileName _DateTimeSplit($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat, $aMyDate, $aMyTime) _ArrayDisplay($aMyDate) _ArrayDisplay($aMyTime) ;This will become file name $sNewImageFileName = $aMyDate[1] & $aMyDate[2] & $aMyDate[3] & "_" & $aMyTime[1] & $aMyTime[2] & $aMyTime[3] & ".jpg" ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sNewImageFileName = ' & $sNewImageFileName & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console EndFunc ;==>_CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat

      I've been looking through some different functions(not sure if that's the right word) to get the Date and time and I can't find one that doesn't include "/ " or ":" in what is returned.

      I'm trying to create a file name with this format "QuickConfig_MMDDYYYY_HHMM"  (doesn't matter if 24 or 12hr format)
      #include <Date.au3> Func _SaveConfig MouseClick('primary',155, 46, 1, 0) ;clicks save as WinWait('Save bluePRINT Configuration As...','', 4) MouseClick('primary',632, 47, 1, 0) ;clicks the file path bar $Documents = @MyDocumentsDir $FilePath = $Documents & '\BP3 Configs' Send($FilePath) Send('{ENTER}') MouseClick('primary',166, 580, 1, 0) ;clicks file name bar $FileName = 'QuickConfig_' & _NowDate & '_' & _NowTime Send($FileName) Send('{ENTER}') EndFunc  
       
      I'm wondering if there is a function somewhere to do this?
