Find lower date in multiple files

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have multiple text files with multiple dates inside on every line 6 of each file, with format 30/02/2017. If i use the code below, i can check for the dates in each file:

#Include <File.au3>
$path = FileOpenDialog("SELECT",@ScriptDir,"All (*.txt)",1)
Dim $LINE
_FileReadToArray($path,$LINE)
Local $ShowDate = StringLeft($LINE[6],10)
MsgBox(0,"LINE 6",$ShowDate)

I can also display which files have specific dates:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

GUICreate("listview items", 646, 430, 100, 200, -1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

MakeList()

Func MakeList()
    Local $aArray = _FindInFile('20/02/2017', @ScriptDir, '*.txt')
    $listviewD = GUICtrlCreateListView("     Data Confere", 488, 5, 156, 390)
    For $INDEX = 1 To $aArray[0]
        $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($aArray[$INDEX], "^.*\\|\.*$", "")
        $sFileNameTrim = StringTrimRight($sFileName,4)
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($sFileNameTrim, $listviewD)
    Next
    $Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(_GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($listviewD), 488, 400, 36, 17)
EndFunc   ;==>MakeList

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _FindInFile($sSearch, $sFilePath, $sMask = '*', $fRecursive = True, $fLiteral = Default, $fCaseSensitive = Default, $fDetail = Default)
    Local $sCaseSensitive = $fCaseSensitive ? '' : '/i', $sDetail = $fDetail ? '/n' : '/m', $sRecursive = ($fRecursive Or $fRecursive = Default) ? '/s' : ''
    If $fLiteral Then
        $sSearch = ' /c:' & $sSearch
    EndIf
    If $sMask = Default Then
        $sMask = '*'
    EndIf

    $sFilePath = StringRegExpReplace($sFilePath, '[\\/]+$', '') & '\'
    Local Const $aMask = StringSplit($sMask, ';')
    Local $iPID = 0, $sOutput = ''
    For $i = 1 To $aMask[0]
        $iPID = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & 'findstr ' & $sCaseSensitive & ' ' & $sDetail & ' ' & $sRecursive & ' "' & $sSearch & '" "' & $sFilePath & $aMask[$i] & '"', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)
        ProcessWaitClose($iPID)
        $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID)
    Next
    Return StringSplit(StringStripWS(StringStripCR($sOutput), BitOR($STR_STRIPLEADING, $STR_STRIPTRAILING)), @LF)
EndFunc   ;==>_FindInFile

But i can't display files that have dates, in line 6, different (lower) from the date i chose.

So if i search for a specific date, i can find it and display it, but i need to get the filenames of all the files that have dates different from the date i select and display it in a listview, and i can't find a way to do that. Something like 'Not 20/02/2017' in the function below would be way to easy...: :)

Func MakeList()
    Local $aArray = _FindInFile(Not '20/02/2017', @ScriptDir, '*.txt')
    $listviewD = GUICtrlCreateListView("     Data Confere", 488, 5, 156, 390)
    For $INDEX = 1 To $aArray[0]
        $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($aArray[$INDEX], "^.*\\|\.*$", "")
        $sFileNameTrim = StringTrimRight($sFileName,4)
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($sFileNameTrim, $listviewD)
    Next
    $Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(_GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($listviewD), 488, 400, 36, 17)
EndFunc   ;==>MakeList

Any ideas anyone? I admit, i'm completely lost.

telmob,

I would do something like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

$aFiles = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir, "*.txt", $FLTA_FILES, True)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 10, 10, 400, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($cLV, "Filename", 190)
_GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($cLV, "Date", 190)

; Loop through each file and get date
For $i = 1 To $aFiles[0]
    $aLines = FileReadToArray($aFiles[$i])
    $sDate = StringLeft($aLines[5], 10) ; Note element 5 = line 6 because array is 0-based
    ; Add data to ListView
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($aFiles[$i] & "|" & $sDate, $cLV)
Next

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Thanks for the quick reply Melba23. I took a while to understand the code, but i got it.

But i still need to show only the files with dates lower than a specific date, for example lower than 20/02/2017.

The script is currently showing all the files and dates.

I think an easy way to solve this would be to compare the two columns and display only the items that are lower from a specific date.

I have two text files with the date 20/02/2017 and one file with a different date, for example.

telmob,

Once you have the date from within each file, use _DateDiff to check it against the specific date and only display the file/date if it is earlier. You will have to get the dates into the correct format to be compared, but that is trivial.

Nice!

This time i got it working.

Thank you again for your time and help.

 

For $i = 1 To $aFiles[0]
    $aLines = FileReadToArray($aFiles[$i])
    $sDate = StringLeft($aLines[5], 10) ; Note element 5 = line 6 because array is 0-based
 $original = $sDate
 $new = StringRegExpReplace($original, "\A(\d*)/(\d*)/(\d*)","$3/$2/$1")
$iDateCalc = _DateDiff('D', $new, "2017/02/10")
$sLastDate = $iDateCalc <> "0"
    $sFileNameTrim1 = StringRegExpReplace($aFiles[$i], "^.*\\|\.txt", "")
    ; Add data to ListView
    If $iDateCalc <> "0" Then GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($sFileNameTrim1, $cLV)
Next
