Hi experts.

I'm sorry if this has been explained before.

I have a list of dates. Some are like this: YYYY/MM/DD and that is ok. But then I have some like this: DD/MM/YYYY and that is not ok.

I want to go through the list in convert it to YYYY/MM/DD.

How do you convert DD/MM/YYYY to YYYY/MM/DD?

ok. Will look into it.

I have another thought.

If you have a mixed list of date like YYYY/MM/DD, DD/MM/YYYY and MM/YYYY/DD or any kind of mixed dates.

How do you convert it to YYYY/MM/DD?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

mmm, 4the YYYY is easy with StringLen, but the limit is when MM <= 12 and DD <= 12... because you don't have a way to understand if is a MM or DD, the first 12 is the limit after 12 is DD because the MM limit is 12. At the moment I don't have any idea.

Something like this :)

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>

Local $aDateTimes[3] = ["17/03/2017", "2017/03/17", "03/2017/17"]
Local $aDateTimesSplitted
For $i = 0 To UBound($aDateTimes) - 1
    $aDateTimesSplitted = StringSplit($aDateTimes[$i], "/", $STR_NOCOUNT)
    If($aDateTimesSplitted[0] > 12 And $aDateTimesSplitted[0] <= 31 And $aDateTimesSplitted[1] <= 12) Then ; DD/MM/YYYY
        MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Date format:", "Old date format: " & $aDateTimes[$i] & @CRLF & "New date format: " & $aDateTimesSplitted[2] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[1] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[0])
    ElseIf($aDateTimesSplitted[0] <= 12 And $aDateTimesSplitted[1] > 31) Then ; MM/YYYY/DD
        MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Date format:", "Old date format: " & $aDateTimes[$i] & @CRLF & "New date format: " & $aDateTimesSplitted[1] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[0] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[2])
    Else
        MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Date format:", "Date format: " & $aDateTimes[$i])
    EndIf
Next

Where you find $aDateTimes, you could find a function that read lines and then, paste the new line as I do in the MsgBox...
This is just an example...
Tell me if this script works correctly in your specific case :)

I will always thank you for the time you spent for me.
I'm here to ask, and from your response, I'd like to learn.
By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

Making that simpler:

Local $aDateTimes[3] = ["17/03/2017", "2017/03/17", "03/2017/17"]

For $i = 0 To UBound($aDateTimes) - 1
    $aDateTimes[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($aDateTimes[$i], "(\d\d)/(\d\d)/(\d\d\d\d)", "$3/$2/$1")  ; deals with DD/MM/YYYY
    $aDateTimes[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($aDateTimes[$i], "(\d\d)/(\d\d\d\d)/(\d\d)", "$2/$1/$3")  ; deals with MM/YYYY/DD
    ; there is NO way to deal with [unmanageable] US-style dates MM/DD/YYYY for DD < 13
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aDateTimes)

A way that can be valid is to parameterize the position of the year in the position within it stringsplit

DD MM YYYY     YYYY MM DD      MM YYYY DD
["11/11/2017",  "2017/11/11",   "11/2017/11"]

postion YYYY[2] postion YYYY[0] postion YYYY[1]

firts target is find the 4char value in the result of StringSplit then isolate the YYYY

in the loop you can tell if the position YYYY = 2 ... then DD MM YYYY etc...

      Hello Everyone! 
      I'm attempting to create a checklist app that performs other functions. For performance, I would like to check the box, then have the button to the right enabled. After that button is pressed, the second checkbox is enabled, and ready to be checked, allowing the second button to be pressed. After the second button is pressed, the completion/exit button is enabled/shown. I have my code that currently creates the GUI, creates the checkbox, but when you check it it enables the button and the next checkbox. Can't seem to figure out a Case for GUISetOnEvent. Any assistance would be appreciated!
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Below is the GUI interface _DeploymentProcess() Func _DeploymentProcess() $aStep1 = GUICreate("Deployment Process", 475, 345, 500, 175) $CBcStep1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("1. Step 01.", 15, 25, 300, 25) $BTNS1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 01", 365, 25, 90, 20) $CBcStep2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("2. Step 02.", 15, 50, 300, 25) $BTNS2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 02", 365, 50, 90, 20) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) $CBcStep3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hurray! You're Complete!", 85, 276, 300, 60) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) ; Below are the button and checkbox enables/disables. GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete($aStep1) Return ; Step 1 Case $CBcStep1 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf ; Step 2 Case $CBcStep2 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf Case $CBcStep3 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS10, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) Else GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE) EndIf Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $CBcStep3 #comments-end Exit EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      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.
