PAL timecode calculator UDF

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I use Autoit for a while, already made some automation for a TV station's master control room with it. I made a UDF to easily work with PAL timecode and time with milliseconds, convert, add or subtract them. Feel free to use it if you want something like this :)

MsgBox(0, "5", _tcAdd($msTC1, $msTC2, "M"));        Adds $palTC1 to $palTC2, turns hour back to 0 after 23, returns time with milliseconds format
MsgBox(0, "6", _tcAdd($msTC1, $msTC2, "M", 0));     Adds $palTC1 to $palTC2, hours can be infinite, returns time with milliseconds format

MsgBox(0, "7", _tcSub($palTC2, $palTC1));           Subtract $palTC1 from $palTC2, returns PAL TC format
MsgBox(0, "8", _tcSub($palTC2, $palTC1, "M"));      Subtract $palTC1 from $palTC2, time with milliseconds format
MsgBox(0, "9", _tcSub($msTC1, $msTC2));             Subtract $palTC1 from $palTC2, returns PAL TC format - when hits zero, counts back from 24:00:00.00
MsgBox(0, "10", _tcSub($msTC1, $msTC2, "M"));       Subtract $palTC1 from $palTC2, time with milliseconds format - when hits zero, counts back from 24:00:00.000

MsgBox(0, "11", _tcFormatChange($palTC2));          Convert PAL TC to time with milliseconds and back
MsgBox(0, "12", _tcFormatChange($msTC2));           Convert PAL TC to time with milliseconds and back

Thanks for posting your UDF.
If you want to make them better start with using this:
 

#Tidy_Parameters=/sort_funcs /reel
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w- 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w 7

And read about #include directive, as in non standalone Include file it should be used like this:

#include "_PAL_TC_Calc.au3"

      Hello,
      as a start in Autoit i tried something i was missing since im using Autoit. 

      I build a custom MessageBox which has a large amount of custom options and which scales its size on the parameters you set. 

      Aviable Settings:
      -Title
      -Unlimited Buttons
      -Text Color (Buttons, Text)

      -Background Color (Msgbox, Buttons, Label) 

      -Button Timeout
      -Autoclose Timeout
      -Icon (Default, No Icon, Custom)

      -Label/ Button Style. 
      -Transparency

      I tried to keep this as close as i could to a Msgbox i was used too on my batch times.

      After i was ready i realised, @Melba23 probably build a way better msgbox which would have suit my needs enterly, anyway thanks to @Melba23 because i use his Stringsize UDF. 

       
       
      local $Message = _sMsgBox("Test", 6, "Continue?") if @extended <> -1 Then MsgBox(0, @extended, $Message&" Button pressed")

      Dear members, 
      I am working on a project where, emails from outlook are to be read and moved to various folders within the mailbox, based on the content of the emails.
      I used the below code for moving mails. It works fine when I run it against individual mail ids. But when I run it on Shared mailbox, the mails are not moved to respective folders.
      _OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $sEntryId, Default, $sDestinationFolder) The value of $sEntryId is saved in an excel report initially. The current process reads the $sEntryId from the excel and passes it to "_OL_ItemMove" statement.
      Requesting the guidance of the forum members in this issue.

      Good evening everyone
      I am working with Word UDF ( thanks @water! ), and, especially, with the function _Word_DocFindReplace().
      The replace does work everywhere in the document, but, it does not work in Headers or Footers.
      Am I missing something or am I forced to use the code below?
      I have already looked in the Help file ( about _Word_DocFindReplace() ), but there are no mentions about replace text in Headers/Footers.
      Sub FindAndReplaceFirstStoryOfEachType() Dim rngStory As Range For Each rngStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges With rngStory.Find .Text = "find text" .Replacement.Text = "I'm found .Wrap = wdFindContinue .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll End With Next rngStory End Sub Thanks everyone in advance
