How to keep leading zero

Recommended Posts

litlmike

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

Something like this? :

;This will become file name
    $sNewImageFileName = StringFormat("%04i%02i%02i_%02i%02i%02i.jpg",$aMyDate[1],$aMyDate[2],$aMyDate[3],$aMyTime[1],$aMyTime[2],$aMyTime[3])

Ahhhh!  Thanks for that!  I was about to do this, which is far less elegant:

;Make sure that the array still contains the zero in the format, so that 7 remains as 07
    If $aMyDate[2] < 10 Then
        $aMyDate[2] = String(0 & $aMyDate[2])
    EndIf

    If $aMyDate[3] < 10 Then
        $aMyDate[3] = String(0 & $aMyDate[3])
    EndIf

    If $aMyTime[1] < 10 Then
        $aMyTime[1] = String(0 & $aMyTime[1])
    EndIf

    If $aMyTime[2] < 10 Then
        $aMyTime[2] = String(0 & $aMyTime[2])
    EndIf

    If $aMyTime[3] < 10 Then
        $aMyTime[3] = String(0 & $aMyTime[3])
    EndIf

RegExp alternative.

Local $sNewImageFileName = StringRegExpReplace($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat, '(\d{4})/(\d{2})/(\d{2}) (\d{2}):(\d{2}):(\d{2})', '$1$2$3_$4$5$6') & ".jpg"

or forget what it represents and just split the string, since its already exactly like you want it

_CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat()

Func _CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat = "2018/01/02 10:29:39")

    $aDateTime = stringsplit($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat , "/: " , 2)

    $sNewImageFileName = $aDateTime[0] & $aDateTime[1] & $aDateTime[2] & "_" & $aDateTime[3] & $aDateTime[4] & $aDateTime[5] & ".jpg"
    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sNewImageFileName = ' & $sNewImageFileName & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

EndFunc   ;==>_CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat

 

all in all, pretty much this

msgbox(0, '' , _CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat())

Func _CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat = "2018/01/02 10:29:39")

return stringreplace(stringreplace(StringReplace($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat , "/" , "") , ":" , "") , " " , "_") & ".jpg"

EndFunc   ;==>_CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat

      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'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?

      I have date in the string format as "DD-MM-YYYY".
       
      I need to get yesterday's date from it.
      I tried converting this from _DateTimeFormat but not working.
      Is there any direct UDF available to get this.?
