List every day from a starting day in american format


Recommended Posts

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 :)

Oh man. So youre saying all I have to do is input the date in correct format then DateAdd one day every time? I feel a little dense for not searching better. Thanks! I was so focused on my Date object, I completely forgot the date I input already is the pendant to the Date Object I'm used to.

After a little bit of testing I found out the format is not the one I was looking for, after the _DateAdd I get slashes instead of hypens. I'm solving this with a string replace. Is there a better solution?

"Better" is a relative term.  What's "better" for you may not be "better" for someone else.  With that said, StringReplace() is probably the quickest and easiest way to change the slashes to dashes in this specific case.  However, for more complex date/time conversions or to use one conversion method throughout, you may be interested in using _Date_Time_Convert().  You can read more about the UDF using the link below.

American format is : mm/dd/yyyy

I believe StringReplace would be the most easiest, otherwise you could use StringFormat, StringSplit.

#include <Date.au3>
Local $sStartDate = "2009/05/30"
Local $sDateUpdate = $sStartDate
Local $aDateUpdate = StringSplit($sStartDate, "/", 2)
For $i =  1 To _DateDiff("D", $sStartDate, _NowCalc())
    $sDateUpdate = StringReplace(_DateAdd("D", 1, $sDateUpdate), "/", "-")
    ConsoleWrite("StringReplace : " & $sDateUpdate & @CRLF)
    $aDateUpdate = StringSplit(_DateAdd("D", 1, _ArrayToString($aDateUpdate, "-")), "/", 2)
    ConsoleWrite("StringSplit : " & _ArrayToString($aDateUpdate, "-") & @CRLF)
Next

A bit simpler:

#include <Date.au3>

Local $sStartDate = "2009/05/30"
Local $sNextDate
For $i =  1 To 31
    $sNextDate = StringRegExpReplace(_DateAdd("D", $i, $sStartDate), "(\d\d\d\d)/(\d\d)/(\d\d)", "$2-$3-$1")
    ConsoleWrite($sNextDate & @LF)
Next

Remember the OP wants dates in mm/dd/yyyy format.

Was confused about that as well, but I think he meant yyyy-mm-dd which is why I said that wasn't the American date format in my first post.  It appears they are just using StringReplace at the moment, see Siryx last post.

      it recomended to use the builten function
      _DateDiff
       
       
       
      hello autoit team
      i made a simple function to help me get the difference between to date
      i liked to share it with you
      the paramatrs of this function
      is firstdate and lastedate
      the two params is as the following
      year/month/day hours:minuts:seconds
      here is the function
       
      #include <date.au3> func _dateBetween($s_firstDate, $s_lastDate = default) if not (StringRegExp($s_firstDate, "((\d{4})\/(\d{2})\/(\d{2})\s(\d{2})\:(\d{2})\:(\d{2}))", 0) = 1) then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) if $s_lastDate = default then $s_lastDate = @year & "/" & @mon & "/" & @mday & " " & @hour & ":" & @min & ":" & @sec if not (StringRegExp($s_lastDate, "((\d{4})\/(\d{2})\/(\d{2})\s(\d{2})\:(\d{2})\:(\d{2}))", 0) = 1) then Return SetError(2, 0, 0) local $a_FirstSplitDate = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_firstDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$2"), "/", 2) local $a_FirstSplitTime = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_firstDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$3"), ":", 2) local $a_lastSplitDate = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_lastDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$2"), "/", 2) local $a_LastSplitTime = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_lastDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$3"), ":", 2) local $i_firstDateValue = _DateToDayValue($a_FirstSplitDate[0], $a_FirstSplitDate[1], $a_FirstSplitDate[2]) local $i_LastDateValue = _DateToDayValue($a_LastSplitDate[0], $a_LastSplitDate[1], $a_LastSplitDate[2]) if $i_firstDateValue > $i_LastDateValue then Return SetError(3, 0, 0) local $i_totalDays = $i_LastDateValue-$i_firstDateValue if not ($i_totalDays = 0) then if $a_FirstSplitTime[0] <= $a_lastSplitTime[0] then $i_totalDays += 1 $a_lastSplitTime[0] -= $a_FirstSplitTime[0] elseIf $a_FirstSplitTime[0] > $a_lastSplitTime[0] then if $i_totalDays > 0 then $i_totalDays -= 1 $a_FirstSplitTime[0] -= $a_lastSplitTime[0] endIf endIf endIf local $i_totalYears = 0 if $i_totalDays >= 365 then While $i_totalDays >= 365 $i_totalYears += 1 $i_totalDays -= 365 Wend endIf local $i_TotalMonths = 0 if $i_totalDays >= 30 then While $i_totalDays >= 30 $i_totalMonths += 1 $i_totalDays -= 30 Wend endIf local $i_totalWeeks = 0 if $i_totalDays >= 7 then While $i_totalDays >= 7 $i_totalWeeks += 1 $i_totalDays -= 7 Wend endIf $i_totalSeconds = ((($a_FirstSplitTime[0]*60)*60)+($a_FirstSplitTime[1]*60)+($a_FirstSplitTime[2]))-((($a_lastSplitTime[0]*60)*60)+($a_lastSplitTime[1]*60)+($a_LastSplitTime[2])) local $minus = "" if $i_totalSeconds < 0 then $minus = "-" $i_totalSeconds = StringReplace($i_totalSeconds, "-", "") endIf local $i_totalHours = 0 if $i_totalSeconds >= 3600 then While $i_totalSeconds >= 3600 $i_totalHours += 1 $i_totalSeconds -= 3600 Wend endIf local $i_totalminuts = 0 if $i_totalSeconds >= 60 then While $i_totalSeconds >= 60 $i_totalminuts += 1 $i_totalSeconds -= 60 Wend endIf local $a_arrayReturn[7] $a_arrayReturn[0] = $i_totalYears $a_arrayReturn[1] = $i_totalMonths $a_arrayReturn[2] = $i_totalWeeks $a_arrayReturn[3] = $i_totalDays $a_arrayReturn[4] = $minus & $i_totalHours $a_arrayReturn[5] = $minus & $i_totalminuts $a_arrayReturn[6] = $minus & $i_totalSeconds return $a_arrayReturn endFunc  
      here is an example
       
       
      $a_calc = _dateBetween("2015/02/12 23:00:05", "2030/02/12 23:25:50") msgBox(64, "result", StringFormat("the difference is : %i years and %i months and %i weeks and %i days and %i hours and %i minuts and %i seconds", $a_calc[0], $a_calc[1], $a_calc[2], $a_calc[3], $a_calc[4], $a_calc[5], $a_calc[6]))

      Hi All,
      Please help me on how to fetch date/time of last windows 10 system restore point using autoit? Basically its about querying the last restore point.
    • By TheDcoder
      Hi everyone,
      I am bit stumped as to why I am not able to set the time in the Date control
      #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() GUICreate("My GUI get date", 200, 200, 800, 200) Local $idDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("1953/04/25", 10, 10, 185, 20, $DTS_TIMEFORMAT) ; to select a specific default format Local $sStyle = "HH:mm:ss" GUICtrlSendMsg($idDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle) ; Set time Local $iRet = GUICtrlSetData($idDate, '13:33:37') ConsoleWrite('GUICtrlSetData returned ' & ($iRet = 1 ? 'success' : 'failure') & @CRLF) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Time", GUICtrlRead($idDate)) EndFunc ;==>Example The documentation for GUICtrlSetData clearly mentions that it uses the same format as GUICtrlRead:
      But I get failure
      What gives?
      Thanks for the help in advance!

      Here is an other UDF for string handling :
      Date handling
      _StringDateConvert:  convert a date from one format ("YMD", "MDY" or "DMY") to another.
      _StringIsDate:  checks if a date with a given format is valid
      String management
      _StringCount: count of occurrences that appear in a string
      _StringFormatBytesSize: formatting a dimension expressed in bytes (bytes) in MB, TB, ...)
      _StringIsEndingWith: check if a string end with some characters
      _StringIsStartingWith: check if a string start with some characters
      _StringJoinArray:  concatenate elements of an array to rebuild a string
      _StringPadLeft: filling a string with characters on the left
      _StringPadRight: fill a string with characters on the right
      _StringRemoveFrenchAccent: remove french accent
      _StringRemoveChars: deleting characters from a string
      _StringStrip: eliminate characters at the begin and/or at the  end of a string
      _StringTitleCaseFrench: capitalize the first letter of each word with elimination of french accents
      _StringWSClean: simple replacement of "White Spaces",  remove beginning and trailing spaces and multiple spaces removal
      Any comments, suggestions for improvement or constructive criticism are welcome.
      Below you will find the UDF and a demo program.

      Hey All,
      I'm trying to set the date using a variable.
      Basically, I set the date into the input box, then I change the input box, say, I change the year.
      Then I set what I typed into the input box into the Date Picker.

      This is a demo code.
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> ;Start GUI includes #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiDateTimePicker.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) $Date1 = GUICtrlCreateDate("2019/02/02 23:16:26", 80, 64, 186, 21, $DTS_SHORTDATEFORMAT) $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 80, 152, 185, 21) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Set data", 176, 96, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read from input", 176, 200, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Button1 $Read = GUICtrlRead($Date1) GUICtrlSetData($Input1, $Read) MsgBox(-1, "", $Read) Case $Button2 $Read = GUICtrlRead($Input1) $New_date = StringReplace($Read, "/", "") $DAY = StringLeft($New_date, 2) $MON = StringMid($New_date, 4, 3) $YEAR = StringRight($New_date, 4) MsgBox(-1, "", $DAY & $MON & $YEAR) ;_GUICtrlDTP_SetFormat($hWndDate, "yyyy/MM/dd") $DateFormate = ($DAY & " " & $MON & " " & $YEAR) $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032 ; $DTM_SETFORMATW GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1, $DateFormate, 0, "MM/dd/yyyy") EndSwitch WEnd
