Go to solution Solved by Musashi,

Recommended Posts

Hello

fellow autoit.

I have two questions, 
the first is, it is possible to put the date in a variable.
using <Date.au3>.

    
the second is, it is possible to add two days to the date in a variable.
using <Date.au3>.
for example today is 2022/04/18. and what I want to put is 2022/04/20.
 

Please could you give me examples.

Thank you very much

1) Which date do you want to store in a variable? The current date? Including Time?

2) How would you name a function that adds dates? Did you hava a look at the list of functions the Date UDF provides? As always: the help file is your friend :)

Again have a look at the list of functions the Date UDF provides. There is a function that provides the current date/time. Assign the result of this function to a variable. Done :)

1. is it possible to put the (current) date in a variable using <Date.au3>

2. is it possible to add two days to the (current) date in a variable using <Date.au3> for example 2022/04/18 -> 2022/04/20.

 

#include <Date.au3>
Local $sCurrentDate, $sNewDate
$sCurrentDate = _NowCalcDate()  ; current date in format YYYY/MM/DD
$sNewDate     = _DateAdd('d', 2, $sCurrentDate) ; current date + 2 days
MsgBox(4096, "Show Dates : ", "Current "& @TAB & "= "  & $sCurrentDate & @CRLF & _
                              "NewDate "& @TAB & "= "  & $sNewDate & @CRLF)

You are lucky that Musashi provided code for all of your questions 🙂

these are basically straight from the documentation
