Updating A Guictrlcreatedate

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

What format should the data be in to properly update a date control - I am making the assumption that the form GUICtrlSetData ($datecontrol, #a valid date#) is the format, but I can't seem to figure out what the language wants for #a valid date#.

20060421

2006/04/21

04/21/2006

I know I'll go " :think: but of course :"> " when I hear the answer - so please be kind :(

This should give you an idea.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI get date", 200, 200, 800, 200)
$date = GUICtrlCreateDate("1953/04/25", 10, 10, 185, 20)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change", 10, 40)

; to select a specific default format
$DTM_SETFORMAT = 0x1005
$style = "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:s"
GUICtrlSendMsg($date, $DTM_SETFORMAT, 0, $style)

GUISetState()
While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Select
        Case GUIGetMsg() == $button
            GUICtrlSetData($date, "2006/04/21")
    EndSelect
WEnd

Thank you very much - this is my first go around with the date control, and for some reason I just couldn't get it right.

I took my first programming course in '83 on a TRS 80 model III - mostly, it's just a joke ... but there is a certain amount of nostalga involved as well.
