date and time as filename?

12 posts in this topic

is it possible to name a filename with the current date and time? (if possible including seconds.)

_Date_Time_GetSystemTime()

_Date_Time_GetSystemTime()

format it with / and : (so cant use those chars in a filename)

any ideas?

C'mon... use StringReplace...

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

you mean like this?

$filename = @HOUR & "." & @MIN & "." & @SEC & "_" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "-" & @YEAR

If @HOUR="13" Then

@HOUR="01"

EndIf

If @HOUR="14" Then

@HOUR="02"

EndIf

If @HOUR="15" Then

@HOUR="03"

EndIf

etc.... ???
