Detect checkbox state in date control

6 posts in this topic

I am using a date control with the ex-style $DTS_SHOWNONE (this puts a checkbox into the date control). I cannot

figure out how to determine what the state of this checkbox is. GuiCtrlRead and GuiCtrlgetState dont seem to work.

Any ideas?

I think this works

$tStruct = dllstructcreate("ushort[8]")
$Checked  = GUICtrlSendMsg($dateBox,$DTM_GETSYSTEMTIME,0,dllstructgetptr($tstruct)) = 0

Use ControlCommand(...,"IsChecked") to check the state.

Use ControlCommand(...,"IsChecked") to check the state.

Can you tell us what the control id is for the check box in a date control?

Thanks. I haven't used these techniques involving dll structures before. Is there a good tutorial you

could recommend on working with dll structures and send message etc. Otherwise, I'll just go on

google and see what I can find.

The help file is a good place to start. DllCall needs to be understood and DllStructCreate and related. I find it helpful to read posts with problems and trying to understand the answers, or trying to work out an answer myself.
