#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I was making this because I needed to get the info from a date ctrl, and convert it to month-day-year or have it in a array. So heres the code:

; #FUNCTION# ;===============================================================================
; Name...........: _DateToNumber
; Description ...: Converts the information recieved from GUICtrlCreateDate() into MONTH-DAY-YEAR (In numbers) Or
;                  It will return it in an array
; Syntax.........: _DateToNumber($_InfoReturnedFromDateCtrl, $ActualDateIs=1)
; Parameters ....: $_InfoReturnedFromDateCtrl - The information that is returned from a GUICtrlCreateDate() Control.
;                  $ActualDateIs=1 - If $ActualDateIs = 1 Then It will return it as MONTH-DAY-YEAR, if it is 0 It
;                  will return it as an array $nArray[0] = 3 (MONTH-DAY-YEAR) $nArray[1] = MONTH, $nArray[2] = DAY, $nArray[3] = YEAR
; Return values .: Success - Returns either the MONTH-DAY-YEAR, or MONTH-DAY-YEAR in an array
;                  Failure - Returns 0 and sets @Error.
;                  |1 = $_InfoReturnedFromDateCtrl (Param 1) Is Blank
;                  |2 = $ActualDateIs is not 1 or 0

Func _DateToNumber($_InfoReturnedFromDateCtrl, $ActualDateIs = 1)
    If $_InfoReturnedFromDateCtrl="" Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If Not $ActualDateIs = 1 Or $ActualDateIs = 0 Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    $ActualDate = ""
    $_String = StringSplit($_InfoReturnedFromDateCtrl, " ")
    $Day = StringTrimRight($_String[3], 1)
    $Month = ""
    If $_String[2] = "January" Then $Month = "01"
    If $_String[2] = "February" Then $Month = "02"
    If $_String[2] = "March" Then $Month = "03"
    If $_String[2] = "April" Then $Month = "04"
    If $_String[2] = "May" Then $Month = "05"
    If $_String[2] = "June" Then $Month = "06"
    If $_String[2] = "July" Then $Month = "07"
    If $_String[2] = "August" Then $Month = "08"
    If $_String[2] = "September" Then $Month = "09"
    If $_String[2] = "October" Then $Month = "10"
    If $_String[2] = "November" Then $Month = "11"
    If $_String[2] = "December" Then $Month = "12"
    $ActualDate = $Month & "-" & $Day & "-" & $_String[4]
    If $ActualDateIs = 0 Then
        $String_ = StringSplit($ActualDate, "-")
        Return $String_
    EndIf
    Return $ActualDate
EndFunc   ;==>_DateToNumber

no comments? for real? :)

Not to be too harsh, but there's a lot wrong with this as a function anybody can use.

It works for you I'm sure, but what about somebody who doesn't have their "Long date" format (Control Panel, Regional Settings) set up the same way you do?

What if their date separator character is set to "-" instead of " " ?

What if they create the date control with the $DTS_SHORTDATEFORMAT style?

A lot more work needed before this is fit for public consumption. :(

Edit: spelling

Ah well thank you for your critizism. I really never thought of that like if they have different settings and never thought of the short date format. Thank you ResNullius

I just got around to looking at this and some of the problems are solved below. It does not solve all of the regionalization issues though. I'll leave that part for someone else. This includes test code.

;
#include <array.au3>
GUICreate("TEST")
$dc = GUICtrlCreateDate("",10,10)
GUISetState()
While 1
  Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case -3
      Exit
    Case $dc
      MsgBox(0, "Date",_DateToNumber(GUICtrlRead($dc)))
  EndSwitch
Wend

Func _DateToNumber($sDateCtrl, $rStr = 1)
  If $sDateCtrl="" Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
  If $rStr > 1 Or $rStr < 0 Then $rStr = 1
  Local $m, $aMth, $I, $Month = "", $ActualDate = ""
  For $I = 1 To StringLen($sDateCtrl)
    $sChr = StringMid($sDateCtrl, $I,1)
    If NOT StringIsAlNum($sChr) Then $sDateCtrl = StringReplace($sDateCtrl, $sChr, Chr(32))
  Next
  $_String = StringSplit(StringStripWS($sDateCtrl, 7), Chr(32))
  $mArray = StringSplit("Jan|Feb|Mar|Apr|May|Jun|Jul|Aug|Sep|Oct|Nov|Dec", "|")
  For $I = 1 To $mArray[0]
    $aMth = _ArraySearch($_String, $mArray[$I], 1, 0, 0, 1)
    If $aMth <> -1 Then ExitLoop
  Next
  $Day = $_String[3]
  $m = _ArraySearch($mArray, StringLeft($_String[$aMth], 3))
  $Month = ""
  $Month = StringFormat("%02u",$m)
  $ActualDate = $Month & "-" & $Day & "-" & $_String[4]
  If $rStr = 0 Then
    $String_ = StringSplit($ActualDate, "-")
    Return $String_
  EndIf
  Return $ActualDate
EndFunc  ;<===>_DateToNumber()
;
