To get the date in desired format

Recommended Posts

venkat

Hi,

I have to send a date as input value to generate a report.

If it is monday i have to give the input dates as friday's date to today's date.

If it is other than monday i have to give the input values as previous date to today's date.

I used the _now() function which gives the data in the format YYYY/MM/DD

but I need the date in MM/DD/YY format. Also how to check for the monday conition.

Thanks in Advance.

venkat,

I believe this does what you want:

#Include <Date.au3>

Global $iYear, $iMon, $iDay

$iToday = _DateToDayValue(@YEAR, @MON, @MDAY)

If @WDAY = 2 Then
; Today is Monday
    $iStart = $iToday - 3
Else
; Today is not Monday
    $iStart = $iToday - 1
EndIf

_DayValueToDate($iStart, $iYear, $iMon, $iDay)
$sRange = $iDay & "/" & $iMon & "/" & StringRight($iYear, 2) & " - "
_DayValueToDate($iToday, $iYear, $iMon, $iDay)
$sRange &= $iDay & "/" & $iMon & "/" & StringRight($iYear, 2)

ConsoleWrite($sRange & @CRLF)

$pv_StrucA = DllStructCreate( "short Year;short Month;short Dow;short Day;short Hour;short Minute;short Second;short MSeconds" )

Friend,

I made a mistake when describing the format.

Actually I need to give the input to an application.

I have attached the image which tells how and where input is to be given.

if monday

friday's date(mm/dd/yy) 09:30 today's date(mm.dd/yy) 09:30

else

previousdate(mm/dd/yy) 09:30 today's date(mm/dd/yy) 09:30

here the time remains constant.

After send("!vc")

filter window will open

send ("{tab 5}"}

where the cursor will be placed. I have to enter the value.

For Example (today)

04/06/09 09:30 send tab will take to another box where i have to enter 04/07/09 09:30

Thanks in Advance

$sRange = $iDay & "/" & $iMon & "/" & StringRight($iYear, 2) & " - "
_DayValueToDate($iToday, $iYear, $iMon, $iDay)
$sRange &= $iDay & "/" & $iMon & "/" & StringRight($iYear, 2)

ConsoleWrite($sRange & @CRLF)

venkat,

Try this:

#Include <Date.au3>

Global $iYear, $iMon, $iDay

$iToday = _DateToDayValue(@YEAR, @MON, @MDAY)

If @WDAY = 2 Then
; Today is Monday
    $iStart = $iToday - 3
Else
; Today is not Monday
    $iStart = $iToday - 1
EndIf

_DayValueToDate($iStart, $iYear, $iMon, $iDay)
$sDate1 = $iDay & "/" & $iMon & "/" & StringRight($iYear, 2) & " 09:30"
_DayValueToDate($iToday, $iYear, $iMon, $iDay)
$sDate2 = $iDay & "/" & $iMon & "/" & StringRight($iYear, 2) & " 09:30"

ConsoleWrite($sDate1 & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($sDate2 & @CRLF)

So just send these 2 strings and you should be set.

By the way, a slightly belated welcome to the AutoIt forums.
