DTP - Simplify Coding Help Required

2 posts in this topic

Hello All,

The Date-Time-Picker has me stumped once again. Two DTP on a form. When DTP1 is changed, I want to automatically change DTP2 to the DTP1's date. Well, it is working but I coded it just to get it to work and it appears as a kludge. Now I need someone with more knowledge to reduce the coding, make it more efficient or show me a differnet way of doing things.

It seems that I have to change the format style of DTP1 to "yyyy-MM-dd", then do a GUICtrlSetData(DTP2,GUICtrlRead(DTP1)), just to get it to work, then change DTP1 style back to "ddd - MM/dd/yy" (for display purposes).

There is a lot of format setting required doing it my way. I'd like to do something like GUICtrlSetData(DTP2,GUICtrlRead(DTP1),"yyyy-MM-dd") if possible.

CODE
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <GuiDateTimePicker.au3>

#Include <Date.au3>

Local $GUI, $Btn_COLORREF, $Btn_BGR, $Btn_RGB, $iMemo

Dim $DTN_FIRST = -760

Dim $DateStyle = "ddd - MM/dd/yy"

Dim $NameStyle = "yyMMdd"

Dim $SetDateData = "yyyy-MM-dd"

Dim $DispDate = ""

Dim $wrkDate = ""

Global Const $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032

Global $fFlag = False, $aTime[8]

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\ReportSetupApp\frm098002.kxf

$frm098002 = GUICreate("Test of Date Params", 646, 209, 195, 124)

$btnExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 528, 144, 65, 33)

$Group2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Date Parameters", 24, 32, 593, 89)

$Date1F = GUICtrlCreateDate("2009/05/14 10:04:35", 113, 74, 161, 25)

$Date1T = GUICtrlCreateDate("2009/05/14 10:04:35", 281, 74, 161, 25)

$Date1Name = GUICtrlCreateInput("DispDate", 457, 74, 137, 21)

;$DateWork = GUICtrlCreateDate("2009/11/22 10:04:35", 113, 110, 161, 25)

$Label13 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("---- From Date ----", 140, 55, 83, 17)

$Label14 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("---- Thru Date ----", 311, 55, 82, 17)

$Label15 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("---- File Date ----", 477, 55, 78, 17)

GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

;Set Initial Styles and Formats for GUI Form

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1F, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $DateStyle)

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1T, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $DateStyle)

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1F, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $NameStyle)

GUICtrlSetData($Date1Name, GUICtrlRead($Date1F))

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1F, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $DateStyle)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "MY_WM_NOTIFY")

$Date1_State = GUICtrlRead($Date1F)

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

dim $nMsg = ""

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $nMsg = $btnExit

Exit

EndSelect

If GUICtrlRead($Date1F) <> $Date1_State Then

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1F, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $NameStyle)

GUICtrlSetData($Date1Name, GUICtrlRead($Date1F))

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1F, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $SetDateData)

GUICtrlSetData($Date1T,GUICtrlRead($Date1F))

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1T, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $DateStyle)

GUICtrlSendMsg($Date1F, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $DateStyle)

$Date1_State = GUICtrlRead($Date1F)

Endif

WEnd

Func MY_WM_NOTIFY($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 0)

#forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam

Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode, $tNMHDR, $tBuffer, $tBuffer2

$tNMHDR = DllStructCreate($tagNMHDR, $ilParam)

$hWndFrom = HWnd(DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "hWndFrom"))

$iIDFrom = DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "IDFrom")

$iCode = DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, "Code")

Switch $hWndFrom

Case $iCode

Switch $iCode

Case $DTN_DATETIMECHANGE; Sent by a date and time picker (DTP) control whenever a change occurs

$tInfo = DllStructCreate($tagNMDATETIMECHANGE, $ilParam)

$aTime = _Date_Time_SystemTimeToArray($tInfo)

$fFlag = True

Return 0

EndSwitch

EndSwitch

Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG

EndFunc ;==>MY_WM_NOTIFY

I was thinking about a hidden DTP that I could change the formats without affecting the window contents ....but.... there must be a better way.

Show me the way,
