Input Filter - Allow Only Date ##/##/####

Recommended Posts

KenNichols

I want to filter an input to Only allow dates to be entered. 2 digit month, 2 digit day and 4 digit year(##/##/####). This is what I have so far.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

;I Modified some of Melba23's code

$Frm = GUICreate("Input Filter", 300, 30, -1, -1)
Global $inTest = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 5, 290)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "MY_WM_COMMAND")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "")

Func MY_WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    Local $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF);LoWord
    Local $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16)   ;HiWord

    If $iIDFrom = $inTest And $iCode = $EN_CHANGE Then

    $Read_Input = GUICtrlRead($inTest)
    $Read_Input1 = ""
    If StringRegExp($Read_Input, '[^\d/]') Then $Read_Input = StringRegExpReplace($Read_Input, '[^\d/]', '\1')
    $Point1 = StringInStr($Read_Input, "/", 2, 2)
    $Point2 = StringInStr($Read_Input, "/", 2, 3)
    If $Point1 <> 0 Then $Read_Input = StringLeft($Read_Input, $Point1 + 4)
    If $Point2 <> 0 Then $Read_Input = StringLeft($Read_Input, $Point2 - 1)
    GUICtrlSetData($inTest, $Read_Input1 & $Read_Input)
    EndIf

EndFunc;==>_WM_COMMAND

$Frm = GUICreate("Input Filter", 300, 30, -1, -1)
Global $date = GUICtrlCreateDate("", 5, 5, 290)

; to select a specific default format
    $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032
    $style = "MM/dd/yyyy"
    GUICtrlSendMsg($date, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, $style)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd


MsgBox(0, "Time", GUICtrlRead($date))

I like that even better! More GUI the better! Thanks!

Cut down one of the regex's

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.

Very well done my man. How long will it take you to make it work in different locales?

How would I change the default start date?

GUICtrlSetData($date,"01/01/2009") doesn't work.
