    DT questions

    Hi.

    I'm having trouble with one or two of the date functions so I wonder if someone can point me in the right direction please? I'll use the following code to illustrate:

    [code=thinbasic]uses "ui", "dt"

    dim hwnd, msg, wparam, lparam as dword
    dim strTimeAdjust as string

    dialog new 0, "Time test", - 1, - 1, 260, 90, %ws_sysmenu, 0 to hwnd
    control add frame, hwnd, 1, "Adjust time", 5, 5, 125, 60
    control add button, hwnd, 2, "Hours +", 15, 17, 50, 17
    control add button, hwnd, 3, "Hours -", 15, 40, 50, 17
    control add button, hwnd, 4, "Minutes +", 70, 17, 50, 17
    control add button, hwnd, 5, "Minutes -", 70, 40, 50, 17
    control add label, hwnd, 6, "Current time", 140, 18, 50, 12, %ss_center
    control add label, hwnd, 7, Dt_Timeformat(,"hh.mm"), 205, 18, 40, 12, %ss_left
    control add label, hwnd, 8, "Adjusted time", 140, 35, 50, 12, %ss_center
    control add label, hwnd, 9, Dt_Timeformat(Dt_GetTime(),"hh.mm"), 205, 35, 40, 12, %ss_left
    dialog show modeless hwnd

    while iswindow( hwnd )

    msg = getmessage( hwnd, wparam, lparam )
    control set text hwnd, 7, Dt_Timeformat(,"hh.mm")

    select case msg
    case %wm_syscommand
    if wparam = %sc_close then
    exit while
    end if
    case %wm_command
    select case wparam
    case 2
    control get text hwnd, 9 to strTimeAdjust
    control set text hwnd, 9, dt_timeaddseconds( strTimeAdjust, %dt_seconds_in_hour )
    case 3
    control get text hwnd, 9 to strTimeAdjust
    control set text hwnd, 9, dt_timesubseconds( strTimeAdjust, %dt_seconds_in_hour )
    case 4
    control get text hwnd, 9 to strTimeAdjust
    control set text hwnd, 9, dt_timeaddseconds( strTimeAdjust, %dt_seconds_in_minute )
    case 5
    control get text hwnd, 9 to strTimeAdjust
    control set text hwnd, 9, dt_timesubseconds( strTimeAdjust, %dt_seconds_in_minute )
    end select
    end select
    wend

    dialog end hwnd[/code]

    1) control add label, hwnd, 7, Dt_Timeformat(,"hh.mm"), 205, 18, 40, 12, %ss_left

    This still shows the seconds even though I have specified "hh.mm". I have tried "'hh'.'mm'" but I get the same result. BTW I am aware that this value gets updated later in the code but I get the same result.

    2) control add label, hwnd, 9, Dt_Timeformat(Dt_GetTime(),"hh.mm"), 205, 35, 40, 12, %ss_left

    This gives me the format I want but the wrong time. Instead of 17.00 I got 06.00.

    3) The hours and minutes can be adjusted forward but not backwards after 00:00. The minutes work backwards after the hour except if the hour is 00:00. I am aware that this changes the formatting of the date, but I am just illustrating what is happening.

    Sorry if I'm missing something obvious. Thanks.

    Re: DT questions

    Hi Dave.

    I've moved this post into DT specific module.
    I confirm there are some problems. Roberto will have a look asap.

    Re: DT questions

    Hi Dave,

    I changed both DT_GetTime() and DT_FormatTime() adding a flag that change the behaviour of these function.

    Here is a summary for the new flags use:

    %DT_GETLOCALTIME Used by DT_GetTime() Retrieves the current local date and time.This is the dafault value
    %DT_GETSYSTEMTIME Used by DT_GetTime() Retrieves the current system date and time.The system time is expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
    %DT_NOMINUTESORSECONDS Used by DT_FormatTime() Do not use minutes or seconds.
    %DT_NOSECONDS Used by DT_FormatTime() Do not use seconds.
    %DT_NOTIMEMARKER Used by DT_FormatTime() Do not use a time marker.
    %DT_FORCE24HOURFORMAT Used by DT_FormatTime() Always use a 24-hour time format.

    Also changed the DT_MILLISECTOTIME() and DT_TIMETOMILLISEC() functions in order to fix a bug with milliseconds discovered by Eros.

    As usual you'll find these update in the next ThinBasic release.

    [code=thinbasic]uses "dt"

    msgbox 0, DT_MILLISECTOTIME(DT_TIMETOMILLISEC("08:12:24.003"))

    msgbox 0, "Local Time:" + $TAB + DT_GetTime(%DT_GETLOCALTIME) + $CRLF + "System Time:" + $TAB + DT_GetTime(%DT_GETSYSTEMTIME)

    msgbox 0, "Default to local time:" + $TAB + DT_GetTime()

    msgbox 0, Dt_Timeformat(,"hh.mm", %DT_NOSECONDS)
    [/code]

    Regards,
    Roberto

    Re: DT questions

    Hi Dave.

    Roberto sent me an updated version of DT module.
    Please find here attached thinBasic_DT.dll
    Copy it into \thinBasic\Lib\ directory replacing your current one.

    Also here a modified version of your script using new functionalities and fixes.

    Ciao
    Eros

    Re: DT questions

    A note:

    to force 24 hours format you can do in the following either ways:

    [code=thinbasic]Dt_Timeformat(strTimeAdjust,"hh.mm", %DT_FORCE24HOURFORMAT)[/code]
    [code=thinbasic]Dt_Timeformat(strTimeAdjust,"HH.mm") '---HH capital[/code]

    Hi Eros / Roberto.

    I'm surprised and impressed with how fast you've been able to make these changes. I really didn't expect it to be done so soon.

    Thank you both very much.
