How to automatically input date to an application using macro (newbie)


Recommended Posts

So I want to create a macro that when I click the desired activation key, it will automatically fill in with the updated date. I was trying to use this codes

<DATE/TIME Format="mm/dd/yyyy" Flags="\xB3" Date="29/03/2017 10:13:13" Day_Offset="0" Month_Offset="0" Year_Offset="0" Hour_Offset="0" Minute_Offset="0" Second_Offset="0" Prompt="Enter the original date and time." Left="Center" Top="Center" Monitor="0" Variable="%dtDateTime%" IsDateVar="TRUE"/>

 however it just gives me a drop down box. What codes should I use. A little help please, a newbie here wanting to learn :) . thanks

Here is my project

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<TAB>"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<SHIFT>P<TAB>"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<SHIFT>P<TAB>"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<SHIFT>F<TAB>"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<SHIFT>F<SHIFT><ARROW DOWN><TAB>"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<SHIFT>P<TAB>"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<00>"/>  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this should be the month

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<00>"/> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this should be the day for the next day

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<00>"/> =================== this should be the year

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="9999999999"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<00>"/> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this should be the month

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<00>"/> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this should be the date today

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<00>"/> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this should be the year

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<TAB>"/>

<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<TAB>"/>

<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="0.05"/>

and the box for the date today.

As I said. Simply use the Date/Time command. You need separate commands for the date parts. So if I was going to fill the month for today, I would choose the option "Set it to the current Date/time on the Date/Time tab, then choose Type the date/time stamp out in the Operation tab using the format "mm". This will type "12". If I set the format to "d" it types "6". If you want "06" then use "dd".
