"Created Date" as XY Variable

Post by Lare2 »

Today I decided to give a try to the scripting feature of XYplorer. But couldn't do it because, to my surprise, the Created Date variable wasn't available for use. :(

I'm reading the XY Variables wiki page and only see the following two.

Code: Select all

<myyyymmdd_hhnnss> 
    Modified date/time of the currently focused & selected List item 
<dyyyymmdd_hhnnss> 
    Current date/time
Am I missing something or this one is not available at all. :shock:

Your shock is okay. It's missing. I curse the day when I decided to call them <myyyymmdd_hhnnss> and <dyyyymmdd_hhnnss> ... stupid! Should I go on now with <cyyyymmdd_hhnnss> ... naaah... it should be something like this:

<datem yyyymmdd_hhnnss>
<datec yyyymmdd_hhnnss>
<datea yyyymmdd_hhnnss>


I will add this in v7.10...

Is there a good reason why current date can't simply be "date" or maybe "dates" for 'system'?
Since 'datec' could be thought of as current date or created date...
Still spending WAY TOO much time here! But it's such a pleasure helping XY be a treasure!
(XP on laptop with touchpad and thus NO mouse!) Using latest beta vers when possible.

I was not talking about current date, but of course you are right:
<date yyyymmdd_hhnnss> will be it.

PS: I will keep the old formats for backward compatibility, of course.

Was this added ?

Was reading the wiki again and still only mentions:
<myyyymmdd_hhnnss>
Modified date/time of the currently focused & selected List item
<dyyyymmdd_hhnnss>
Current date/time
If so what is the variable ?


TIA

Don't worry. I just wanted to know if it was there or not.

Just stopped to say Thank You.

As usually you exceeded the original suggestion by adding more than requested. :)

I'm pretty sure the new variables will be of great use to others as well.


Code: Select all

+ New variables that can be used in User-Defined Commands and
      Scripting:
        <date yyyymmdd_hhnnss>      : date now
        <datem yyyymmdd_hhnnss>     : modified date of current item
        <datec yyyymmdd_hhnnss>     : created date of current item
        <datea yyyymmdd_hhnnss>     : accessed date of current item
        <srcdatem yyyymmdd_hhnnss>  : modified date of source item
        <srcdatec yyyymmdd_hhnnss>  : created date of source item
        <srcdatea yyyymmdd_hhnnss>  : accessed date of source item
