    Retrieving the day,month and year from the Date Editor

    hii all...
    can anyone tell how to retrieve the day, month and year from what is entered in the Date Editor? we want to retrieve the day, month and year from the editor and store them separately in the database in 3 separate columns. How do we go about this?
    Thank u!

    Re: Retrieving the day,month and year from the Date Editor

    You retrieve the time value encoded in a TTime object using editor's Date() method. Then you convert that object into a TDateTime object by calling its DateTime() and use the new object to extract the data you need for your database.

    Obviously this is a Symbian C++ type of question, has nothing to do with Carbide.c++ or its UI Designer aside from understanding that the editor class it uses is CEikDateEditor.

    Check this: Querying Date and Time

    Also check this: Retrieve the number of the current week in the year

    Finally search for the TTime in the SDK help.

    Re: Retrieving the day,month and year from the Date Editor

    Hi,
    here is part of the code I use in my own app. My settingslist is created by Carbide UI, and the call is to be found in the file with the shortest file name:

    Code:
    void CLocaNoteFilterSettings::SaveSettingValuesL()
    	{
    	// store values from iSettings
    	CLocaNoteAppUi* temp=static_cast<CLocaNoteAppUi*>(CEikonEnv::Static()->EikAppUi());
    	TDateTime val1, val2;
    	
    	temp->iPrefs->FilterNote=(LocaNotePrefFilterNote)iSettings.CmbCreateOrEdit();
    	
    	val1=iSettings.CmdFilterFromDate().DateTime();
    	val2=iSettings.CmdFilterFromTime().DateTime();
    	val1.SetHour(val2.Hour());
    	val1.SetMinute(val2.Minute());
    	val1.SetSecond(val2.Second());
    	temp->iPrefs->FilterFromDateTime=val1;
    	
    	val1=iSettings.CmbFilterToDate().DateTime();
    	val2=iSettings.CmbFilterToTime().DateTime();
    	val1.SetHour(val2.Hour());
    	val1.SetMinute(val2.Minute());
    	val1.SetSecond(val2.Second());
    	temp->iPrefs->FilterToDateTime=val1;	
    	}
    The lines above are the best I have to offer.If anyone of you is of more advanced knowledge, I ask for your patience and understanding! - unknown arab poet
