Getting Minimum and Maximum Allowed MonthCalendar Dates

Applies to TestComplete 14.74, last modified on March 01, 2021

While testing MonthCalendar controls, you can use specific properties and methods of the corresponding program object to perform certain actions and obtain data stored in controls. You can call these methods and properties from your keyword tests, as well as from scripts. This topic describes how to work with the needed properties and methods from your scripts. However, when testing a control from your keyword test, you can use the same methods and properties calling them from keyword test operations. For more information, see Keyword Tests Basic Operations.

To get the minimum and the maximum dates, which can be selected in the MonthCalendar control, use the wMinDate and wMaxDate properties of the Win32MonthCalendar object. TestComplete associates this object with all MonthCalendar controls whose class names are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options. The wMinDate and wMaxDate properties return the minimum and the maximum dates that can be set in the MonthCalendar control.

The date, which you set using the wDate and wEndDate properties or the SetSelection action, should be greater than wMin and less than wMax, otherwise it will not be set.

The following example demonstrates how you can use these properties:

JavaScript, JScript

function main()
{
  var MonthCalendar;
    
  // Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar= Sys.Process("Project1").Window("TForm1", "Form1").Window("TMonthCalendar");
    
  // Get the minimum and the maximum date
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMinDate);
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMaxDate);
}

Python

def Main():
    
  # Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar= Sys.Process("Project1").Window("TForm1", "Form1").Window("TMonthCalendar")
    
  # Get the minimum and the maximum date
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMinDate)
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMaxDate)

VBScript

Sub main
  Dim MonthCalendar
    
  ' Obtain the MonthCalendar control
  Set MonthCalendar= Sys.Process("Project1").Window("TForm1", "Form1").Window("TMonthCalendar")
     
  ' Get the minimum and the maximum date
  Log.Message MonthCalendar.wMinDate
  Log.Message MonthCalendar.wMaxDate
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure main;
var MonthCalendar;
begin
  
  // Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar:= Sys.Process('Project1').Window('TForm1', 'Form1').Window('TMonthCalendar');
     
  // Get the minimum and the maximum date
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMinDate);
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMaxDate);
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function main()
{
  var MonthCalendar;
    
  // Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar= Sys["Process"]("Project1")["Window"]("TForm1", "Form1")["Window"]("TMonthCalendar");
    
  // Get the minimum and the maximum date
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar["wMinDate"]);
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar["wMaxDate"]);
}
