Getting Maximum Date Range in MonthCalendar Controls in Desktop Windows Applications

Applies to TestComplete 15.46, last modified on December 01, 2022

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.

If a MonthCalendar control supports multi-selection you can select a range of dates in the control. To obtain the maximum number of days in this date range use the wMaxDateRange property of the Win32MonthCalendar object. During the test run this object is automatically associated with MonthCalendar controls whose class names are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options. The wMaxDateRange property returns maximum number of days in the range that can be selected in the MonthCalendar control.

Below is an example that demonstrates how you can use wMaxDateRange to obtain the maximum date range (in days) that can be selected in the MonthCalendar control:

JavaScript, JScript

function main()
{
  var MonthCalendar;
    
  // Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar = Sys.Process("Project1").Window("TForm1", "Form1").Window("TMonthCalendar");
    
  // Get the maximum date range (in days) that can be selected
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMaxDateRange);
}

Python

def Main():
    
  # Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar = Sys.Process("Project1").Window("TForm1", "Form1").Window("TMonthCalendar")
    
  # Get the maximum date range (in days) that can be selected 
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMaxDateRange)

VBScript

Sub main
  Dim MonthCalendar
    
  ' Obtain the MonthCalendar control
  set MonthCalendar= Sys.Process("Project1").Window("TForm1", "Form1").Window("TMonthCalendar")
     
  ' Get the maximum date range (in days) that can be selected
  Log.Message MonthCalendar.wMaxDateRange
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure main;
var MonthCalendar;
begin
  
  // Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar := Sys.Process('Project1').Window('TForm1', 'Form1').Window('TMonthCalendar');
     
  // Get the maximum date range (in days) that can be selected
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar.wMaxDateRange);
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function main()
{
  var MonthCalendar;
    
  // Obtain the DateTimePicker control
  MonthCalendar= Sys["Process"]("Project1")["Window"]("TForm1", "Form1")["Window"]("TMonthCalendar");
    
  // Get the maximum date range (in days) that can be selected
  Log.Message(MonthCalendar["wMaxDateRange"]);
}
