Overview

Reminder

WINDEV, WINDEV Mobile and WEBDEV propose two types of masks:
  • the input masks that define the characters that can be typed in the controls found in a window or in a page. Sometimes, these masks can also be used to modify the case (uppercase/lowercase characters) of the values assigned to the window controls or to the page controls by programming.
  • the display masks that define the characters that can be:
    • printed in the report controls.
Default mask
By default, when creating a Date control:
  • the "Date defined by the project" input mask is selected: the information defined in the parameters for managing the dates for the project is automatically taken into account. Reminder: These parameters are defined for each language in the "Languages" tab of project description:
    1. On the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, click "Description".
    2. Select the "Languages" tab then the "Date" tab.
    3. The format used corresponds to:
      • the parameters of the operating system,
      • the specified parameters (with the defined days and months).
Remarks:
  • In a report, when creating a preset Date control, the wizard allows you to select the display format of the control.
  • A list of preset masks is proposed in the description window of the control. You can:
    • select a preset mask.
    • create a custom mask.
The preset masks
The following masks are proposed (in the order in which they appear in the window editor, page editor or report editor):
  • the date defined by the project. The date defined by the project depends on the date format selected in the parameters of the project language ("Project .. Project description", "Language" tab, linguistic options about the date).
  • 'DD/MM/YYYY' ("01/02/1979" for example)
  • 'DD/MM/YY' ("01/02/79" for example)
  • Versions 16 and later
    'DDD DD' ("Tue 15" for example)
    New in version 16
    'DDD DD' ("Tue 15" for example)
    'DDD DD' ("Tue 15" for example)
  • 'MM/DD/YYYY' ("02/01/1979" for example)
  • 'MM/DD/YY' ("02/01/79" for example)
  • 'YYYY/MM/DD' ("1979/02/01" for example)
  • 'YY/MM/DD' ("79/02/01" for example)
  • 'DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm:SS' ("01/02/1979 21:35:15" for example)
  • 'MM/DD/YYYY HH:mm:SS' ("02/01/1979 21:35:15" for example)
  • 'DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm:SS:CC' ("01/02/1979 21:35:15:10" for example)
  • 'MM/DD/AAAA HH:mm:SS:CC' ("02/01/1979 21:35:15:10" for example)
  • 'DDDD DD MMMM YYYY' ("Thursday 01 february 1979" for example)
  • Versions 16 and later
    'Dddd DD Mmmm YYYY' ("Tuesday 13 June 2000" for example)
    New in version 16
    'Dddd DD Mmmm YYYY' ("Tuesday 13 June 2000" for example)
    'Dddd DD Mmmm YYYY' ("Tuesday 13 June 2000" for example)
  • Versions 16 and later
    'Dddd DD Mmm YYYY' ("Saturday 01 Dec 2001" for example)
    New in version 16
    'Dddd DD Mmm YYYY' ("Saturday 01 Dec 2001" for example)
    'Dddd DD Mmm YYYY' ("Saturday 01 Dec 2001" for example)
Additional masks are available in WINDEV and WEBDEV:
