    Re: Verify DateFormat(MM/DD/YYYY)

    Thanks Mr Godknows...
    but Iam unable to understand your code..see your logic below.

    sText = "mm/dd/yy"
    size = len(sText) // Size = 8
    if((size - 7)==2) // if((8-7)==2) false
    Print("mm/dd/yy") // goes to else
    if((size-7)==4) // if((8-7)==4) false
    print("mm/dd/yy") // goes to else since the condition failed here too.

    Can you please explain me how the above logic works for "mm/dd/yyyy".

    Re: Verify DateFormat(MM/DD/YYYY)

    You could do the following

    sDate = mm/dd/yy

    if Len(GetField(sDate,"/",3)) == 2
    // format is mm/dd/yy
    else
    // format is mm/dd/yyyy

    Verify DateFormat(MM/DD/YYYY)

    Hi,

    I hope someone would help me.

    I have an expected value in the format MM/DD/YYYY, by using Silk how can I verify this format whether it is in MM/DD/YY or MM/DD/YYYY. Is there any builtin format function available in Silk?

    Many thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    Re: Verify DateFormat(MM/DD/YYYY)

    Hi Satya
    A slight modification to GodKnows code for DateFormat.
    Use code like this

    [ ] STRING sText = "mm/dd/yyyy"
    [ ] INTEGER Size= len(sText)
    [-] if((Size-6)==2)
    [ ] print("mm/dd/yy")
    [-] else
    [ ] print("mm/dd/yyyy")
    Thanks

    Re: Verify DateFormat(MM/DD/YYYY)

    Basically:

    1)get the length of your time string
    2)get the length of your string until the character before the year character (yy or yyyy)
    3)get the difference between 1) and 2)
    4)then check if the string is mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy


    To kilarup: You cannot use 'else' because you assume that anything else is mm/dd/yyyy.
    Although my reasoning is similarly flawed
    it should work.
    Hope this helps.

    Try the SilkTest built in function ParseDateFormat
