SysDateTimePick32 in standard English language
#1
I understand that using a statement like :
SendMessage(id(3 hDlg) DTM_SETFORMAT 0 "dd-MMM-yy")

you may format a SysDateTimePick32 control accordingly.

However, I envisage the language problem! The string is displayed in my native language format. I would kindly ask for any advice to display it in standard English. Many thanks in advance.

From quickly trying a few things i wasn't able to change the actual calendar to english but i was able to change the editable part to english 
if your worried about language just convert the date to english couple examples below

Function Dialogdatepick1 
Code:
Select All      Help
str dd=
;BEGIN DIALOG
;0 "" 0x90C80AC8 0x0 0 0 224 136 "Dialog"
;3 SysDateTimePick32 0x56030010 0x0 28 28 96 13 ""
;4 Static 0x54000001 0x0 28 12 94 14 "Date in English"
;1 Button 0x54030001 0x4 116 116 48 14 "OK"
;2 Button 0x54030000 0x4 168 116 48 14 "Cancel"
;END DIALOG
;DIALOG EDITOR: "" 0x2040700 "*" "" "" ""

if(!ShowDialog(dd &sub.DlgProc 0)) ret


#sub DlgProc
function# hDlg message wParam lParam

sel message
,case WM_INITDIALOG
,SendMessage(id(3 hDlg) DTM_SETFORMAT 0 "dd-MMM-yy")
,case WM_DESTROY
,case WM_COMMAND goto messages2
,case WM_NOTIFY goto messages3
ret
;messages2
sel wParam
,case IDOK
,case IDCANCEL
ret 1
;messages3
NMHDR* nh=+lParam
;sel nh.idFrom
,;case 3
sel nh.code
,case DTN_DATETIMECHANGE
,NMDATETIMECHANGE* p=+nh
,if p.dwFlags=GDT_VALID
,,DateTime dt
,,dt.FromSYSTEMTIME(p.st)
,,_s.timeformat("{dd-MMM-yy}" dt  WINAPI.LANG_ENGLISH|WINAPI.SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US)
,,_s.setwintext(id(4 hDlg))
,else out "empty"
 and changing editable part of datepicker
Function Dialogdatepick2 
Code:
Select All      Help
str dd=
;BEGIN DIALOG
;0 "" 0x90C80AC8 0x0 0 0 224 136 "Dialog"
;3 SysDateTimePick32 0x56030010 0x0 28 28 96 13 ""

;END DIALOG

if(!ShowDialog(dd &sub.DlgProc 0)) ret


#sub DlgProc
function# hDlg message wParam lParam

sel message
,case WM_INITDIALOG
,_s.timeformat("{dd-MMM-yy}" 0  WINAPI.LANG_ENGLISH|WINAPI.SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US)
,SendMessage(id(3 hDlg) DTM_SETFORMAT 0 _s)
,case WM_DESTROY
,case WM_COMMAND goto messages2
,case WM_NOTIFY goto messages3
ret
;messages2
sel wParam
,case IDOK
,case IDCANCEL
ret 1
;messages3
NMHDR* nh=+lParam
;sel nh.idFrom
,;case 3
sel nh.code
,case DTN_DATETIMECHANGE
,NMDATETIMECHANGE* p=+nh
,if p.dwFlags=GDT_VALID
,,DateTime dt
,,dt.FromSYSTEMTIME(p.st)
,,_s.timeformat("{dd-MMM-yy}" dt  WINAPI.LANG_ENGLISH|WINAPI.SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US)
,,_s.setwintext(id(4 hDlg))
,,SendMessage(id(3 hDlg) DTM_SETFORMAT 0 _s)
,else out "empty"

or can just convert it and not display the conversion

Code:

NMHDR* nh=+lParam
sel nh.idFrom
,case 3
,sel nh.code
,,case DTN_DATETIMECHANGE
,,NMDATETIMECHANGE* p=+nh
,,if p.dwFlags=GDT_VALID
,,,DateTime dt
,,,dt.FromSYSTEMTIME(p.st)
,,,_s.timeformat("{dd-MMM-yy}" dt  WINAPI.LANG_ENGLISH|WINAPI.SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US)
,,else out "empty"

Dear Kevin, many thanks indeed for these two very smart solutions! Best regards.

Dialogdatepick2 does not display correct month in english, if month is 03,05,10 (march,may,october) in control 3. I am investigating it.
#4
yeah didn't test that one fully.I have tested it now and March,May,August, and October don't display correctly. was just a quick thought and wasn't fully tested. but the static control displays the correct month always in my tests

Thanks, I agree absolutely with your findings.
