Hi Team,

I tried to create / set a dynamic date value in calendar using prompt. But it is not taking up. Can you help me out? Below is the code


-SET &STARTDATE_YYMD = DATECVT(DATEADD(DATECVT(&YYMD, 'I8YYMD', 'YYMD'), 'M', '-1'), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &STARTDATE_MONTH = LCWORD(10, CHGDAT('YYMD','MX', &STARTDATE_YYMD, 'A10'), 'A10');
-SET &STARTDATE_DAY = CHGDAT('YYMD','DX', &STARTDATE_YYMD, 'A2');
-SET &STARTDATE_YEAR = CHGDAT('YYMD','YYX', &STARTDATE_YYMD, 'A4');
-SET &STDT = TRUNCATE(&STARTDATE_MONTH) | ' ' | TRUNCATE(&STARTDATE_DAY) | ' ' | TRUNCATE(&STARTDATE_YEAR);

-SET &ENDDATE_YYMD = DATECVT(DATEADD(DATECVT(&YYMD, 'I8YYMD', 'YYMD'), 'D', '0'), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &ENDDATE_MONTH = LCWORD(10, CHGDAT('YYMD','MX', &ENDDATE_YYMD, 'A10'), 'A10');
-SET &ENDDATE_DAY = CHGDAT('YYMD','DX', &ENDDATE_YYMD, 'A2');
-SET &ENDDATE_YEAR = CHGDAT('YYMD','YYX', &ENDDATE_YYMD, 'A4');
-SET &ENDDT = TRUNCATE(&ENDDATE_MONTH) | ' ' | TRUNCATE(&ENDDATE_DAY) | ' ' | TRUNCATE(&ENDDATE_YEAR);

-TYPE STARTDATE_YYMD &STARTDATE_YYMD
-TYPE STARTDATE_MONTH &STARTDATE_MONTH
-TYPE STARTDATE_DAY &STARTDATE_DAY
-TYPE STARTDATE_YEAR &STARTDATE_YEAR
-TYPE STDT &STDT

-TYPE ENDDATE_YYMD &ENDDATE_YYMD
-TYPE ENDDATE_MONTH &ENDDATE_MONTH
-TYPE ENDDATE_DAY &ENDDATE_DAY
-TYPE ENDDATE_YEAR &ENDDATE_YEAR
-TYPE ENDDT &ENDDT

-*-DEFAULT &STARTDATE='March 18 2018';
-*-DEFAULT &ENDDATE='April 17 2019';
-DEFAULT &STARTDATE = '&STDT.EVAL';
-DEFAULT &ENDDATE = '&ENDDT.EVAL';
PROMPT &STARTDATE.(|FORMAT=MDYY).StartDate:.QUOTEDSTRING;
-PROMPT &ENDDATE.(|FORMAT=MDYY).EndDate:.QUOTEDSTRING;


When you provide as a static value it is working however for dynamic it is not showing the value which calculated.

Below is the reference URL:

Calendar Control
The calendar control will display for parameters that are simple filters for a field that is a combination of YYMD date format with any of the supported modifiers. The date format must have all components (year, month, day). Date-Time field formats are not supported.

Responsive Autoprompt calendar control with default date
Note:

he default value is the current date.
The default value can be specified with an English month, two-digit day, and four-digit year. For example:
-DEFAULT &STARTDATE='January 01 2016';

Do a search on "DEFAULT DYNAMIC VALUE" and you wil find that this has been discussed (many times) before.

Hi Tony,
Thanks for the information. I could not find the solution for my query.

In 8.2.06 when you are creating the html page with App Studio if you click on the calendar control and choose the settings tab, select Dynamic / Other and there is a check box for current start date. Select that and it will make that the default date when the page is run.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Hi Chuck,

I am trying to populate or design the calendar control in Page Designer using PROMPT with dynamic values.
For that I am using the code (in my initial thread) to create dynamic date values.

When we provide the static value as below it is showing the correct values in Calendar control
-DEFAULT &STARTDATE='March 18 2018';

However, when I calculate the same dynamically using WebFOCUS SET command, it is populating the current date.

For the default set of date value in PROMPT to create a calendar control I refer the below URL.

Below is the reference URL:
https://webfocusinfocenter.inf...d9-9726-FC3291EDC48F

Kindly let me know if any queries.

Thanks
Subbu

The link below is a post that describes how to get Designer to do the prompting. The last entry by Michele Brady has two other links with more information.
