As you can tell these are my messed up functions that convert dates into seconds and vice-versa. They're a little disorganised but they're the ones I copy and paste to my scripts then modify.

In it's straightforward form
FormatTime( TimeString, Format )
     FormatTime, FormattedTime , TimeString, %Format% 
     return Formattedtime
  1.  FormatTime( TimeString, Format ) 
  2.  { 
  3.       FormatTime, FormattedTime , TimeString, %Format% 
  4.       return Formattedtime 
  5.  }

Just a quick note as I use this function in various scripts. This adds the 1000th separator comma:

    	FormatAddCommas(val) {
    		StringLen, OutputVar, Result
    		NumLoop := (OutputVar // 3)
    		DNum = 3
    		Loop, % (NumLoop+1)
    		   StringReplace, Result, Result, %Digit%,`,%Digit%
    		   DNum += 4
    		StringLen, OutputVar, Result
    		Loop, %OutputVar%
    			FirstChar:=Substr(Result, 1, 1)
    			IfEqual, FirstChar, `,
    				Result:=Substr(Result, 2)
    			} else {
    		Return Result

What's this all about? Well I want the basic hover effect: when my mouse cursor hovers over a link, I want that link to turn blue and display an underline. When I move the cursor away from the link, I want the link returned to black without an underline.


Apologies for copying this from another source but with lots of OpenSource developers disappearing and reappearing, the content is what I don't want to lose.

Just a quick note for the moment on how to use ternary operators in AutoHotkey.  A ternary operator for those who are unfamiliar with this is an "If...Then...Else..." statement written in a small amount of code, usually on one line, and exists in most programming languages.

For Example, the statement:


If (ThisCondition = true)
  1.  If (ThisCondition = true) 
  2.      ThisVar:=1 
  3.  Else 
  4.      ThisVar:=2 

Converted to Ternary this would look like:

ThisVar:=(ThisCondition = true) ? 1 : 2
  1.  ThisVar:=(ThisCondition = true) ? 1 : 2 
I'll add as there are a whole bunch of methods using the Ternary Operator in AutoHotkey (discussed on which I'll put in soon. I just needed something on my site now as I find myself looking for this bit of info every now and again.

 In this case, I want to display the current month with today highlighted.  As I was trying to get my head round writing this in a program using the qHTM.dll (to include HTML in an autohotkey GUI), the calendar will be in a HTML-autohotkey mixed code.  Obviously just omit the HTML rubbish if you want to create a calendar using just autohotkey syntax.

Actually, the following code is an excerpt from my program which checks an online server (for IT Events during this month) and if it can't download the calendar, it had to display an offline version in the GUI.  To display the following code in this website though, I've had to omit a lot of the HTML part.
