set values for picker.date ?
Searched the docs and forums but can’t seem to find this. Any help on how to set a ui date picker to a particular value, rather than the current time as it’s displaying in my code at the moment. For example, 8am tomorrow.
Hope this helps..
# sets date time picker # you can get details of different parameters from strftime.org import datetime, ui date_picker = ui.DatePicker(bg_color=1) date_picker.mode = ui.DATE_PICKER_MODE_DATE_AND_TIME date_picker.date = datetime.datetime.strptime('01/03/1958-07:00:PM', '%d/%m/%Y-%I:%M:%p') date_picker.present()
Here's a variant using
parsedatetimefor easy-to-read date parsing and math:
import ui import parsedatetime cal = parsedatetime.Calendar() picker = ui.DatePicker(bg_color=1) picker.date = cal.parseDT('tomorrow 8am') picker.present('sheet')
@AddledBadger , the beta version of Pythonista ships with module called arrow. Really simplifies date and time manipulation. If you are not on the beta version but have installed StaSH, you could pip install arrow yourself. Knowing that when the beta makes it to the App Store, arrow will be included.
Look this is not as easy as what the other guys suggest if you dont have arrow installed. I understand why they dont suggest it. Anyway, its another way.
Anyway, the below is using arrow module.
import ui import arrow dp = ui.DatePicker(bg_color='white') dp.mode = ui.DATE_PICKER_MODE_DATE_AND_TIME arr_date = arrow.get('2017-11-26 08:00:00', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss') dp.date = arr_date.datetime dp.present('sheet')
