Hi there,

I'm trying to wrap the Active-X Control "DatePicker" (ProgID =
MSComCtl2.DTPicker)with the swt.ole.win32 - classes and I'm wondering how
to interprete the property "Value" (IDispatch-ID 20)of said control, which
should give back a Date. Here's what I'm doing:

int[] rgdispid = automation.getIDsOfNames(new String[]{"Value"});
int dispIdMember = rgdispid[0];
Variant result = automation.getProperty(dispIdMember);

Calling e.g. the result.getString() or result.getInt() for the Date
2005-01-18 creates "38370"

Does anybody know a way to convert the result into a java.util.Date?

Cheers,

Boris

There is some info about this out there:

From the look sof teh above link, it can be quite messy. I think the
correct way is to use the built MSDN calls like VarBstrFromDate.

This is not currently supported by SWT - you could enter a bug report and
request the feature
