Is there a way to insert the current date?

How can be this controlled in that simulator? Can HIDmacros be used with this application?

Is there a way to insert the current date?

Post by HeyItsFranklin8 » 23 Aug 2018, 21:37

Howdy all!

I tried searching for this but couldn't find anything, so sorry if this has been addressed before.

Throughout the day I have to make A LOT of new folders with the current date as the name (ie: august 23 2018) is there a way to set up a hotkey with HIDmacros to just insert the current date as text?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I would expect one (or all) of the scripting languages supported in HidMacros has a function to get current date. Then you can format it and send as key presses. See http://hidmacros.eu/scripting.php
