Overview

This example shows how to use the toolkit API in test scripts to retrieve the date and time components of a UIDatePicker object:

import os
import sys

def main():
    ...
    startApplication(...)
    ...

    o = waitForObject("{type='UIDatePicker' visible='1'}")
    comps = get_uidatepicker_date_components(o)
    test.log(str(comps.hour))

def get_uidatepicker_date_components(obj):
    # UIDatePicker documentation:
    #   http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/UIKit/Reference/UIDatePicker_Class/Reference/UIDatePicker.html

    # Supported components:
    #   era, year, month, date, day,
    #   hour, minute, second, week, weekday,
    #   weekdayOrdinal, quarter, calendar, timeZone
    #
    # Component (NSDateComponents) documentation:
    #   http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/Cocoa/Reference/Foundation/Classes/NSDateComponents_Class/Reference/Reference.html#//apple_ref/doc/c_ref/NSDateComponents

    c = obj.calendar
    d = obj.date
    return c.components_fromDate_(-1, d)
