GetDateFormatA  (KERNEL32.@)


 INT GetDateFormatA
  LCID              lcid,
  DWORD             dwFlags,
  const SYSTEMTIME* lpTime,
  LPCSTR            lpFormat,
  LPSTR             lpDateStr,
  INT               cchOut


Format a date for a given locale.


lcid [In] Locale to format for.
dwFlags [In] LOCALE_ and DATE_ flags from "winnls.h".
lpTime [In] Date to format.
lpFormat [In] Format string, or NULL to use the system defaults.
lpDateStr [Out] Destination for formatted string.
cchOut [In] Size of lpDateStr, or 0 to calculate the resulting size.


- If lpFormat is NULL, lpDateStr will be formatted according to the format details returned by GetLocaleInfoA and modified by dwFlags.

- lpFormat is a string of characters and formatting tokens. Any characters in the string are copied verbatim to lpDateStr, with tokens being replaced by the date values they represent.

- The following tokens have special meanings in a date format string:

  Token  Meaning
  -----  -------
  d      Single digit day of the month (no leading 0)
  dd     Double digit day of the month
  ddd    Short name for the day of the week
  dddd   Long name for the day of the week
  M      Single digit month of the year (no leading 0)
  MM     Double digit month of the year
  MMM    Short name for the month of the year
  MMMM   Long name for the month of the year
  y      Double digit year number (no leading 0)
  yy     Double digit year number
  yyyy   Four digit year number
  gg     Era string, for example 'AD'.

- To output any literal character that could be misidentified as a token, enclose it in single quotes.

- The Ascii version of this function fails if lcid is Unicode only.


Success: The number of character written to lpDateStr, or that would have been written, if cchOut is 0.

Failure: 0. Use GetLastError to determine the cause.
