Setting my Application to Expire After a Certain DateDocument ID: IR10063
The information in this article applies to:
- AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 Standard Edition
- AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 Professional Edition
This article describes how to set your application to expire after a certain date.
To make your application expire after a certain date, set a variable in your program to the expiry date, and every time the program is run, check the current date against that value.
To accomplish this, insert the following code into the On Startup event of your project:
--Input your expiration date here, format YYYYMMDD
--(no spaces, dashes, slashes, etc. just use numbers)
--Below is the date Dec 12, 2003
Expiration_Date = "20031212"
--Get the system date in ISO format
--Date = YYYY-MM-DD
Date = System.GetDate(DATE_FMT_ISO);
--Remove the dashes in the ISO format date
--to reflect the format of our expiry date
--Date == YYYYMMDD
Date = String.Replace(Date, "-", "", false);
--test to see if the application is expired
if Date > Expiration_Date then
--The application has expired
Dialog.Message ("", "application is expired");
