Javascript Time Stamp Help Please

Recommended Posts


I have a field named "todaysdate" and I am trying to add it into the timestamp script that I found on the message board.

Here is the javascript:

//(1) Declaration and initialization

Stamp = new Date();

var v_TimeStamp;

//(2) Construct the value of the v_TimeStamp variable in the format mm/dd/yyyy

v_TimeStamp=('' + (Stamp.getMonth() + 1) +"/"+Stamp.getDate()+ "/"+Stamp.getFullYear());

//(3) Field name - Date is referred with a prefix - EditRecord


If you could guide me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

You forgot to change the field name to the one that you have in your table.

Change this part of the code.




Also EditRecordFieldname is to access a field in a Search/Report DataPage. If you are trying to run this JavaScript for a webform then it would be InsertRecordFieldname.
