Formatting Date In Calendar Popup



Hi!I have several calendar popups in my app, and I usually want to set the default date by receiving a parameter. In this case a timestamp.

I want to format the date as short date, but can't find out how to do it. I cant find other parameters than timestamp. Is there a way to receive system date, or to format the timestamp as short date?

As I am located in Norway, the format should be DD.MM.YYYY.

Hi Jan,


I think, you can add this code to the Footer (do not forget clicking the Source button and changing FIELDNAME to the name of your field):

     var myDate = new Date();
     var myMonth = myDate.getMonth() + 1;
     if (myMonth<10) {myMonth = "0" + myMonth;}
     var myDay = myDate.getDate();
     if (myDay<10) {myDay = "0" + myDay;}
     var myYear = myDate.getFullYear();
     var result = myDay + "." + myMonth + "."  + myYear;

When a DataPage opens, the current date in the "dd.mm.yyyy" format is entered to the field.


I'll be grateful, if you tell me if the code works.

Have a nice day!
