Timestamp using Java




I was hoping someone could help me with creating some javascript. I have no knowledge of it whatsoever but it appears to be the only solution to my problem without using a pop up calendar (which seems to take forever on my pc to come up).

I want a timestamp to be put against all my submissions, but I only want DD/MM/YY recorded, and not DD/MM/YY HH:MM as is currently the set up in caspio. I wish to sort my results by day, but at the minute if I do a sort based on the current timestamp they will sort by day by hour by minute. I want my results to show the best price per day (eg Monday) as opposed to by minute the data was entered.

I have tried to amend the sample javascript given in the tutorial but I am not having much success. Can anyone give me a helping hand?

This was my last attempt (please don't laugh):- (my timestamp field is called "date", and it is an update datapage)


//(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



Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello dongtac,

Have you considered to use Timestamp data type within your table?


You can define date formatting in field advanced section in Datapage wizard:


Hope this helps.
