Re: Date field issue

Hello Arunas


To update a date property using API script, you can
1) Set date with internal format
The date will be set independantly from time zone or daylight bias (summer time)
The complete format is requested
2) Set date with external format
The short data format should be used. It must match Windows settings
The date will be set considering time zone and daylight bias (summer time)


Code example (VB script)

Set date with internal format
oTimePeriod.SetProp "~DNS5)lXo4jC0[Absolute Start Date]", "2018/01/01 12:00:00"

Set date with external format
oTimePeriod.SetProp "~DNS5)lXo4jC0[Absolute Start Date]","1/1/2019","External"
