script date object


Former Community Member

I have a date/time field.

I want to initialize it with the current date.

In the initialize event of this the field, I have an issue with this script :

xfa.host.messageBox("before new date()");

var d1 = new Date();

xfa.host.messageBox("after new date()");

The line var d1 = new Date(); doesn't work. I work with designer 8.1.1, the language is Javascript and it is run at client.

Any ideas will be appreciated.
