Automatic field to display date saved/modified

Avatar

Level 5

Hello,

I have a "Revision Date" field in a footer but it displays the current date. I would like to display the date the file was last modified.  This script in the layout:ready event is:


this.rawValue = util.printd("yyyy/mm/dd", new Date());




I'm looking for an equivalent of the modDate property in Acrobat, but the Javascript reference says there's isn't one for LiveCycle.


Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Hi,

If you are meaning then the form template (as opposed to a user saving an instance of the form) was saved/modified you can try,

this.rawValue = util.printd("yyyy/mm/dd", util.scand("yyyy-mm-dd", xfa.timeStamp));

Regards

Bruce

That works perfectly, thanks!

I decided I needed the date in mm/dd/yyyy format, but when I changed both masks to that format, it didn't work.  I had to change only the util.printd mask to mm/dd/yyyy.

Where can learn a little more about using the "util" method?

Hi,

The util.scand format specifies the input format, so your change makes sense.

The documentation can be found here http://help.adobe.com/livedocs/acrobat_sdk/10/Acrobat10_HTMLHelp/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm?h...

and there's some other samples here  http://adobelivecycledesignercookbookbybr001.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/using-utilprint-methods.html

Take care as there are some differences with the XFA format specifications and the Acrobat JavaScript format
