I want to have the current date and time entered into a field when the form user clicks a custom e-mail button so I know when the form was e-mailed. Is there a scipt that I can add to the click event of the custom button, that will enter the current time and date when the button is clicked?

Hi,

this can be done with FormCalc.

Concat(Num2Date(date(), "EEE D/M/YYYY "), Num2Time(time(), "H:MM A"))

There are a couple of manuals for Designer available.

You should use the Scripting Basics and Reference and also the FormCalc User Reference.

There a several ways to get the current date&time.

One would be xfa.host.currentDateTime() which returns a date time string int the ISO 8601-Format JJJJMMTTHHMMSS.
