Time printed is not displaying correctly.

Level 5

Hello,

I have the following in my form, but when I print the form, the time is printing incorrectly.  It reads 4/18/2021 @ 7:6:38.  What is wrong with the script?

var oNow = new Date();
this.rawValue = (oNow.getMonth() + 1) + "/" + oNow.getDate() + "/" + oNow.getFullYear() +
" @ " + oNow.getHours() + ":" + oNow.getMinutes() + ":" + oNow.getSeconds();

 

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Let's assume that the formatting is wrong (single digits?). Here is how I would approach this with a DateTime field

Pattern: date{MM/DD/YYYY} '@' time{HH:MM:SS}

Results in

What is wrong with the printed time? Your script is basically correct but not to your expectation. Are we talking about formatting?

Thank you. So when I print the form, the date will appear? Also, Please explain the var oNow = new Date() script and why it's displaying single digits

Yes, if you place the field and use the picture clause as shown this will also be visible on printed forms. Your script does not format the time but converts integer values to string. Hour 1 comes as 1 and converts to "1" and not "01". You could write script that adds "0"s but that is more complicated compared to using the patterns.
