Format

You can define a date-time format from within the type properties, except for native schema XML.

The output format for the native schema XML date/time field is always:
{CCYY-MM-DD}T{HH24:MM:SS.3-3+/-ZZ:ZZ}
To specify a different output format, use Xerces XML instead.

To define the Date & Time format:

  1. Open the type properties.
  2. In the Item Subclass > Format property, click the browse button.

    The Date Time dialog box is displayed.

  3. Make your format selections and click OK.

    You can use alphabetical characters as separators. In the example,
    2001-04-02T10:32:59-0500, T is the separator.

    Separators are limited to 60 characters.

Supported date formats:

  • CCYYMMDD
  • YYMMDD
  • MMDDCCYY
  • MMDDYY
  • CCYYDDD
  • YYDDD
  • DDMMCCYY
  • DDMMYY
    Note: The DDMMCCYY and DDMMYY formats did not exist prior to version 6.5 of the Design Studio. If you had defined either one of these formats prior to 6.5 as a custom format, it will be recognized in 6.5 as the respective new format, instead of the previously defined custom format.
