Edit Date/Time Dialog Box

Use this dialog box to edit the value of the Date/Time type.

This dialog box does not support entering of RRTs.

When the dialog box opens the value is converted from its string representation.

Option Description
Date/Time Enter or select date and time in these two boxes.
Milliseconds Enter milliseconds value.
Zone Enter zone, for example, +06:00.
Note:

When you use Local date/time representation, the zero values of milliseconds and zone are always used. If you set some other values for such property, save and reopen this dialog box. The zero values will then be set automatically in Millisecond and Zone text boxes.

FileNet P8 Content Engine server always stores date/time values as UCT (Universal Coordinated Time: GMT+0). When the component stores value of the date/time field in Default representation on the server, it subtracts the specified time zone difference from the time stamp.

When you look into the properties of a sent document using FileNet P8 Enterprise Manager, you see date/time value converted into the time zone of the machine where the Enterprise Manager runs. When you look into the properties of a document using a web browser, you see date/time value converted to the time zone of the web server machine. When the above conversion occurs, the web server/enterprise manager applies system time settings to the converted date. It assumes that the time zone and clock skew rules in the moment of time described by the date field will be (or was) the same as currently configured in the OS.

Therefore if you want to see a particular property value via web-browser, you should precisely configure time zone taking this into account.

For example, if you want to see "2011-06-10 00:00" and the web server time zone is EST (Eastern Standard Time) with DST (Daylight Saving Time), the following should be specified: 2011-06-10 00:00:00.0 Z-4:00.

However, for winter months you should not add DST to the time zone: 2011-01-10 00:00:00.0 Z-5:00.

Default value This text box displays the default value for the field (if it is configured in the FileNetP8 Content Engine Object Store). Click the Set button to copy this value into the Date/Time, Milliseconds, and Zone text boxes.
Minimal value This text box displays the minimal value for the field (if it is configured in the FileNet P8 Content Engine Object Store). Click the Set button to copy this value into the Date/Time, Milliseconds, and Zone text boxes.
Maximal value This text box displays the maximal value for the field (if it is configured in the FileNet P8 Content Engine Object Store). Click the Set button to copy this value into the Date/Time, Milliseconds, and Zone text boxes.
Set current Click this button to set current date and time.

When you click OK, the value is converted to its string representation accordingly to the Representation setting of the field, which can be configured in the Add/Edit Property dialog box.
