From SmartWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This following will obtain the server time in real time, formatted as yyyy-mm-dd HH:mm:ss

 var rs=session_getuser(false,,'now() as currentdate');
 thedate=rs.getfieldbyname(1,"now() as currentdate");


  • This method is often preferred to using JavaScript to obtain the current time. JavaScript uses the time on the client machine, which doesn't take time zones into consideration and is also configurable by the user so can bypass submission time restrictions etc.
  • You will need to enable the Find permission on Session_CurrentUser within the Pandora Security Matrix
