Perspective - DateTime Input

Component Palette Icon:

Description

A DateTime Input is an easy way to select a date from a popup calendar. Similar to the DateTime Picker component, it takes up much less real estate on the screen. Configure the date and time format in the Property Editor using the 'formattedValue' property.

New in 8.1.2

The DateTime Input component has two pre-configured variants:

  • Date and Time - Opens a calendar from which users can select a date and time.
  • Time - Enables users to set a time using the up and down arrows on the component.

Properties

Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective. This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.

Events that require user interaction, such as onClick events, will not fire with the exception of Pointer Events.

Component Events

The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
