Vision - Date Range Scripting Functions

This page details the various component and extension functions available for Vision's Date Range component.

Component Functions

.setRange(start, end)

  • Description

    • Sets the selected range. The outer range will move if needed. Note: the start and end times are determined based on the zoom level and may not move (or may move farther than intended) if the component is zoomed out too far for the amount of change attempted. IE: When days are showing, moving the start time 5 minutes forward will not effect the start, and moving the end time 5 minutes forward will add one day.
  • Parameters

    • Date start - The starting date for the new selection.
    • Date end - The ending date for the new selection.
  • Return

    • Nothing
  • Scope

    • Client
