Date Property Type

The date property type is used to store a calendar date value. This value is stored internally as the number of days before or after the Agentry epoch date of January 1st, 2001. Negative values reflect dates prior to epoch. A date property is displayed on the Agentry Client in the format MM/DD/YYYY by default.

The date property may also be unset or invalid. In this case the year portion of the date property is set to zero (0000). This condition may be checked to determine if the date property has been set.

Date Property Type Attributes

  • Name: This is the unique identifier for the property definition. This value must be unique among all properties within the same parent definition.
  • Display Name: This attribute sets the default display name to label or otherwise identify the property value on the Agentry Client. This will also be the default label for any screen control that displays this property.
  • Blank: This attribute specifies whether or not a blank value is displayed for a date property when it has not been set (year is zero).
