DateTime is a Field that stores a date and a time value.


Field handler

  • handler: SenseNet.ContentRepository.Fields.DateTimeField
  • short name: DateTime

Usage in CTD:

   <Field name="CreationDate" type="DateTime">

Supported Field Controls


The following properties can be set in the field's configuration:

  • DateTimeMode: (optional) an enumeration which defines the presentation mode of the stored value: None, Date and DateAndTime. This only controls the behavior of the DatePicker Field Control. Default is None.
  • Precision: (optional) an enumeration which defines the precision of the indexed value: Millisecond, Second, Minute, Hour, Day (Default is Minute). This does not affect the stored value, only the value stored in the index, making it possible to use different precision levels depending on the nature of the application. Chosing a finer or coarser precision than the optimal may cause slower query running and larger index files than what would be reasonable. Default is Minute.

For a complete list of common Field Setting configuration properties see CTD Field definition.


Fully featured example:

<Field name="MyDateTimeField" type="DateTime">
	<DisplayName>My DateTime field</DisplayName>
	<Description>DateTime content</Description>

The above example configures the DateTime field so that:

  • it stores the date and time values
  • it stores the date/time in the index in seconds
