Access to record creation time

Postby khodadad » Fri Apr 18, 2014 1:53 am

Hi,
Is there any way to access the record creation time? I know that I can create a timestamp field with the current time, but the database is already created and I would like to access the time the records where created.
Creating a new field and populating it with the time of the records created until now would also be OK.

Thanks

Hi,

The record header stores a time but it's in minutes only and used for syncing. The only way to see it is to click the details button on the desktop where it's shown. I never implemented that on Android or iOS because no one ever seemed to use that feature on a mobile device. There's no way to expose it as a field or convert it because it's never really shown other than in that screen and it's stored in a completely different way- as part of a big binary blob of data!

And in the Windows version? I don't see that option there either.

When you are viewing a record in HanDBase Desktop, select the Details option. The record creation time will be listed in the dialog that appears.

OK, I see it. Is there any way I can bring this data to a column?

Not retroactively, but going forward you could add a new date field and a new time field, each set with the parameter for date record added and time record added.
