Generate date/time

The Generate date/time block will generate a date/time value that contains the current system date and time.

Fully expanded, the Generate date/time block shows the following properties:


The Block Header (“Generate date/time”)

The green input connector in the header is used to trigger the block to start executing and generate the current date/time value.

The green output connector in the header triggers when the date/time value has been generated.

The title of the block (“Generate date/time”) can be changed by double-clicking on it and typing in a new title.


The current system date/time value.

The individual date and time values can be used separately, and again be separated out into year, month, day and hour, minute, and second values.
