Set Date/Time

The Set date/time building block is used to define a date/time value.

Fully expanded, the Set date/time block has the following properties:

Set datetime building block

The Block Header (“Set datetime”)

There are no green input or output connectors in the header, because this building block is never explicitly executed. Rather, it is used to set a date/time value and deliver it to other building blocks.

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


Specify the individual components of the date/time value (year, month, day, hour, minute, second and millisecond) and use either the full date/time value or only the date or time part.

Click the expander buttons to work with the individual components separately.
