Set current date time in client

Hi all,

       I try to set current date when click button by function

       var today = new Date();

       this.set("UsrSentAt", { value: today });

       But system shows error "The entered value does not match the column type" and can't display value on datetime picker. How can I set value for it?

Hello Toan!

Please double check if the "UsrSentAt" attribute has DATE type. 

Also, you should pass the value as it is, not creating the object.

this.set("UsrSentAt",   today );

For example:

I have created attribute 

"Date": {

                dataValueType: Terrasoft.DataValueType.DATE,

                type: Terrasoft.ViewModelColumnType.VIRTUAL_COLUMN


And I was able to successfully set it :

onEntityInitialized: function(){



                var date  = new Date();

                this.set("Date", date);


Hi Alex,

Thanks for replying, see my screenshoot

Toan Mai,

Anyway, example that I sent above should work. Just pass the raw value in the set function instead of new object. 

this.set("UsrSentAt",   today );
