The TimestampType property is used to:
  • Find out the type of timestamp for an item. This item was defined in the data model editor or through programming.
  • Define the type of timestamp for a Date, Time or DateTime item (when describing the item through programming).
Reminder: You cannot assign a value to a "Timestamp" item through programming. The date the record was created or last changed will automatically be assigned to it.
Example
AFile is File Description
AnItem is Item Description
AnItem.Name = "CmdDate"
AnItem.TimestampType = htsCreation
AnItem.TimestampUTC = False
HDescribeItem(AFile, AnItem)
