Yes, but way more difficult than you might think. The way you describe your question you seem not to have to store the datetime in the database, so this is a Mendix way of doing that:

  • from the appstore download the HTML-widget
  • add a textelement to the page giving it in tab General, in block Common the value Name ‘TickingTime’
  • Below that, add the HTML-widget to the page, selecting Javascript, not HTML nore Javascript with jQuery
setInterval(function(){ document.getElementsByClassName('mx-name-TickingTime')[0].innerHTML = new Date();}, 1000);
