I have a scenario where I want to get the value in date field. I have following queries regarding this ; Where to create a variable ? How to get the value from date field (or any other input field) and assign it to my created variable ? How to pass this variable to some microflow so that I can read it in microflow .
-The concept of defining variables in Mendix is on the activity microflow.
1- open microflow
2- add activity box
3- select the type of action to create variable.
- and getting the date field value also by using new activity on microflow.
Not totally sure in which context you are wanting to use a datetime field, but I suppose you want to use it on a page.
If so then:
Variabels (such as datetime) are created in a microflow using the ‘Create variable’ action.
However if you want to us it on a page, you have to use a (non)-persistent entity, where you have a datetime attribute.
For example, you can use a dataview in combination with a datasource microflow in which you can retrieve existing data before showing the page.
On the page itself you link the datetime attribute to an input field.
Using an action button you can pass the entity to an ‘on-click’ microflow for further processing.
Please have a look at the awesome learning paths Mendix provides for these kind of questions
