Re: Trigger for the time in mobile application

Hi Islam,


It is only required that your DateTime field be of type 'TimeStamp'

In this way it will get updated automatically upon updating of the entity. No need for a trigger.


Here is example whereby I have database column 'TimeStamp' of datatype 'datetime' in SQLServer.

In the entity I set this type to be 'TimeStamp'


<Field Name="TimeStamp" Type="TimeStamp"/>


This is covered in the Mobile Documentation under section 'FieldTypes'
