    Hello,

    I want to know , if possible, how to show date and time in text box on scheme or dashbord.
    I would like ot show it as time reference for end users. Normally this should be server or computer time.
    NB: I’m working on Version 6 Beta.

    Thank you for your help.

    I also would like to know how can this be implemented? Time shown is very important.

    DateTime.Now.ToOADate() or DateTime.UtcNow.ToOADate()

    Date, DateTime or Time channel format

    The channel formula is no different from version 5 in this case, supported as in .Net Framework and in NET6

    hello, I also tried to use the formula DateTime.Now.ToOADate() and put this formula at one of my input channel eg 101. After upload to configuration, I do not see the current time and displayed with blank value or — at the scheme diagram.

    Can you share how this can be implemented? Or I have something that is missing for the setup and implementation.
    Or you can share screenshot to help on here.

    Thanks a lot!
