Insert Current Date

Hi all,

I did a search but didnt find a can I insert the current date when I am using the Insert server behavior? When I used the Interakt MX Kollection server behaviors, I would put in {NOW} in the dialog box. Can you do that inside the data assist Insert behavior?

theres a few ways to do this:

1) Set the default value for the date column to:

Then no binding is needed in the insert, the database will automatically set the date column to the current date on insert.

2) create a hidden element and set the value to:

<?php echo(date("Y-m-d h:i:s")); ?>

the bind the date column to the hidden element

3) Instead of binding to the hidden element, set the code for the date column to:
<?php echo(date("Y-m-d h:i:s")); ?>
