Get current date/time? Use them in hidden field? - Macromedia Flex General Discussion

I've got an app that works as a reception log for clients coming in our agency. The receptionist logs each client's name into our log database. Currently we have to manually enter the date and time for the visit. I'd like this to be automatic when the client info form submits.

    Default Get current date/time? Use them in hidden field?

    I've got an app that works as a reception log for clients coming in our agency.
    The receptionist logs each client's name into our log database. Currently we
    have to manually enter the date and time for the visit. I'd like this to be
    automatic when the client info form submits.

    Right now the form and the database table contain a date field and a time
    field along with other fields about the client. The receptionist has to enter
    both date & time fields on the form and then submit it. This inserts a new
    record in the database. I'd like the date field and time field to
    automatically correspond to the current date and time, and have the fields
    hidden. When the form submits, the app sends the current date and time to the
    db table. Also, I need the date format as mm/dd/yyyy if anyone knows how to
    format it like this.

    Any help is appreciated

    This may get you started:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">
    <mx:Script>
    <![CDATA[
    [Bindable]
    private var today:Date = new Date();
    ]]>
    </mx:Script>
    <mx:DateFormatter id="DateDisplay" formatString="MM/DD/YYYY"/>
    <mx:TextArea id="myTA" text="{DateDisplay.format(today)}"/>
    </mx:Application>
