Steve Krantzmananswered the question Form: <calendarbutton> click enters current date and time</calendarbutton>

Jeff, Did you ever come up with the answer you were looking for? Part of you question depends upon the Data Type of the the target field. It needs to be a "datetime" data type not just a "date" data type. My question to you would be why are you using …

  • Kelly FordHi Mike,

    We often think of Feeds as read-only. In reality you can use them to write data to the DB as well. Just have your ListDataSource perform an UPDATE or INSERT SQL statement using parameters you've passed-in (i.e. the IP) . All you need to do is remember to return a value (it can be any value. I often simply return the number 1 to my callers) to keep the feed from presenting an error.

  • Mike PalmerKelly,

    Thank you for your comment - very helpful. I was able to get both feeds working to perfection. The bot retrieves the current IP address from Google (What is my ip) and compares it to the last known IP in the DB (using an XMOD Feed) and then changes my DNS Settings if it needs to, then finally writes the new IP to the DB using another feed.

    The bot checks the IP address once a day, and does all of the necessary management.
