WorkflowGen will automatically take the date value entered by user from a
DateTime text field on a web form and add the proper value to the
FormData. However, if a date is set manually in code-behind, by default the date will not have the time zone factor and it will cause a date issue.
May 1, 2019 (2019-05-01) will become
2019-05-01T00:00:00 in the WorkflowGen form data. When this value is passed to WorkflowGen process data, if the time zone is Eastern US & Canada time, it will become April 30, 2019 because of the 4-hour delay.
Use the WorkflowGen.My DLL class method to format your datetime in consideration of the user’s current time zone. Assuming the current time zone is Eastern US Canada (Daylight Saving time) and the datetime value
2019-05-01. It can be processed to transform
DateTime myUtcDateTime = (new WorkflowGen.My.Globalization.TimeZoneInformation(this.CurrentTimeZoneInfo)).ToUtcTime(myDateTime);
WorkflowGen.My has the
Globalization.TimeZoneInformation class, and
CurrentTimeZoneInfo is part of the
WorkflowGenPage that contains the current user time zone info.
After the transformation,
myUtcDateTime will contain the value
2019-05-01T04:00:00 and WorkflowGen will be able to translate it properly for process data. The
-5 hours Eastern time zone
+1 hour for Daylight Saving time
Note: You must be using WorkflowGen v5.1.8 or later and WorkflowGen.My DLL v.2.2.0 or later in your web form.
