When using the Method editor, a macro can be used to insert a date. The date can be displayed in 8 different ways. Here are instructions to modify the date tag in the Macro.xml file.
1. Open the Macro.xml file in a text editor. The file is located in your active 4D folder and varies with your machine.
2. Modify the date format tag by entering a number between 1 and 8.
This is how the tag is used with option 3, <date format="3"/>.
The following list displays the option and how the date is formatted.

Additional macro information can be found in the 4D Design Reference on Chapter 8: Creating Methods, Using the Method Editor, Creating and using macros.
