CRM 2011 – Javascript to set the current date and time

A quick blog entry and a suprisingly easy and small piece of code

In the code below I have function which gets triggered when a user ticks the confirm Closed checkbox it then sets the current date and time.

if the user untick the checkbox I wipe the date and time value.

The date functionality in javascript holds the current time as well

 function confirmClosedOnChange() {
 var closedConfirmed = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_closedconfirmed").getValue()

if (closedConfirmed) {
var currentDateTime = new Date();
} else {
