Hi,

I'm building a web app that has a connection with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. On one of the pages you have to enter a starting date and an ending date in a textbox. By default the textboxes are filled with today's date. When I click on the save button, the date isn't saved.

<td valign="middle" class="ProjectCardLabel">
                            <asp:Label ID="lblStartingDate" runat="server" Text="Starting Date:"></asp:Label>
                        </td>
                        <td class="ProjectCardData">
                            <asp:TextBox ID="txtStartingDate" runat="server" Columns="10" MaxLength="10" 
                                style="background-image: url('images/png/calendarpicker_18x18.png'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: right center;" 
                                TabIndex="15"></asp:TextBox>
                        </td>
                        <td>&nbsp;</td>
                        <td valign="middle" class="ProjectCardLabel">
                            <asp:Label ID="lblEndingDate" runat="server" Text="Ending Date:"></asp:Label>
                        </td>
                        <td class="ProjectCardData">
                            <asp:TextBox ID="txtEndingDate" runat="server" Columns="10" MaxLength="10" 
                                style="background-image: url('images/png/calendarpicker_18x18.png'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: right center;" 
                                TabIndex="16"></asp:TextBox>
                        </td>

I use a web service from Dynamics to create a new record. The creation date and modified date are stored correctly into the database.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (Page.IsPostBack)
        {
            ReadSession();
        }
        else
        {
            //we clear what might be left
            Session.RemoveAll();
            Session.Clear();

            // Set default date for starting & ending date
            txtStartingDate.Text = DateTime.UtcNow.ToShortDateString();
            txtEndingDate.Text = DateTime.UtcNow.ToShortDateString();
        }
    }

protected bool SubmitThisProjectToNavision()
    {
        //new General().SetThreadToDutch();

        string returnVal = "";
        bool hasSuccess = false;
        //string CustomerName = "";
        int NumberOfItems = ProjectList.Rows.Count;

        // Create an instance of ProjectCard.
        ProjectCard newProjectCard = new ProjectCard();
        // Create an instance of the service and set credentials.
        ProjectCard_Service ProjectCardServ = new ProjectCard_Service();
        try
        {
            ProjectCardServ.UseDefaultCredentials = true;

            DateTime startDate = DateTime.Parse(txtStartingDate.Text.ToString());
            DateTime endDate = DateTime.Parse(txtEndingDate.Text.ToString());
            
            // Insert project
             newProjectCard.Last_Date_Modified = DateTime.UtcNow;
            newProjectCard.Creation_Date = DateTime.UtcNow;
            newProjectCard.Starting_Date = DateTime.Parse(txtStartingDate.Text);
            newProjectCard.Ending_Date = endDate;
            ProjectCardServ.Create(ref newProjectCard);

            hasSuccess = true;
        }
        catch (Exception exep)
        {
            hasSuccess = false;

            try { ProjectCardServ.Delete(newProjectCard.Key); }
            catch (Exception) { }
        }

        if (hasSuccess)
        {
            returnVal = newProjectCard.No;
        }

        return hasSuccess;
    }

Can anyone help me to store the date correctly into the database.


Thanks,
Maarten

solved by doing the following:

1

create the record with the unique no.

2

after creation do an update
newProjectCard.No = txtNo.Text.ToString();
ProjectCardServ.Create(ref newProjectCard);

newProjectCard.Starting_Date = DateTime.Parse(txtStartingDate.Text, System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat);
newProjectCard.Ending_Date = DateTime.Parse(txtEndingDate.Text, System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat);

ProjectCardServ.Update(ref newProjectCard);
