Precision property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:
Determines the precision of a DateTime field. Specifically, whether the DateTime field supports handling Milliseconds or not.


Milliseconds Handles milliseconds precision (0 to 999)
Seconds Maximum precision is seconds, it does not handle milliseconds (default value)


When Precision is set to Milliseconds, then the DateTime data type field supports storing and displaying the DateTime with higher precision than just 1 second; it then supports fractions of seconds like 3.5 seconds (three and a half seconds), 10.250 seconds (ten seconds with 250 milliseconds) or 5.005 seconds (5 seconds with 5 milliseconds). Such a field is often also called a Timestamp.


This property applies only at design-time.
