    Default value for Date

    Sorry for the newbie question, but how do I set the default value for a date?

    Code:
    private int iDate = ToDay(DateTime.Now);
    Doesn't seem to work. Something object reference to an instance something....

    Hello Siroki,

    Thank you for your post.

    Are you setting this in the Variable section? You may want to just declare the variable first and then set the variable inside OnBarUpdate()

      No, because I need it for the input parameters. I just would like to have a default value in stead of 0.

        Siroki,

        You won't be able to use the ToDay() outside of a method as there is no Object reference for it to call and calculate.

        I suggest that you create a DateTime user input that you can then pass through the ToDay later on in the script

        private DateTime dateToPass = DateTime.Now;

        then later on in OnBarUpdate()

        iDate = ToDay(dateToPass);

          Ok so here is how I fixed it.

          Code:
          		private DateTime dtDateFrom = DateTime.Today;
          		private DateTime dtDateTo = DateTime.Today;
          
          
                  protected override void OnBarUpdate()
                  {
          		if(ToDay(Time[0]) < ToDay(dtDateFrom) || ToDay(Time[0]) > ToDay(dtDateTo)) {
          			return;	
          		}
          
          do something....
          
                  }
          		
                  #region Properties
          		[Description("Startdate Active [yyyyMMdd]")]
          		[GridCategory("Parameters")]
          		public DateTime DateFrom
          		{
          			get { return dtDateFrom; }
          			set { 	if(value > DateTime.Today) { 
          						dtDateFrom = DateTime.Today;
          					} else { 
          						dtDateFrom = value; 
          					} 
          				}
          		}
          		[Description("Enddate Active [yyyyMMdd]")]
          		[GridCategory("Parameters")]
          		public DateTime DateTo
          		{
          			get { return dtDateTo; }
          			set { 	if(value > DateTime.Today) { 
          						dtDateTo = DateTime.Today;
          					} else { 
          						dtDateTo = value; 
          					} 
          				}
          		}		
                  #endregion
