Dim value As Object
value = SpreadActions.DateTimeNow
public static readonly object DateTimeNow


This action places the current date and time (using the NOW function) in the active cell on this sheet. The formatting of the date and time depend on the setting of the DateTimeFormat and other settings of the DateTimeCellType for that cell.

The default key combination assigned to this action is the F3 key.

You can use this action along with a custom key combination by defining your own input or action map. For more information about maps, see Managing Keyboard Interactions.


This example sets up a map that uses the D key to place the current date in a date cell.
