The DateTime Picker component uses the calendar to select the date and time. You can choose the "pickerType" to set both date and time, or just date. Configure the date and time format in the Property Editor using the formattedValue property. To use the DateTime Picker, select the month, date, and time on the component.

This feature is new in Ignition version 8.1.2

Perspective Component Events
The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
