    Hi Ananda,

    In wdInit put something like:

    wdContext.currentContextElement().setDateAttribute(new Date());
    

    Best regards, Maksim Rashchynski.

    try this

    create a new attribute, which is a string (sNewtext).

    bind this attribute to the value property of the inputfild

    then put a new action the the event onEnter for the inputfied

    for the action use the following code:

    wdThis.wdGetContext().currentContextElement().set<snewText>(wdThis.wdGetContext().currentContextElemt.get<datecontext>.getDate.toString());

    Hope this will help
