• parameter DISPLAYLIST;
Used for enumerated (multiple-choice) attributes. Used in conjunction with the VALUELIST parameter for enumerated (multiple-choice) attributes. DISPLAYLIST, if not null, represents the display values for the attribute corresponding with the logical values listed in VALUELIST.

The display values are returned by the LogicalToDisplay method.

• parameter MAXVAL;
The maximum allowed logical value for the data type.
• parameter MINVAL;
The minimum allowed logical value for the data type.
• parameter VALUELIST;
Used for enumerated (multiple-choice) attributes. VALUELIST is either a null string ("") or a delimiter separated list (where the delimiter is the first character) of logical values. If a non-null value is present, then the attribute is restricted to values in the list, and the validation code simply checks to see if the value is in the list.
• parameter XMLTIMEZONE = "UTC";
XMLTIMEZONE specifies the handling of timezone part of the XML format dateTime. "UTC" means convert to UTC on input. "IGNORE means ignore the timezone.
• parameter XSDTYPE = "dateTime";
Declares the XSD type used when projecting XML Schemas.


• classmethod DisplayToLogical(%val As %String) as %TimeStamp
Converts the input value %val, which represents a timestamp value, to YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format.

Returns the value of the input string %val as a timestamp value (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format).

• classmethod IsValid(%val As %CacheString) as %Status
Tests if the logical value %val, which represents a timestamp value in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format, is valid. The validation is based on the class parameter settings used for the class attribute this data type is associated with. In this case, MAXVAL and MINVAL.
• classmethod LogicalToDisplay(%val As %TimeStamp) as %String
Converts the value of %val, which is in logical format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS, into a display string. The formatting is based on the value of the FORMAT parameter.

Returns the formatted value of %val.

• classmethod LogicalToXSD(%val As %StringTimeStamp) as %String
Converts the Cache %StringTimeStamp value to the canonical SOAP encoded value.
• classmethod Normalize(%val As %CacheString) as %TimeStamp
Transforms integer values into timestamp.
• classmethod OdbcToLogical(%val As %String) as %TimeStamp
Converts %val, which represents either a Timestamp in ODBC format, or a Date in ODBC format, into a logical Timestamp value.

Returns the logical Timestamp value of the ODBC Timestamp string %val.

• classmethod XSDToLogical(%val As %String) as %StringTimeStamp
Converts the SOAP encoded input dateTime value into a Cache %TimeStamp value.
