Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
Values for DateTime fields in tables are stored in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Forms and other objects offer visual controls designed for displaying and editing the DateTime fields in local time, including adjustments for Daylight Savings Time (DST).
The following table lists controls that display or edit DateTime values, along with the time zone related properties that can be set for the control.
In the table, each control is identified by its path in the Application Object Tree (AOT), and then by its name in X++ code.
Each property is listed by its member named used in X++ code, followed in parentheses by its label in the client Property window.
For information about these properties, see Form Control Properties.
