ImageProperties.DateTaken | dateTaken property

Gets or sets the date when the image was taken.

Syntax


var dateTaken = imageProperties.dateTaken;
imageProperties.dateTaken = dateTaken;

Property value

Type: Date [JavaScript] | System.DateTimeOffset [.NET] | Windows::Foundation::DateTime [C++]

The date when the image was taken.

Remarks

If the date property isn't set, this value defaults to 0 which can be translated into misleading dates in different programming languages. In JavaScript, for example, 0 translates to December 16, 1600. You should always check that this property is a real value and not 0.
