Hey everyone I am a small business owner and I was looking for a way to take the current device date and time from the phone and making my application automatily update to the date and time. I have been trying for awhile but I cant seem it figure it out .

 

An example of how it is currently formatted is below but it works via a basic text box what I wish to improve.

 

Example

22 Apr 2022

    09:46pm

 

I just need it to be a small box that constantly updates so if anyone knows how to do that it would be greatly appreciated.

XD has no scripting capabilities so unfortunately you cannot do this out of the box

In theory you can do this with a plug-in but it'd be a bit of work...

This should be straightforward - although I haven't done any plugin dev myself (yet!)

I'd start here:
