crdate
Path

$GLOBALS['TCA'][$table]['ctrl']

Type

string (field name)

Scope

Proc.

Field name, which is automatically set to the current timestamp when the record is created. Is never modified again.

By convention the name crdate is used for that field.

Note

The database field configured in this property is created automatically. It does not have to be added to the ext_tables.sql.

Examples

The following fields are set by the DataHandler automatically on creating or updating records, if they are configured in the ctrl section of the TCA:

EXT:my_extension/Configuration/TCA/tx_myextension_domain_model_mytable.php
<?php

return [
    'ctrl' => [
        'tstamp' => 'tstamp',
        'crdate' => 'crdate',
        'cruser_id' => 'cruser_id',
        'origUid' => 't3_origuid',
        // ...
    ],
];
