Hi,
In RC you can do easily with some API supported by programming language in which you are working. Just use the timestamp command.

But if you want to use in ide, it will be little tricky. If date and time you want appear on browser can be done in following ways:

1. Store date and time into variable from storeText(locator) command in selenium.
2. now, you will have a current date and time.
3. use it by using ${variableName}.

But if value is not appear on browser that will have to be done through RC only.

hope this will help you. Best of luck.

Byee
