Display current date & time

With  data binding , you can display the current date and time in your application. This variable is exposed in timestamp unit. 
The timestamp (unix) is the number of seconds elapsed since January 1st 1970 at midnight UTC. 
Example of timestamp : June 6th 2021 at 1:30 and 0 seconds = 1622943024
To display current date and time, insert a text block and click on the Data binding icon. As Source, choose Current Date and Time (timestamp). To format the date and time in a universal format, you need to add a Date Format function and select the display settings (None, Short, Medium, Long, Full) for the date and time.
