Date & Time item subclass properties

The Date & Time properties provide the flexibility to define multiple combinations of date-time formats.

Date & Time items can be interpreted as either binary or character. (See sections "Interpret as Binary" and "Interpret as Character" ).

For binary Date & Time items, the Presentation property has two different values: Packed and BCD.

Packed
The Packed value is a number that has size, decimal places, and sign properties.
BCD
The BCD value is a binary coded decimal number that has size.

Other Item Subclass properties for Date & Time are displayed depending on the Interpret as setting (Binary or Character).
