Custom Date attribute (Based on Due date value)


VK L (8177156159) | asked Feb 19 '13, 6:12 a.m.
Hi All,
           I am trying to create a calculated value script for this:

newdate = duedate + 7 days

I am getting this error:
[ ccm: AsynchronousTaskRunner-1] ERROR com.ibm.team.workitem.common                        - Error invoking value provider 'com.ibm.team.workitem.valueproviders.VALUE_PROVIDER._AzZLYHmpEeK5jqU0rlGqKg'
com.ibm.team.repository.common.TeamRepositoryException: Unexpected exception type
org.mozilla.javascript.EcmaError: TypeError: Cannot call method "getFullYear" of null ({"Bundle-SymbolicName":"org.dojotoolkit.dojo", "path":"\\resources\\date", "name":"stamp.js"}#127)

My script is as below:
(function() {
var WorkItemAttributes= com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes;
    dojo.declare("com.ibm.workitems.providers.Date", null, {

        getValue: function(attributeId, workItem, configuration) {               
        console.log("Start..");
        var dueDate = dojo.date.stamp.toISOString(workItem.getValue(WorkItemAttributes.DUE_DATE));       
        var date1= dojo.date.add(dueDate, "day", 7);
        console.log("Now is: " + date1);

    return date1;       

        }

    });

})();

Please advise.

Thanks.

I have once written this script and it worked for me.

 Hi All,

             This works. Used fromISOString method to retrieve, add method, and then toISOString to convert back and return value to the attribute.

Thanks.

Hi Valli,

Give a try by importing the prerequisites as below
dojo.require("dojo.date");
dojo.require("dojo.date.stamp");
dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes");
These lines should be added before the (function() {  statement.

Regards
Muthu
