Auto-fill date in a repeater field

  • I’m building a system to add notes to a WP user, and am planning to use a repeater field to store the notes.

    I’d like to have a non-editable date-stamp field that is auto-filled with the current date & time.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks

  • I don’t think that this is possible without adding custom javascript. The problem is that a repeater sub field will always have the same value. You could probably create an acf/load_field filter and update the default value to the current time.

    Basically I would look at this https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/adding-custom-javascript-fields/ and I would add an append action that updated the field value through JS. I’d probably also add an action to the other fields to update the time when a change was made. There is also the problem that I don’t think that date fields can be made read only and you’d probably need to use a text field.

    On the other hand, it may be possible using the date_time_picker_args filter hook listed on the javascript documentation.
