Set current date in af:inputDate on double click using javascript in ADF

Sharing is Caring

This post is about a question that is asked on OTN forum. In this post, I’ll show you that how we can set current date in af:inputDate component on double click of the mouse. For this, we need to use a simple javascript function.

Here we have an inputDate component on the page and added javascript function as a resource in the page. See page XML source

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<jsp:root xmlns:jsp="" version="2.1" xmlns:f=""
    < contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"/>
        <af:document title="SetCurrentDate.jspx" id="d1">
            <af:resource type="javascript">
              function setDate(evt) {
                  var comp = evt.getSource()
                  comp.setValue(new Date());

            <af:form id="f1">
                <af:inputDate label="Label 1" id="id1">
                    <af:clientListener method="setDate" type="dblClick"/>

All done, as you can see that the javascript function is called using clientListener on double click event of input date component.

  1. Are you aware of any declarative solution to always have the time part of an input-date component defaulted to 00:00:00 or 23:59:59? We can set the or . However, with this approach, the user loses the ability to change the time from the component.
