Ability to create Date/Time item with only date information in LotusScript

When a Notes client opens a form and saves a date field that does not display a time, a date-only date item is created that has no time or time zone information. This item information can be found in the value of the document property.

LotusScript requires the use of Cdat to create date items. However, Cdat cannot create date items with only date information, but with "00:00:00" and time zone information.

LotusScript and forms have different information, and the ability to create date items with only date information from LotusScript is requested.

    If you use CDat, or numbers, it's only for very simple work with date and time. As already written here, if you want to take better advantage of Time/Date fields, you need to use NotesDateTime class or even NotesDateRange.

    This is possible

    Create a notestimedate object and when the Date object is created use the function SetAnyTime. Now do replaceitemvalue and the time is gone.
