i tried to use this

<?php echo $form->textField($model,getTimestamp()); ?>

Fatal error: Call to undefined function getTimestamp()

can you help me?

thank you

Timestamp: strtotime("now");

Date string format: date('Y-m-d H:i:s');

thank you. it works

You can solve this by defining default value for as timestamp in table structure, which will get auto current timestamp while adding a row to table


In form

<?php echo $form->hiddenField($model,‘owner_id’,array(‘value’=>date(‘yy-m-d H:m:s’))); ?>


In Model

protected function beforeSave() {

            if (&#036;this-&gt;isNewRecord)


$this->assignDate=date(‘yy-m-d H:m:s’)




// some code for update



            return true;
