Logical Date Functoid

 

Use the Logical Date functoid ( ) to determine whether the input parameter is a date.

Input

Parameter 1: A string that may or may not be interpretable as an ISO-8601 formatted date.

Output

Output 1: The Boolean value True if the input parameter is determined to be a date; the Boolean value False otherwise.

Remarks

BizTalk Mapper, and XML in general, require date and time values to be specified in ISO-8601 format. However, this functoid will return the Boolean value True for any date format that is acceptable to the .NET Convert.ToDateTime method using invariant culture.
