Date, Date & Time
date & time object fields are represented by a calender widget in the Pimcore GUI.
In the database its data is saved as unix timestamp and thereby stored in an INT data column. Programmatically these data types are represented by a DateTime/Carbon Object.
time data field is the same drop down list of day times as in the
date & time field.
It's stored as a string in a VARCHAR(5) column in the database and can be set programmatically by simply passing a string like for example "11:00" to the field's setter.
dateRange object field consists of two
date fields (start and end date) and can be filled
with the usual calendar widget in the Pimcore GUI or programmatically via the Pimcore API.
The two dates are stored as unix timestamps in two separate INT columns in the database. Programmatically the date range is represented by a CarbonPeriod Object.
