I have created a model for Articles, and in the articles I am trying to implement a date created on initial create.

//Model

    [Display(Name = "Date Created")]

    public DateTime dateCreated

    {

        get { return DateTime.Now; }

    }

It works well when I create an article, but it also sets the same date time value to all the other articles. :/

Is there a way around this?

    Hi Samuel,


    Here's what you need:

    private DateTime? dateCreated;

    public DateTime DateCreated

    {

        get { return dateCreated ?? DateTime.Now; }

        set { dateCreated = value; }

    }
