Rate this:

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


    [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; }
