AX – D365FO – convert datatime to string in a specific format

Custom formatting string in .NET makes it really easy.

static void Job61(Args _args)
    System.DateTime dateTime = System.DateTime::get_UtcNow();
    str utcTimeAsStr = dateTime.ToString('yyyyMdd_HHmmss');
    info(strFmt("Datetime in GMT: %1",utcTimeAsStr));    


This code achieves this output

Datetime in GMT: 20211105_113052
