PHP date field



I have a web page written in PHP with several fields so that my customers can created cases. One of the fields should be a data type but we're getting error messages so we switched to string. How does one define a data type field so that the case is correctly created in salesforce?


thank you

This function will convert the input date from your form to a datetime value acceptible to the API, assuming that the input date is valid:


public function getGMDate($dt) {

$s2 = strtotime($dt);

$s3 = gmdate("Y-m-d\TH:i:s.000\Z", $s2);

return $s3;



Note that you should have the correct timezone set in your PHP.ini. 

thank you. I will see if this does the job!
