  • To define the tscollection time vector relative to a calendar date, set the TimeInfo.StartDate property to a valid date character vector. Valid dates can have the following formats:

    FormatExample
    dd-mmm-yyyy HH:MM:SS01-Mar-2000 15:45:17
    dd-mmm-yyyy01-Mar-2000
    mm/dd/yy03/01/00
    mm/dd03/01
    HH:MM:SS15:45:17
    HH:MM:SS PM3:45:17 PM
