Sets the date pointed to by value corresponding to the date of the given field. Caller is responsible for making sure the field exists and has the correct type.

On success value will point to a newly-allocated copy of the date which should be freed with when no longer needed (note: this is inconsistent with e.g. Structure.getString which doesn't return a copy of the string).

class Structure
string fieldname


fieldname string

the name of a field

value Date

a pointer to a glib.Date to set

Return Value

Type: bool

TRUE if the value could be set correctly. If there was no field with fieldname or the existing field did not contain a data, this function returns FALSE.
