I have table with column 'dateCreated' which supposed to have date when
record was created. How can I populate that field automatically with

I tried to use trigger 'before_create' to populate that field, but it
doesn't work. What I'm missing here?

__PACKAGE__->add_trigger(before_create  => 
sub { my $self = shift;                         
      $self->_attribute_store( { dateCreated => Class::Date->now } );
      } );

Regards, Vit
