i did a switch case code to get an attribute type and do something for each type; but when i try to get attribute type of a date it syas that it doesnt exist

how do i get the date type to know how to enter the right case in the switch ?

fieldType = Xrm.Page.getAttribute(fieldDestination[index]).getAttributeType();
                        switch (fieldType) 
                        {
                            case "lookup":
                                do something
                                break;
                            case "string":
                                do something
                                break;
                            case "optionset":
                                do something
                                break;
                            case "": // what should be here for date type? how to get the date AttributeType to know how to get here in this case?
                                do something
                                break;
                            default:
                                console.log(fieldType   "Unkown");
                                break;
                        }

    Hi Partner,

    You need use 'datetime' to get attribute type of a date.

    getAttributeType (Client API reference) - Power Apps | Microsoft Docs
