I do not see a clean way to do this when searching Google. I just want to create hidden form fields that use the server date as their values.

For example, a field will be used for current month, current day and current year. It seems silly to have the visitor set these values. I just want to use a hidden field that dynamically is applied.

Is there a clean and easy way to do this?

You can easily do this with any language (ASP, .NET, PHP, etc.).

But instead of doing it on the front end, it's usually just easier to process it on the backend instead of passing it through a form.
