Perspective Table renders[0] datetime value as text in[0]

The table has like so

I am trying to call a pop-up and I need to use the timeE field as a param in it.

But when I use the[0] to pass the info in its structure is in text.

I realize I can use the index of the selected row and get from there and that is what I am doing. But, what if I needed multiple rows. Shouldn’t it come through as a DateTime value?
