    Please tell us which of your form you are working this on so we can also review the form. 

    Also, where do you want the full date format to appear? Was it on the email content? the Thank You page?

    We need more information so we can come up with a working resolution.

    We will wait for your updated response. 

    Thanks.

    This is not possible if using the DateTime field only as it does not have such properties.

    You will need to use another field/widget that have the option to display the full date string.

    The Form Calculation widget can do this. You can use it to display the date value from the DateTime field to show the full date value.

    Example: 


    assign this formula:

    The output result will be like this.

    Please note that the date picker and the calculation widget are separated, the widget will show the date string as you want and your users will still need to select the date on the date picker, basically the calculation widget will be used to display the date string only. 

    However, you may provide us more details about what you would like to achieve, we will be glad to help you.

    The date sticker options are causing too much confusion by only offering numberic formats. The U.S. uses 0M/0D/year and everyone else in the world use 0D/0M/year. I need for the date sticker to spell out Monday 0D year.

    Use this widget https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/localized_calendar

    It has "Full" option which shows the full month name. You can also pick the language you prefer. The downside is that it doesn't have an option to show the days of the week.

    Example:

    With regards to your suggestion about showing the full names on Date Picker field, I'll escalate it as a feature request.

    Thanks

    By the way, you might also want to consider the Birth Date Picker widget.

    Elton,
    Thanks so much. And if you don’t mind, save me a little time before I try to figure this out on my own. Can I use this widget to replace the current date field I am using that will only reflect numeric date. Can I add the calender feature that allows the customer to click on the calendar image and select the date?

    Whoops
    The conditional feature on the old date field that allowed me to delete the return date if they select the “one way” field has been removed. Can I include conditional logic with the widget date field?
    Otherwise, I am back at square one.
    Also, thanks for the suggestion on the CSS code. But how to see the existing CSS code for the both the widget date field and the standard date field so I can make the adjustment to the font?

    The side by side shows the email I receive from Jotform with every other line shaded. The other side shows the same email in outgoing form after I deselected "shadows" (see the other attachment.
    How can I deselect the every other line shading so I do not have to do so with every single submission.
