    2 digits year in datetime field format

    Asked by CheapAlice on May 05, 2014 at 08:05 AM


    I am interested in having a choice of creating a date in format 02-05-14 (currently 02-02-2014)

    I know I can create my own field and use an input mask, however this would not allow for a calandar date picker.

    Ther reason for my request is I am using Jot2Tweet app and need all the additional character space that I could gain.

    Please advise.

    You can try using the Localized Calendar widget and then setting the date format to: dd-mm-y:

    Let us know if further support is needed.

    Thank you

    much appreciated. would still be a good option for your standard date/time picker as it contains some other options such as no previous dates allowed..etc..

    but this should work.

    Thanks again for the quick response.
