    Cannot change date format on date picker widget

    Asked by tlinhfma on May 19, 2014 at 04:52 AM


    For some reason my date picker suddenly changes date format to m/d/y. I would like it to be d/m/y but cannot change it back. Does someone know what has happened and how to fix it?


    Thanks a lot!

    Hello Pauline,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I am able to replicate the issue you are having. There seems to be some technical glitch where even if the "Date Format" property of the "Date Picker" widget is changed, it always displays the m/d/y format.

    I am creating a bug report and sending it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as this issue is fixed.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for reporting this matter to us, Pauline.  And we apologize for this delayed update.

    We have now managed to fix this issue.  You might need to remove and add the widget again so for this to get fixed on your form.  

    If you have other questions, please do let us know.
