Topic: How to Show Calendar Dates as M/D/YYY?

HalGumbert priority asked 2 years ago

Expected behavior Show Dates as M/D/YYYY

Actual behavior Dates appear as DD/MM/YYYY

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) I tried to change the formats in this code so dates in the tooltips and the date picker appear as M/D/YYY, but when changed, the calendar won't load properly. What is the correct way to change how dates are displayed?

this.formats = {
      date: 'DD/MM/YYYY',
      dateTime: this.options.twelveHour ? 'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm A' : 'DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm',
      time: this.options.twelveHour ? 'hh:mm A' : 'HH:mm',

This is a bug. In the _createCurrentMonthDayFields method, change = date; to = moment(date, 'DD/MM/YYYY').format(;

I applied the bug fix with no issues in all_min.js, with no negative result: = l()(o,"DD/MM/YYYY").format(,

However, when I changed this.formats as shown above to M/D/YYYY, an error occurred that I could not get around which could be related to changing So I hard coded "M/D/YYYY" to each format in tooltips.js and templates.js.

So, I'm happy now, but it's be nice to change date, time and timestamp formats in one place.

Thank you for your help!
