Sad


Hi,

I have changed my date format to dd-mm-yy in my user information but my new forms are still formatted mm-dd-yy.

What am I doing wrong?

Are you referring to the date question type, or the time/date stamp that is placed on the forms (at the beginning of the emails)?

This setting controls the date format for the time/date featured in the beginning of the form submissions. It does not change the format for the special date selector question type.

If you need to change the date selector question type on a form, you need to look at the actual form code and change all instances that say 'MM/DD/YYYY' to 'DD-MM-YYYY'.

Thanks Nick,

I really need the form questions to be in format dd-mm-yyyy.

mm-dd-yyyy is mostly only used in the USA.

I guess that you already realise this in allowing the format to be changed for emails.

Would it be possible for a future version of program to include the option to change the question date format to the international dd-mm-yyyy?

I tried locating the code and changing it as you suggested but got some very strange results.

Yes, this is planned for a future update. I'm am unsure however when it will take place.

In the mean time, if you post a link to your form, I can give you the exact code that needs to be changed.

Thank you for the fast response Nick.

I found out what I was doing wrong in changing the code. The MM must not be in lower case- i.e. new code needed is dd-MM-yyyy

OZCONS Very Happy
