Thanks for the bug report (in fact is more a mistake of a programmer who is from central europe). We'll fix it for the next update.


Cheers.

Whoever complained about the date widgets displaying the day first made my life difficult.


In fact, I'm in Belgium to be precise and in this country of ours we diplay date as follows: dd/mm/yyyy.


Could it be possible to change the date widgets so that one can select the format in which it should display ?


Thanks

I'm afraid there is no way to change the format (it will but not in the near future). Anyway you can use this prototype to have your input dates in dd/mm/yyyy http://justinmind.s3.amazonaws.com/ch...

Hi Victor, your link (http://justinmind.s3.amazonaws.com/ch...) gives me a chage_date_format.zip file. Once unziped, I see .xml files and not a single .vp file !!! How am I going to open these files in JustInmind environment ?

I'm working in Australia and would like to build some prototypes for a client. Some of the fields have dates but it will disturb them greatly if the dates are entered and displayed in USA format: mm/dd/yyyy.


Australia and most of Europe either have dates as:


yyyy/mm/dd


or


dd/mm/yyyy


Will Justinmind be able to support these other dates soon?


This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled


Do you support non USA date formats? eg., dd/MM/yyyy.

To be honest I was not satisfied with the reply given to me sometimes back. I'm in Europe and would also like to see a widget that supports the dd/mm/yyyy format.


They should either make one widget that is customizable as far as formatting is concerned or two widgets that behave differently. We've baught the enterprise edition and expect the best out of it.

The solution explained in this thread is just a workaround while we develop a widget like the one you described. It's true that the best way would be to have a property in the date widget that allows you to set the format you want for the date. Many people have requested for this already and it has a high priority in our product's roadmap. I believe that option will be available before the end of the present year or the beginning of 2012 at most.

How can such a simple change take until possibly 2012? We're Java developers and that kind of date format flexibility is coded in about 3 minutes via the SimpleDateFormat class.


What language is justinmind developed in that it takes months instead of minutes to provide such a simple feature?

You might be not much familiar with product development, maybe you are more used to projects than software product development but a change in a product can't be made and then launch another version that easy. If that were the case then people will become crazy with some many versions. Futhermore there is a roadmap on going and a planning that can't be changed easily without affecting the on going tasks. The product is not finished, we have a lot of work and new features under development, so we can't change our plans in one day. I hope you understand it.

Hi Is there any progress on this issue? Surely it can't be that difficult to have a checkbox option in the Properties panel of a date input to denote whether it's in US or European format?


Presently, I'm left with a dilemma of using lots of 'on tap' and 'on change' events to reformat the date to UK format within the input box (a very buggy way of doing it) or trying to get users to engage with a date format they're not familiar with. Both results are quite embarrassing to be honest!
