If your control uses an appropriate data type, you can specify exactly how you want dates and times to look.
What if the date inside a text box or date picker appears in the form as 10/18/08, but you'd rather it be October 18, 2008 or 18-Oct-2008, or something else entirely?
In this scenario, all you need to do is change the display format for the date or time. To do this, your control must be one of the following three data types:
- Date (date)
- Time (time)
- Date and Time (dateTime)
The default data type for the date picker is Date (date).
You'll have a chance to practice changing the display format for controls in the practice session that's coming up.
