Date Format

Content migrated from TechNet.  Post attribution to:  PK Hong

We used to enter date as: dd/mm/yyyy; Hence, in the InputBox, when I have Today(), it will show mm/dd/yyyy (US Format). I tried using Text(Today(), "dd/mm/yyyy") to force it to change but in vain. Moreover, the date actually displayed in another page after Navigation, show, Date: yyyy-mm-dd and hh:mm:ss. So, I have to use Left(Date, 10) to truncate.

Quite a stupid way. Any suggestion? It always make me in trouble, because any WRONG FORMAT will result in PATCH fails to write into excel file (I spent 20 min to find out this).

GREAT!!! The Format property has been added to a date control. It is now so easy to set the format to "dd mmm yyyy" get 24 Feb 2021.

Another app development platform, another universe of confusing crippled date support. Sigh. I don't see any solution in here to simply represent my date field as "dd mmm yyyy" in a data card / detail screen.
