I am building a form based on a sharepoint list. It is a view only. One column is a date column. The default for thedate column is set to Parent.Default and placed in a label box. The date is always the wrong format so change the defaults to be Text(parent.Default,"dd/mm/yyyy"). I have found this does not work on a view Form. I have never had the problem before. on an edit form it is shown as a datepicker. On a view form it is shown as a label box
I do a work around by placing a datepicker with the format being what I need. When I set this to view only it shows as above but is correct now.
