How do I get my dataform to display dates in DD/MM/YYYY format?

I have set my computer Region/Date to Australia DD/MM/YYYY format. I have set Sharepoint region to the same so my Sharepoint list displays in that format. I have created a PowerApp that insists on displaying dates in MM/DD/YYYY format. How do I change it?

Okay so i found a way to do this, if you change the 'format' property from something like 'DateTimeFormat.ShortDate' to just "dd/mm/yyyy" it will change it. I found that even when using TEXT(<field>, "dd/mm/yyyy") if the format property shows shortdate, or longdate or anything like that, it will use the browser defult.

I spent hours looking for complicated solutions and this appears to do the trick.


Thanks for your help.

i have managed to do that by editing the "Format" like that



A slightly different use case here, but it is somewhat relevant to this thread.  If you'd like to apply date/time settings to a field in a gallery, you can use:
