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

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.

Thank you for this. I have just tried it and low and behold it works, I have a Europe/UK date format in the date picker. 

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

Hello,

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

 

Text([YourDateFieldName].SelectedDate,"[$-en-US]dd/mm/yyyy","en-GB")

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:

 

 

Text(ThisItem.YourDateFieldHere,"[$-en-US]dd/mm/yyyy")
