View Full Version : DatePicker display format

19 Dec 2011, 8:28 AM
Is it possible to specify the display format of a DatePicker control e.g. 'd-M-Y'? I couldn't see anything obvious in the API docs.

It looks like it gets set off of Ext.util.Format.defaultDateFormat

I can't see that in the API docs, where can I find this?

I looked at the source... the updateValue method. Don't be afraid to look at the source, it's actually quite small for DatePicker

I have just taken a look at the source too (for PR3) and cannot see any updateValue function.

Im looking in src\picker\date.js is this the correct file?

I answered my own question, was looking at the wrong source file! I have found what I'm looking for now, and got the date picker displaying in the format I require.

I am using MVC and in my launch method I am setting it like so:

Ext.util.Format.defaultDateFormat = 'd-M-Y';

Still think it would be nice to be able to override it in the config object

Agreed. I added it as a ticket.
