View Full Version : problem with date binding

3 Jul 2012, 8:23 AM
I have a datefield and I tried to do like this to make the datefield show my data
xtype: 'datefield',
fieldLabel: 'Due date',
name: 'thread_end_date',
value: '26 Mar 2012',
columnWidth: 0.25,
format: 'd M Y'
but it doesn't show the value even i think the format is correct

Do you have any idea?

Take a look at the API docs for Ext.form.field.Date (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-0/#%21/api/Ext.form.field.Date). Example code is provided for setting the date properly.

Thank you friend
But if we look at the Date format example in the article you sent to me, it doesn't work neither.
Do you have any idea?

This works for me:

Ext.create('Ext.window.Window', {
bodyPadding: 5,
height: 100,
layout: 'anchor',
title: 'Date Test',
width: 176,
items: [{
xtype: 'datefield',
anchor: '100%',
fieldLabel: 'A Date',
format: 'd M Y',
labelWidth: 50,
value: '01 MAR 2012'

Thank you friend.
I know my problem. Because I my date is format in json like this Date010220012UC+002 ...., so the datefield doesn't understand. Do you know how to format this kind of date to dMY?

Thank you

If you use models use convert (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-1/#!/api/Ext.data.Field-cfg-convert) function in field config:

function convertDate(value) {
return value;// convert date from you format

Ext.define('MyModel', {
extend: 'Ext.data.Model',
fields: [
{name: 'date', type:'date', convert: convertDate}

or dateFormat cfg (format string see Ext.Date.parse (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-1/#!/api/Ext.Date-method-parse)):

Ext.define('MyModel', {
extend: 'Ext.data.Model',
fields: [
{name: 'date', type:'date', dateFormat: ''}
