    Posted: 31 October 2004 at 1:22am

I'm building a property grid that display's a few dates. Most detail when an event occured. Which the user doesn't need to change. But when I add 'item.readonly = true' I loose the popup calnedar. It would be handy to present the calendar as information, but just don't allow a change. Is this something that can be done with 9.5.1 ??

    Set Item = Category.AddChildItem(PropertyItemDate, "First Ping", DATEFIRSTPING)
        Item.DESCRIPTION = "date of first ping reply."
        Item.ReadOnly = True
       

Also, I noticed the date is displayed in the grid in a differnet format than it is read in as. Such as -

May 20, 2004

Is 20/05/2004 instead of what is used around Mississippi - 05/20/2004

Thanks for the help and the product is great..!

David

Has anyone found the solution to this?  I've tried setting the Format property of the PropertyGridItem to 'mm/dd/yyyy', and it doesn't work.

Here it is over two years later. Is it fixed? I'm using version 10.3.1 and it seems to still work this way. Actually the tutorial says it will display mm/dd/yyyy and it doesn't it displays dd/mm/yyyy. If I use the item.format = "%m/%d/%y" then the drop down calendar returns an error.

Does anyone have an answer? Should I create a new thread?

Thanks.

Hello,
 
Just reviewing some old posts...
 
Make sure the code reads as follows...
 
Item.Format = "%m/%d/%Y"
Note that the 'Y' is capitalized.
 
Doing this, we get the date value to read 01/31/2007.
 
======================================
 
With that being said, I would like for the date format options to be more robust in future updates to the property grid, allowing for custom formats.
 
We prefer showing dates in our programs with the format of "dd-mmm-yyyy" which produces dates in the following format...01-Jan-2007. 
 
This is helpful because 01/09/2007 could be either January 9 or confused with September 1.
 
Best regards,
 
John
