When setting the date/time field type to "calculated - read only" and runtime property to "current date/time" the generated display is always in the following format: YYYY-MM-DD H:MM:SS. I can not change the display property as I can when the property is set to "user entered - optional" I would like only the date to be rendered, but can not accomplish that. PLEASE help. Alan Stein
Not sure how you created the field. In the object library under the custom group there is a Current Date field object. It's basically a text field that has some script behind it. Drop it on your form and instead of setting the runtime property, leave the "Calculation Script" radio button selected. It should display the date as M/D/YY, in the format of the selected locale. If you need to use a different format then you need to change the script that's automatically generated behind the scenes (it'll be in the ready:layout event for the field). BTW, selecting Runtime Property also generates a script, it's just different and formats the date as you see it. Either way you need to modify the script to change it.
If you need help with the scripting, post the format that you want the date in.
THANK YOU very much. I will try selecting from the custom group. I don't
know anything about scripting, but the format that I would prefer is simply
