Change format of Calendar (J_Calendar)

Change format of Calendar (J_Calendar)

6 years 1 month ago #445 by Russell English

Is there anyway to change the format of the date that is created when selecting a date from the J_Calendar?

It appears to be in  DATE_FORMAT_LC4 , but I can't find this to create a content override

Hi Russell!

Long time no see. Hope this helps, it's Joomla Calendar Field standard behaviour:  docs.joomla.org/Calendar_form_field_type

I've tried editing the XML file, but it's not working correctly. Also, accourding to your wiki here www.component-creator.com/wiki/index.php...ndar_(Date_Selector) there should be a format option within the field editor in Component Creator, but there doesn't appear to be.

Any ideas please?

Hi Russel

For Joomla to be multilingual it has to store the date in a string called date_format_*, for that to be used it has to be converted from language file to string using JText class. Joomla calendar Field doesn't do that. To achieve that you would need to do your own calendar field (based on the joomla one) and convert that language string into the desired format.

Hope it helps

Thanks Andres, I've tried to change the date format (in the XML) to ="%d-%m-%Y" from here  docs.joomla.org/Calendar_form_field_type but for some reason, whenever the date is entered (using the component created by component-creator) and then saved, the date is saved as 000-00-00

I've tried this on several components as outputted by component-creator and they all give the same result.

Any ideas?
