Calendar control

Is there a way to change the format the calendar control uses on the form? (currently it is mm/dd/yyyy)

DateFormat("dd/mm/yyyy") only changes the format given in the "Today:..." part when you open the control. When you select a date the result shown in the control is once again in the mm/dd/yyyy format.

Grateful for suggestions / Björn

Hello Björn
I tried with
Calendar1.Format="dd/mm/yyyy"
Works on the desktop, but not on my device (iPAQ hx4700).

Here is the code:

Sub App_Start
DateFormat("dd/mm/yyyy") 'this one doesn't make a difference
Form1.Show
End Sub

Sub Button1_Click
FirstTime=Date1.Value+TimeParse(Hour1.Text&":"&Min1.Text)
SecondTime=Date2.Value+TimeParse(Hour2.Text&":"&Min2.Text)
ResultTime=SecondTime-FirstTime
End sub

(dd/mm/yyyy is the default on my Pc)

all the best / Björn

Thank you Alfcen and Erel, that solves the problem.

Perhaps it could be added to the description of the Format keyword in the helpfile (for us with small imagination) :) ?

all the best / Björn

Erel,
This seems to work only on the PC. Well, that could be device dependent.

Dear Alfcen,

it does seem to be device dependent, at least it works on my Loox 720 (WM2003 SE).

all the best / Björn
