You can define different patterns for a date field, one for displaying, editing, validating and saving.

Use the Display pattern date{YYYY} and the Edit pattern date{DD/MM/YYYY}.


A few more tips about patterns are here: LiveCycle Blog: Flexible Datumseingabe durch Datumsmuster//Flexible input of dates with date pattern...

Hello Radzmar, Maybe you also know this one too.

I have a requirement, after successfully displaying the year, we have a field called year2. The value for year2 is filled by the formula year2 =year1 + 5

year1 is the previous year that is gotten from converted input date (DD/MM/YYYY has been converted to YYYY)

I have tried many formulas but they are not work anymore

Thank you.

with a short FormCalc script in the Year2 fields calculate event this won't be a problem:

if (not DateField1.isNull) then

    $ =  Sum(DateField1.formattedValue, 5)
