Need Help with Date

Avatar

Level 2

I have never been able to get this issue to work satisfactory.  Any help would be great.  I need a date field in the MM/DD/YYYY format that will automatically fill our and enter the slashes when the user enters information.  For instance if they enter 6291978 the script will automatically enter it as 06/29/1978.   I need it to read and enter any leading zeros and to automatically enter the slashes.  thanks in advance.

In the properties of the Date Field select the patterns and place the below text..

Display Pattern: date{MM/DD/YYYY}

Edit Pattern: date{MMDDYYYY}

If the entered value does not match the Edit pattern, the field does not translate to the Display pattern.

Thanks

that seems to be a more helpful way to do things.  However, I am still at a loss if they do not enter the beginning zeros for dates...such as for 5/5/1970...if they do not enter 05/05/1970 it will not format it correctly.  Thank you for taking the time.

Just change the Edit Pattern little bit.. This can help.

     Edit Pattern: date{M/D/YYYY}

Thanks
