Use the Date / Time Formatter builder to control the display of fields in a form that contain a date, time, or date-time value.
You can use the Date / Time Formatter builder to specify the date and time formats to use for the entire model. When necessary, you can override the global date and time formats created by this builder by using a Data Field Modifier builder to format individual date and time fields on a form.
If you store all the dates, times, and date-time values in a variable that is always of type date (time, or datetime), it is not necessary to enter anything into the Date / Time Formatter Fields table. This builder simply reads the variable type and formats the contents accordingly.
Default display format
The Date / Time Formatter builder declares the default display format to be used for date, time, and date-time fields in a model. A default RDD file that is defined in your project also declares the default format for these fields. The default RDD file has precedence. In the standard configuration for new projects, the related fields in the Date / Time Formatter have no effect because of the default RDD file.
If you have a default RDD file defined in your project, the Date Format
, Time Format
, and DateTime Format
inputs in this builder are not available.
