I'm trying to use a date/time converter on an xp:link to convert the label to dateStyle="short". However, the date is still showing in the default "Jul 15, 2011" format.
From the Java being generated, it looks like the converter is being applied to the result, comparing with a computed text control which is working fine. However, I notice the setConverter method originates in the UIOutput class, and is not extended by the XspOutputLink or UIOutputLink classes. Does this mean it's trying to apply the converter to the value property of the Link, in the same way the converter is applied to the value property of the Computed Text control?
If so, it seems a bit strange to add a converter on the URL being mapped to. I cannot see a viable use case for applying a converter to the value property of a link, but can see many for a converter being applied to the text property.
