If an attribute is of type DateTime, the default control on the right side is a Date Picker, however when I try to get the filtered expression, I get in this format: '8/21/2012 11:10:00 PM'

Is there a way we can customize this in the following (or any other format?): 21-AUG-2012 (I also don't need the time attribute)

Please let me know.

Hello,

Have you tried to format this DateTime with standard string.Format() methods for DateTime?

Hello Vlad,

Yes, we can use that for converting date into a valid format, however this happens only when we try to get the filtered expression.

What I really want is that once a date is picked, the picked value is being displayed in a text field. This value should appear in the format I want to see. Is there a possibility for this to happen out of the box?

Hi,

I am not sure what this text field is. Basically when you set the value to it, you can still format the value using string.Format(). If you bind the value, then you can apply formatting for the binding.
