Hi All

Is there a way at design time (Preferably in the Aspx page, not code behind) to set the format of the selected date to dd mmm yyyy.

I've seen a way to do it with a client side event.

Hello Andy,

The problem is that the page parser itself is unable to convert the SelectedDate to another format:
<asp:Calendar runat="server" ID="Calendar1" SelectedDate="29/3/2007" /> 

Error: Cannot create an object of type 'System.DateTime' from its string representation '29/3/2007' for the 'SelectedDate' property.

Best regards,
