I have read as many of the post surrounding this issue that I could find and still have no clue as to whether there is a solution that has been supplied for what seems to be a simple enough request. I simple want the DatePicker to format the date as dd/MM/yyyy (Culture en-IE), yet the validation keeps throwing this error. Here's what I have and maybe someone out there can suggest more things to try.
And my resulting screen shot is attached.
What am I missing to get this working? It should not be this difficult!!!
