Date format of drop-down calendar in text field

Question asked by ysun on Dec 20, 2011

I have a text field where I display the drop-down calendar to help with the entering of dates. I cannot format the field as a date field, because the users need to enter vague dates like "End of january" as well as "31.1.2012".

 

Now the dropdown calendar always enters in the format "31/1/2012" when I really need "31.1.2012". Is there a way to get it to change the format? Thank you.

 

PS: I repeat, the field is a *text* field and I cannot format it as a date field.
