Date Entry

Available only in Microsoft Windows environments, the date entry control provides a convenient way for users to enter date or time values. Depending on the format that you choose, the date entry may include a graphical calendar from which users can select a date.

Four standard date and time formats are listed for the Display Format property in the property sheet for the control. You can also enter a custom Display Format for the control, combining various date and time elements.

Note: Although the property sheet lists a Short-Date value format of YYMMDD, the actual Short-Date format is dependent on Windows operating system settings. See Control Types Reference for more information.

Some restrictions apply to the use of this control. See Control Types Reference for details about the styles and properties available for this control.
