TOPIC: date format not changed on new task/event window

date format not changed on new task/event window 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
Hi all

On my Fedora 14 i386 machine I changed through the advanced option the date format to the British one and this worked for some interface displays (e.g. To Do window), but this has no effect on the new task/event windows (i.e. the ones you get when trying to add a task/event).

The version is 2.9 (b111). In fact I am now realising there's no such problem with the beta version I use on my Arch 64, so maybe it's just a matter of time, but would a developer care to look at the issue?

Related to this, I in fact changed the date format to %d %b %Y rather than %d/%m/%Y in the working beta version and the new task window comes up with %d/%m/%Y. It would be nice to see that changed to %d %b %Y. I'm getting rather confused with various formats and would rather see the month in alphabet.

The date controls are native to the operating system so Rainlendar cannot change the formatting in them. The date format comes directly from the operating system so you would have to change the regional settings in your OS (not sure how to do that in Linux though). Note that the format also depends on the locale of the application which in Rainlendar is defined by language you have selected in the options.

Thanks well I don't know how I didn't think of that possibility... I changed the locale to a British one and it works kind of fine (dd/mm/yyyy format).

I would still have thought that it would be nice to have a flexibility (regardless of the locale) in the date format in New Task window. Surely this is possible...
