DateTimePicker - inputOutputFormat

proso , August 09 2013


I'm using the DateTimePicker, but i'm stuck. It seems that in 'general -> DatePicker Settings' I can't get inputOutputFormat: 'j F Y' to work. Is this a bug? Is there a workaround?

P.S. format: 'd M Y' works, and gives me '9 august 2013'.


Hi proso,

If you are using Joomla! 1.6 or later then you should switch to the MooTools Datepicker as the MonkeyPhysics datepicker has not been upgraded to work with the more recent versions of MooTools.

The inputOutputFormat setting should work OK but is not visible unless you check the version of the date returned when the form is submitted.



Thanks, that works a littlebit different, but works perfectly.
