Language Problem

Hi,
I need to display weekdays in German, also date like DD-MM-YYYY. Normally I would adjust this with LOCALE() but this does not seem to work. Is there a simple recipe to change settings for European styles / languages? And where do I have to change these settings?

Thank you

Are you working in php? If so you could possibly format the date inside of the data file. In the DynamicWebCharts > Data > <page name>_data1.php file you should see the date as either the xlabel or yvalue. If your chart is setup like this then you can wrap the date and strtotime functions around the value to format the data like this:

php:
<label><?php echo(date("d-m-Y"strtotime(<your ['XLABEL'value>))); ?></label>



This would format the date to be in the dd-mm-yyyy format. If you have trouble applying the formatting code I can take a look at it for you if you post back with a copy of this page.

yes, thanks

This works for me, thanks. Still, would be nice (as a suggestion) to have more flexible formatting options. Especially displaying date is so different in so many countries.
In Europe we very often have to create pages for several languages...

Thanks for the suggestion, I have logged a feature request for this so that it can be reviewed for a future release.
