to force the date picker to return the date formatted as dd-mm-yy, look for javascript code similar to this:

$(function(){
$('#Appointment_request_group_Best_day').datepicker({
changeMonth: true,
changeYear: true,
onClose: closeDatePicker_Appointment_request_group_Best_day
});
});



and add 'dateFormat: 'dd-mm-y',' just after the 'changeYear: true,' line:

$(function(){
$('#Appointment_request_group_Best_day').datepicker({
changeMonth: true,
changeYear: true,
dateFormat: 'dd-mm-y',
onClose: closeDatePicker_Appointment_request_group_Best_day
});
});




you will also need to change the line that initializes the spry element:

var Appointment_request_group_Best_day_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("Appointment_request_group_Best_day_Spry", "date", {validateOn:["blur"]});




to:

var Appointment_request_group_Best_day_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("Appointment_request_group_Best_day_Spry", "date", {validateOn:["blur"], format:'dd-mm-yy'});

I have 5 instances of this in my code. Should I add the code you suggest after each one?

My code is:

$(function(){
$('#Wedding_Date').datepicker({
changeMonth: true,
changeYear: true,
onClose: closeDatePicker_Wedding_Date
});
});

this would mean you have 5 date pickers on the page, each instance of the code should be for a specific date picker, you will need to edit all 5 instances for them to all use the same date format.

Changed this and it now shows up as 10-05-12 but says 'Invalid format.' underneath and will not allow the form to send.

well, like i posted initially, you also need to edit the Spry validation lines to tell the spry validation to allow the new format.

This works but...

This worked for me. I was having trouble getting the date picker to work with a mySQL database, which requires the date format to be yyyy/mm/dd. Date picker defaults to mm/dd/yyyy and mySQL rejects it. The solution in this thread allowed me to reformat the date, but is there a way to change the date format in the CSS Form extension so that I don't have to edit the code every time? Thanks!
