Change date format and validation

I can't find a way to change the date format, its validation and database insert/update from 07/02/2012 to 02.07.2012 (mm/dd/yyyy to dd.mm.yyyy).

Thx for any help in advance

the database will store the date using the format Y-m-d h:m:s

to enter and display the date in a differant formation, you will need to edit the code on the page.


for example, on the update page, the code for a date picker element will be:

php:
<input id="ProductEndDate" name="ProductEndDate" type="text" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("productsupdate","ProductEndDate"):"".(($row_WADAProducts["ProductEndDate"])?date("m/d/Y",strtotime($row_WADAProducts["ProductEndDate"])):"")."")); ?>" class="formTextfield_Medium" tabindex="11" onBlur="hideServerError('ProductEndDate_ServerError');">




this portion of the code:

php:
date("m/d/Y",strtotime($row_WADAProducts["ProductEndDate"]))



displays the date using m/d/Y as the format. to change the format to dd.mm.yyyy the code would be:

php:
date("d.m.Y",strtotime($row_WADAProducts["ProductEndDate"]))



to change the format used by the date picker element, select it in design view, and click the edit button in the property inspector, you can edit the format used in the date picker settings.

With this solution I still get an 'invalid format' validation error when I change the date in the date picker.

I have also formatted the spry validation to:

var newsdatum_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("newsdatum_Spry", "date",{ format:'d.m.Y' , validateOn:["blur"]});

So all dates look like: 30.12.2012

But I still receive an "Invalid format." error on validation. I've attached the page

should be:
format:'dd.mm.yyyy'
