Changing the Date Format in the Update Page

Jason:

Following your suggestions some time ago, DW now accepts and displays the date format dd-mm-yyyy in most WADA pages (i.e., insert, delete, details, etc.) but not in the Update page.

The line of code" <?php echo(date("d.m.Y", strtotime($row_WADAoxadmain['regDate']))); ?> allows user to enter dates in the Insert page with the dd-mm-yyyy format, and the line of code <?php echo(str_replace('"', '&quot;', $row_WADAoxadmain['regDate'])); ?> seems to be the one that stores the new dates in the Update page.

Is there any way to combine both lines of code (or any other way) so that users can enter dates in the dd-mm-yyyy format in the Update page?

Thank you for your attention

This code displays the date on the page:

php:
<input type="text" name="regDate" id="regDate" value="<?php echo(str_replace('"''&quot;'$row_WADAoxadmain['regDate'])); ?>" size="12" />



you can use the date() function to change the format of the date that is displayed:

php:
<input type="text" name="regDate" id="regDate" value="<?php echo(str_replace('"''&quot;'date("d.m.Y",strtotime($row_WADAoxadmain['regDate'])))); ?>" size="12" />





at line 1 you have this code to convert the date top Y-m-d format:

php:
<?php 

if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     { 
  
$_POST['dateReg'] = "".((isset($_POST["dateReg"]))?date("Y-m-d"strtotime($_POST["dateReg"])):"")  .""

?>



that is incorrect for this form since the form element being used is named "regDate" not "dateReg", you need to edit that code to use the correct form element name:

php:
<?php 

if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     { 
  
$_POST['regDate'] = "".((isset($_POST["regDate"]))?date("Y-m-d"strtotime($_POST["regDate"])):"")  .""

?>
