- To display a date, datetime or time column in a DataWindow, we use the properties editMask and format.
- For example: If you set the French format "dd/MM/yyyy" for a date or datetime column, it will display 25/07/2015.
- In this case, the format is "hard-coded". If the application is deployed on a US machine, you will get the French format and not the US format which is MM/dd/yyyy.
- The same problem can happen with time columns: some countries are using 24hours time, others, like US, use 12hours format (ex. 06:30 PM).
