Bug related to current culture

Feb 13, 2012 at 8:28 PM

My site is running in the nl-NL culture, where dates are formatted like: 31-01-2012 (dd-MM-yyyy).

However, the Date picker populates the input field with a date format like: 01/31/2012 (MM/dd/yyyy).

When saving the change, the DateTimeFieldDriver will not be able to parse the en-GB format, as it expects a nl-NL format.

Can I add my name to this bug:

Ausrtalia uses same date format dd/mm/yyy and am getting errors continually having to manually change the mm/dd/yyyy format returned from the editor

This is fixed in current 1.x branch.

Can I ask ...

I have a viewmodel with a field

        [Display(Name="Date of Birth"),UIHint("Date")]
    public DateTime DOB { get; set; }


  • @Html.EditorFor(m=>m.DOB)
  • but I'm not getting the datepicker?

    Doesn't work like this ... this is pure MVC and technically it could be possible but you will have to do it by yourself.

    Well then cant I create a edit template and call the datepicker?

     Ive been currently using the telerik control since the date format issues

    @using Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI
    @model DateTime?
    @(Html.Telerik().DatePickerFor(m => m)
          .HtmlAttributes(new { id = ViewData.TemplateInfo.GetFullHtmlFieldName(string.Empty) + "_wrapper" })

    I have the same issue. I am using version 1.0. Has it been fixed in that one?

    i beleive its only the 1.4 1.x branch?

    oh right. I am on Orchard 1.3 using Datetime field version 1.0. So, not fixed in this one I am guessing...

    Any workaround?
