    Can I format the Date in the DateField Component

    I searched for posts on this component, but didn't really find anything on formatting it. I'm using FlashMX2004pro, and when I just drag the component onto the stage, it's default format is in "18 Jul 2005".

    All I want to do is reformt this date so that it stores and displays MM/DD/YYYY format.

    Can this be done? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I use this dateformat.as function by Darron Shall. Unfortunatly it isn't available on the site currently, surely just a minor glitch.

    Yes, this can be done. Flash explains how to do this in the help files. I did a search for datefield. Then look under using components.

    I found a function in the Help files, called Datefield.dateformatter, and it has a sample of what I want the date to look like:

    on (change) {
    dtfReceivedDate.dateFormatter = function(date){
    return d.getFullYear()+"/ "+(d.getMonth()+1)+"/ "+d.getDate();
    };

    }

    So I put this in the on change event of the component, but it doesn't work. Not sure where to put this? Any help is appreciated, thanks!!

    Yes, you can format the Date of DateField Component

    Just copy and paste below code on your DateField Component.....

    on (change) {
    trace("Date on change !");
    this.dateFormatter = function(date){
    //return date.getFullYear()+"/ "+(date.getMonth()+1)+"/ "+date.getDate();
    return getMonthAsString(date.getMonth()+1)+" "+date.getDate()+", "+date.getFullYear();
    };
    function getMonthAsString(month:Number):String {
    var monthNames_array:Array = new Array("Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec");
    return monthNames_array[month];
    }
    }

    It will show the Date in new format
