Language / Date & Time-format

Posted by smartsysISV on 01-Apr-2017 08:49

In PrivateCloud 4.4 i have this two lines in shares.properties:

# Default language code
DefaultLangCode=no
# Default date format index
DefaultDateFormat=0

Can anyone tell me wich alternative DateFormats thats exists?

When i login in the default language is still English....?

Default dateformat is "04/21/2017", but should have been "21.04.2017"

Default timeformat  is "10:00", but should have been "10.00" (dot instead of colon)

Why??

When I trye to get a timevalue ex:

var start="{!starttime#text}";

I get this in th correct value: "10.00" ("dot"), but when i try to set this value I need to use colon. Ex:

start = start.replace(".", ":");

TL["fromtime"]=start;

var newTLId = rbv_api.createRecord("timelines", TL);

What am i missing??

Hello Stein,

Is your user in the Master or in the tenant? [For the tenant zone you can specify the language during the tenant creation.]
Once logged in, can you check the user's language from "My Profile > My Settings" ?

Also, from My Localization Settings, check the DateFormat configured.
Initially, I had been seeing only 04/21/2016, etc also for the Norwegian user. But once I changed the user-level setting to use the dot-separated date components, it worked for me. (It still needs to be understood why this step was needed).

DefaultLangCode and DefaultDateFormat are only used for new records when no language selection is made or available.

It does not apply for existing users/tenants unless their language is not set.

The possible values for DefaultDateFormat are:

Value Format
0 MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm a
1 dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm
2 dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm
3 MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm
4 yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm
5 dd-MM-yyyy HH:mm
6 yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm
7 yyyy-MMM-dd HH:mm
8 MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss

One thing is the way date and time are displayed, another is how the database stores these values.

Internally, the database stores it as YYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss Timezone (timestamp field).

Thank you, I changed this to '2' and get the correct date-format in my System-Console.

But when I log in as 'Super-admin'/'Support' to one of my tenats, i get the english language (and dateformat) even if default language is 'no'.

How can I get this correct??
