Date Settings

This configuration should cover over 90% of the use cases for Date Formatting in DCM. Exceptions are Grid Export, Reports, etc., because it can't use JS Date Format to render on the backend.

By default, this configuration is based on Language localization settings (Setup → Localization → Date Settings), and if your solution uses multiple languages, different users will have different date formatting. But if your solution has to use fixed standards of date formatting, use the ExtJS format.

These settings are saved on the DCM Registry and can be modified using this UI or right on the Registry.
