Date format on case list and detail

Can somebody tell me how I change the way the date is formatted for the
case list and case detail on an android tablet? Would like for example
10-Sep-2000 rather than 10/09/00.

Second point is that the format is different in the case list (YYYY/MM/DD)
versus (DD/MM/YYYY). Hopefully the answer to the first question will allow
me to to change both to my desired output above.

Many thanks

Hi,

There are two things you should do:

  • Set the format to “Date” in the case list and case detail configuration
    when building your app
  • Set the Android tablet’s date format in the Android settings menu

Thanks
Sheel

Thanks Sheel for you suggestion.

The solution is actually:

Use a selected date e.g. DOB and create a subsequent hidden value and
format according to the following rules. Very helpful to avoid confusion
with american v british date formats

format-date

  • *Behavior: *Will change the format of a date for display
  • Return: Returns a string conversion of the provided date.
  • *Arguments: * the date to be converted, and a string describing how it
    should be formatted. The syntax for the display format string is below
  • ‘%Y’ = year
    • ‘%y’ = 2 digit year
    • ‘%m’ = 0-padded month
    • ‘%n’ = numeric month
    • ‘%b’ = short text month (Jan, Feb, etc)
    • ‘%d’ = 0-padded day of month
    • ‘%e’ = day of month
    • ‘%H’ = 0-padded hour (24 hour time)
    • ‘%h’ = hour (24 hour time)
    • ‘%M’ = 0-padded minutes
    • ‘%S’ = 0-padded second
    • ‘%3’ = 0-padded milliseconds
    • ‘%a’ = three letter short text day (Sun, Mon, etc)
    • ‘short’ = the date will be formatted based on the user’s current
      language and phone settings
    • ‘nepali’ = displays the date in the Nepali calendar
  • Syntax: format-date(date_to_convert, display_format_string)
  • *Example: * When you are displaying a date in the display text, its
    useful to format it in a manner that is readable for your end users (the
    default is YYYY-MM-DD). Some examples
  • format-date(date(/data/my_date), “%e/%n/%y”) will return a date that
    looks like D/M/YY
    • format-date(date(/data/my_date), “%a, %e %b %Y”) will return a date
      that looks like Sun, 7 Apr 2012.
    • format-date(now(), ‘%y/%n/%e - %H:%M:%S’) will return the current
      date and time in the format YY/M/D - HH:MM:SS
··· -
  format-date(now(), '%H:%M:%S') will return the current time in the 
  format HH:MM:SS

Hi,

Can somebody help me, about calendar use? I want to use local
calendar(Nepali) in my form like DoB, because it will be easy to form fill
up. Interviewers want to easy way. Respondents give the answer DoB and Age

Hi Sanu,
I’ve used that function in one of my own forms, it’s pretty
straightforward, the wiki page is here
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Alternate+Calendar+Formats+for+CommCare+Android,
but do remember that the data will be stored in Gregorian format so if you
display it later you’ll need to be sure to set the appearance to Nepali
again.

Best Regards,

Derek

Hi Sanu,

Have you read about using Display Conditions
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Display+Conditions+Overview
in
the CommCare form builder?

Generally speaking the way to build the logic you are describing is to set
the display condition for Question 11 to be “not(#form/question10 = ‘10’)”

Hi Sanu,
I’ve used that function in one of my own forms, it’s pretty
straightforward, the wiki page is here
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Alternate+Calendar+Formats+for+CommCare+Android,
but do remember that the data will be stored in Gregorian format so if you
display it later you’ll need to be sure to set the appearance to Nepali
again.

Best Regards,

Derek

Thanks Sheel for you suggestion.

The solution is actually:

Use a selected date e.g. DOB and create a subsequent hidden value and
format according to the following rules. Very helpful to avoid confusion
with american v british date formats

format-date

  • *Behavior: *Will change the format of a date for display

  • Return: Returns a string conversion of the provided date.

  • *Arguments: * the date to be converted, and a string describing
    how it should be formatted. The syntax for the display format string is
    below

  • ‘%Y’ = year

    • ‘%y’ = 2 digit year
    • ‘%m’ = 0-padded month
    • ‘%n’ = numeric month
    • ‘%b’ = short text month (Jan, Feb, etc)
    • ‘%d’ = 0-padded day of month
    • ‘%e’ = day of month
    • ‘%H’ = 0-padded hour (24 hour time)
    • ‘%h’ = hour (24 hour time)
    • ‘%M’ = 0-padded minutes
    • ‘%S’ = 0-padded second
    • ‘%3’ = 0-padded milliseconds
    • ‘%a’ = three letter short text day (Sun, Mon, etc)
    • ‘short’ = the date will be formatted based on the user’s
      current language and phone settings
    • ‘nepali’ = displays the date in the Nepali calendar
  • Syntax: format-date(date_to_convert, display_format_string)

  • *Example: * When you are displaying a date in the display text,
    its useful to format it in a manner that is readable for your end users
    (the default is YYYY-MM-DD). Some examples

  • format-date(date(/data/my_date), “%e/%n/%y”) will return a date
    that looks like D/M/YY

    • format-date(date(/data/my_date), “%a, %e %b %Y”) will return
      a date that looks like Sun, 7 Apr 2012.
    • format-date(now(), ‘%y/%n/%e - %H:%M:%S’) will return the
      current date and time in the format YY/M/D - HH:MM:SS

    format-date(now(), ‘%H:%M:%S’) will return the current time in
    the format HH:MM:SS

Hi,

There are two things you should do:

  • Set the format to “Date” in the case list and case detail
    configuration when building your app
  • Set the Android tablet’s date format in the Android settings menu

Thanks

Can somebody tell me how I change the way the date is formatted for
the case list and case detail on an android tablet? Would like for example
10-Sep-2000 rather than 10/09/00.

Second point is that the format is different in the case list
(YYYY/MM/DD) versus (DD/MM/YYYY). Hopefully the answer to the first
question will allow me to to change both to my desired output above.

Many thanks
