Subject Antwort: Re: formatting problems with dates in flow-jxpath selection-list
Date Thu, 20 Jul 2006 10:11:53 GMT
Hi Mark

I finally used the jxpath selection-list with datatype='string' for both 
label and value. I changed my flowscript to:

var formatter = new FastDateFormat.getInstance("dd.MM.yyyy"); 
var elementLabel = null;
var elementValue = null;
max = g_orderForm.getWishDate().size();
g_listData.wishDate = new Array(max);
iter = g_orderForm.getWishDate().iterator();
i = 0; 
while(iter.hasNext()) {
        element =;
        elementLabel = formatter.format(element).toString();
        elementValue = element.toString(); 
        g_listData.wishDate[i] = {value:elementValue, label:elementLabel};

It works perfect! Thank you for the hint!

Regards, Stefan

I don't think it does... AFAIK you have to use Java.

I default to FastDateFormat from Commons:
