Changing dd-mm-yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy

I need to change the accepted date format and the output format to be able to store the data in my database.

How can I do this or do I need the PRO version?

You should just revise file calendar1.js. To change input format line 101 is changed from:

var arr_date = str_date.split('-');


var arr_date = str_date.split('/');

To alter output format lines 69 and 70 ( cal_gen_date1 function body) are changed from:

(dt_datetime.getDate() < 10 ? '0' : '') + dt_datetime.getDate() + "-"
+ (dt_datetime.getMonth() < 9 ? '0' : '') + (dt_datetime.getMonth() + 1) + "-"


(dt_datetime.getDate() < 10 ? '0' : '') + dt_datetime.getDate() + "/"
+ (dt_datetime.getMonth() < 9 ? '0' : '') + (dt_datetime.getMonth() + 1) + "/"

Date Formats

Hi there,

Different Databases have different formats. Like Oracle prefers:


MySQL prefers YYYY-MM-DD

Perhaps we can set one object to detect the requirement and then where to append the necessary formatting and return of values in calender1/calender2.js files?

This approach is already implemented in PRO version of the product. It has separate files for date conversion routines. Numerous date format filters come with the package. You just need to link the one you need. This can be done dynamically.

Note: Yes, you can switch different date formats on the client-side, but this isn't very good idea: before passing any data to database you should validate it on the server side for security and robustness reasons. Having different date formats requires different validators on the server side. Better idea is to stick to some format dates are passed to server side and convert them to format database accepts after the validation.
