Format date in textbox input widget

Format date in textbox input widget

  
I'm loading a date into a textbox that's attached to a Calendar widget.  The Calendar widget has its output date formatted so that it'll show up as MM-dd-YYYY, which is what I want.  

Is there any way to format the date in the textbox on the initial load so that it matches the format from the Calendar widget?
Hi Jared,

Check the DateFormat property of the Input_Calendar widget.

Follow the description:

Defaults to the date format defined in the server configuration. The defaults are "%Y-%m-%d" for Date and "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S" for DateTime
Supported date formats:
    %a abbreviated weekday name
    %A full weekday name
    %b abbreviated month name
    %B full month name
    %C century number
    %d the day of the month ( 00 .. 31 )
    %e the day of the month ( 0 .. 31 )
    %H hour ( 00 .. 23 )
    %I hour ( 01 .. 12 )
    %j day of the year ( 000 .. 366 )
    %k hour ( 0 .. 23 )
    %l hour ( 1 .. 12 )
    %m month ( 01 .. 12 )
    %M minute ( 00 .. 59 )
    %n a newline character
    %p "PM" or "AM"
    %P "pm" or "am"
    %S second ( 00 .. 59 )
    %s number of seconds since Epoch (since Jan 01 1970 00:00:00 UTC)
    %t a tab character
    %U, %W, %V the week number5
    %u the day of the week ( 1 .. 7, 1 = MON )
    %w the day of the week ( 0 .. 6, 0 = SUN )
    %y year without the century ( 00 .. 99 )
    %Y year including the century ( ex. 1979 )
    %% a literal % character

You can also try to use masks, or format the source value of the input widget on preparation before the page is rendered.

Hope it helps.
