Setting Language Date Properties

The Properties page of the Language Builder and the Language Manager allows you to set the date format for each language in your application.

A language’s date format properties are established through the appropriate SET commands when an application is executed or when the current language is changed.

·       Date Format: The Date Format field lets you specify the format for the display of Date and DateTime expressions. The format you select is used in a SET DATE TO command when your application runs.

·       Date Separator: The Date Separator field lets you specify a delimiter for the display of date expressions through the SET MARK TO command. When you select a Date Format, the delimiter defaults to the delimiter associated with your selection. When you then specify a Date Separator, the default delimiter is replaced by your separator selection.

Tip: See your Visual FoxPro Help file for documentation of the SET DATE TO and SET MARK TO commands.
