    Question US Date Format in Calendar

    Advertisement



    I've seen this asked a few times before usually with the same outcome...

    Using the Dimension Today theme, in the calendar I see the items with US date format (mm/dd).
    I'm from Ireland and would love to get these into UK/Euro format (dd/mm). Almost all the answers to this question I've seen say 'it can't be done'. However some people seem to be stuck with UK format and some seem to be stuck with US format which means that it must be a setting somewhere.

    see blackberryforums.pinstack.com/35245-date_format_home_screen.html

    I've downloaded the theme builder and built my own theme, but this seems quite limited and I cannot see how it's possible to change the layout of the calendar items.

    If anyone has an answer to this I'd love to see it. I'll even give them a copy of my REM (the rock band) theme (if that's not a dis-incentive!!!)

    Regards,

    Re: US Date Format in Calendar

    I've seen it suggested to change the input language to English (UK). I have no idea if this works, because no one responded to that suggestion. If that helps, let us know. Sorry I don't have any other ideas at the moment.

    The today plus theme does use the DD/MM format.

    Re: US Date Format in Calendar

    My phone is set to English (United Kingdom)
    Downloaded the BB Dimension Today Plus theme and it is showing the dates as UK format (dd/mm)

    Where can I download an alternative version of the BB Dimension Today theme - which has been verified by someone as showing UK dates - it does exist as mentioned in the link in the original post.

    Or where can I check the version (locale?) of my BB Dimension Today theme?

    I'm still struggling...but thanks for the suggestions - at least I have verified it is theme based.

    Alternatively, when I choose a new theme in Theme Builder, where can I get more base themes - or can I edit the base themes to specify UK format dates? Is there a forum for theme building?

    Thanks again - at least I have one working UK format theme
