Bug in Date formatting?

Am i doing something wrong or is this actually a bug. The date should be in the time format as 08/06/2018 but for some reason it keeps showing up as 06/08/2018. I looked through the debugger and it should be working correctly but it still is not displaying right. Anyone see something I’m missing?

Ok, i figured it out. There is a special Date 2 formatting i guess that i needed to choose from. I am not sure why I would need to do that, but it worked. Just thought i would share just in case someone else needed it too. Im sure its in the forum somewhere already.


To clarify, is the intent that you want the date to show Day.Month.Year (European style - Date_2) versus Month/Day/Year (US style - Date)?

If so, that’s correct to use Date2 if you want to utilize an input for entering a date.

Ya, It is kind of annoying that i have to show a complete new input just to have European Style. There is no conditional formatting that allows me to adjust that. So i have to do a Show/Hide type of thing to get it to work in either format.

In this case, are you trying to use an input that the user can interact with or are you just trying to display a date?

If the latter, Bubble lets you format a date via formatted as > custom

They need to be able to interact with it. :slight_smile: Thanks for the response. I really appreciate it.

Ah, I get what you’re saying. You want to provide a better localization experience - ie European users see a European format, US users see a US format.

I agree that it would be nice if Bubble exposed the ability to toggle between date and date_2 on an input. :slight_smile:

Ya, i made my web app to be able to be translated in any language and to be used on any device. So any person anywhere around the world can use it with no problem. Sure is a challenge! :slight_smile:
