I didn't find any possibility to specify a format for a date in an input box. Is this possible at all? As far as I can see the format depends on the language setting (en: MM/dd/yyyy, de: dd.MM.yyyy).

On the other hand, when I output a date in a text element, I have to specify a fix format. Am I right?

If I am right, I may have two different date formats on one MashApp. That's what I wanted to avoid.

Any comments?

Indeed, at user input fields the pattern to convert a text into a date is fixed. But there is calendar popup to select the date.

the calendar popup is fine. However, after selecting a day, this day is displayed either in English format (09/16/2011) or in German format (16.09.2011), depending on the language setting.

When I output this or any other date e.g. in a Text element, I have to choose a fix date format for that. When I choose MM/dd/yyyy for a Text element and an English language setting, the formats in Input box and Text element are equal. However, when I switch to a German language setting and don't change the Text element, I have dd.MM.yyyy (16.09.2011) in the Input box and on the Text element there is MM/dd/yyyy (09/16/2011). According to usability rules, the date format on a screen must be equal. Wouldn't this be an argument to allow a date format for the Input box?

English: German:

Here is my example. I have yyyy-MM-dd on the Text element.
