Display value pattern - only default option presented

#1

Postby fronsky » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:11 am

I would like to change the presentation of a colomn field via Date/time options in a new form and set the value to "No value pattern text" instead of "Use system default". I can't select this option in the dropdown for the field. The designer only presents the default one.

I used this earlier with the same type of field in another form. And that worked. I can't see why this doesn't work in this work. Setting seem similar.

Do you see the ... button in the column properties panel? What do you see when you click on it?

Could it be that your table column is part of a component? If so, you won't be able to change its properties once deployed to a form.

Problem 'solved'. Interesting situation.

I'm working multi-screen, having the designer on a large external screen, fully exploded. When I select '....', the designer shows a popup window to configure date/time field options. All ok, but when I select the dropdown for 'Display value pattern text', the designer once displays the small selection list on the right top of my laptop and not on the external screen. I didn't notice and it also disappears and stays away after pressing the dropdown button in the popup.
