The datepicker has a very nice option to format your date for instance to show as "Wednesday 3 october":
In Datagrids, this option is also available. Great.
In a listview and in a dataview, in the text-widget, when adding a parameter to the text, you can only select an attribute, but you can not format it.
Make the parameter-selection more intelligent thereby including more formatting options.
As a result of this we regularly create an extra attribute (here FormattedStringDay) in the entity so we can prefill it with the string that we to show. A workaround that has as sideeffect that the entity gets polluted with extra and redundant fields.
Because of that this idea: "Add formatting options to the parameters in text-widgets in a dataview and listview"
Great! Good thing my camera is switched of because I just did a very awkward little dance.
This is possible since Mx 7.15!
