   Modify Date format in Pronto! 4

Question 

How can I modify the Pronto! 4 interface such that the date format changes from DD/MM/YY to MM/DD/YY?

Answer 

The process is to create a custom skin file (strings.data) and modify the 'numericDate" string from the "DatePictures" dictionary. The custom strings.data should be uploaded then to the corresponding skin. So, this would mean you need to create a custom skin called Pronto4 on the 'Users | Skins' page of the web administrative interface and upload the file there.

This process is outlined in the following video: https://mail.communigate.com/~jolson/screencasts/ChangeDateFormatPronto4.mp4

Here is what the DatePictures dictionary from strings.data looks like before and after the modifications:

Before (with date format as DD/MM/YY):

  DatePictures    = {
    Mon    = "Mon";    Tue    = "Tue";    Wed="Wed";    Thu    = "Thu";    Fri    = "Fri";    Sat    = "Sat";    Sun    = "Sun";
    Jan    = "Jan";    Feb    = "Feb";    Mar= "Mar";    Apr    = "Apr";    May    = "May";    Jun    = "Jun";
    Jul    = "Jul";    Aug    = "Aug";    Sep="Sep";    Oct    ="Oct";    Nov    = "Nov";    Dec    = "Dec";

    timeOnly    = "^h:^m:^s^t";
    hourMinute    = "^h:^m^t";
    dateOnly    = "^D ^M, ^Y";
    numericDate    = "^D/^N/^y";
    dayAndDateAndTime    = "^W, ^D ^M, ^Y ^h:^m:^s^t";
    dayAndDate    = "^W, ^D ^M, ^Y";
    dateAndTime    = "^D ^M, ^Y ^h:^m:^s^t";
    dayAndMonthAndTime    = "^D ^M ^h:^m:^s^t";
    dayAndMonthDate    = "^W, ^D ^M";
    yearMonth    = "^M ^y";
    never    = "Never";
    weekend    = "Weekend";
    weekday    = "Week Days";
    everyday    = "Every Day";
  };

After (with date format as MM/DD/YY):

DatePictures    = {
    Mon    = "Mon";    Tue    = "Tue";    Wed="Wed";    Thu    = "Thu";    Fri    = "Fri";    Sat    = "Sat";    Sun    = "Sun";
    Jan    = "Jan";    Feb    = "Feb";    Mar= "Mar";    Apr    = "Apr";    May    = "May";    Jun    = "Jun";
    Jul    = "Jul";    Aug    = "Aug";    Sep="Sep";    Oct    ="Oct";    Nov    = "Nov";    Dec    = "Dec";

    timeOnly    = "^h:^m:^s^t";
    hourMinute    = "^h:^m^t";
    dateOnly    = "^M ^D, ^Y";
    numericDate    = "^N/^D/^y";
    dayAndDateAndTime    = "^W, ^M ^D, ^Y ^h:^m:^s^t";
    dayAndDate    = "^W, ^M ^D, ^Y";
    dateAndTime    = "^M ^D, ^Y ^h:^m:^s^t";
    dayAndMonthAndTime    = "^M ^D ^h:^m:^s^t";
    dayAndMonthDate    = "^W, ^M ^D";
    yearMonth    = "^M ^y";
    never    = "Never";
    weekend    = "Weekend";
    weekday    = "Week Days";
    everyday    = "Every Day";
  };
