We have an urgent problem with the dates in our web forms showing in US format on all our computers. Even when the browser language settings are set to English - UK and the PC time zone and location are set to UK. It is critical we resolve this issue as our clients are required to enter their date of birth for visa application processes and any confusion/mistakes will be detrimental to our projects. Selecting the date format using the pc or browser language settings is also flawed as many UK computers and browsers have default US language settings. We also need to provide help text to ensure the client enters their data correctly but cannot do so if the format may change between users.
I don't understand why there is not a simple way to resolve this problem? There should be a simple way to select the preferred date format within the app template or the web form generator.
