Display format of date field in Display Mode when stored in Repeating Section

Jump to solution

Hi Everyone,

 

First use of a Repeating Section today, can anyone please advise how I can get a date field to display correctly in display mode when the data is stored in a Repeating Section?

Edit mode displays fine:

Thanks.

Hi,

In general nothing needs to be done to make the date display correctly, it just works out of the box.
Are you connecting the Repeating section to a column in SharePoint or is it unbound?
What build of Nintex forms are you using?
Are you able to provide an export of the form for testing.

Hi Simon,

 

The Repeating Section is connected to a Multi Line Text field in a SP2013 List (got this from instructional video mentioned below).

 

The Repeating Section contains a "People" control, a "Calculated Value" control, and this "Date/Time" control (date only). The People and Calc Value controls are displaying fine in Display and Edit modes.

 

From the instructional video I watched, only the Repeating Section was "Connected To" the SP List, and not the idividual items within the Repeating Section. Is this correct?

 

SP2013 and Nintex 2013

Yes this is correct.
Is the column in SharePoint configured as Plain text?

Can you provide a sample of what the XML looks like in the column?

@dean_white ...I've tested and it's working fine for me....I didn't have to make any changes in the configurations. Could you please try to move date control out of repeating section and then test it? If it's working fine then try to move it back inside RepSec or else add a new one. My test's screenshot is below:

@dean_white ....sometimes when you move the control outside or inside of another controls or if they touch the borders with adjacent controls then it happens like this....also sometimes even rules won't work properly too.
