Is there a way to format the date in the results of a custom query? I have the date selected from the table as Date, but then in the control on the page where I'm using the query, $Date returns the date in a format I don't want on that page, and things like $Date.Nice and $Date.format(M) all return nothing.

$customQueryObj->Date = DBField::create('Date', $customQueryObj->Date);

I don't understand what you're trying to say. Where are you suggesting I put that?

Your custom query returns the date as a string. You will need to iterate the results of your query and reapply the date object to your date value before you return the data to the template.

Hi ya,

Not sure if this is what you're after,

when i've got a data object page and i've wanted to get the short month of a date so used

public function getMonth() {
      return $this->obj('CalloutDate')->ShortMonth();
   }

this then meant i could use $CalloutDate.ShortMonth on the template in the control.

you can do the same for nice.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into this and see if I can get it working properly.

I experimented with this at length, couldn't get it to work, decided to leave it alone awhile, came back to it, still can't get it to work.
