i got a strange problem when formating Dates with setConfig("dateformat" ,....) It always substracts one Year of the given DateValue.
For example:
if the saved date is 01/01/2010 it will display as 01/01/2009
if the date is 01/01/2011 it will display as 01/01/2010 and so on...

$date1 = new DateField('RangeEnd','Range End',$this->RangeStartDate);

is that a bug or a feature ? ;) Or did i do something wrong ?

thanks in advance

just solved it. If there is somebody who got the same issue:

setConfig('dateformat','dd/MM/y') produces the correct Year value


setConfig('dateformat','dd/MM/Y') produces a wrong Year
