Hi all,
As you can tell from my numinous post, I fumble around a lot here. Please forgive me in the abundance of my dumb questions.

I have a date field in the DOM table but it always shows the date like "2010-10-05", how can I format to something else?

Easiest thing to do is create a custom getter..

public function getFormattedDate() {
return $this->obj('YourDateField')->Format('m-d-Y');

Then in your headings array, just use:

'FormattedDate' => 'Your date heading'
