Format Data

Many elements have a Format attribute that lets you specify how its data will be formatted. The most common of these, for example, is the Label element. Applying formatting to a Label caption is especially useful for dates, times, and certain types of numbers.

Logi Studio is not always context-sensitive when it comes to the options available for Format attributes, so it may be possible to select formatting options that are not appropriate for the data.

Many of the formatting types available are dependent on the Regional settings in the web server's operating system.


For example, as shown above, Regional and Language options are available on Windows-based web servers through the Control Panel. The "Currency", "Short date" and "Long date" formats defined here can be used by name in a Format attribute.
