Summary0003181: TJvDateEdit - Econvert with message "19/19/2005" is not a valid date.
DescriptionWhen user enters date that it is different from system's date format(for example system's date format is dd/mm/yyyy but date from user is mm/dd/yyyy). This component causes a error 'Econvert with message "19/19/2005" is not a valid date.'
How can i do?

To work around, add an OnInvalidDate with the following code:
    NewDate := StrToDateFmt('mm/dd/yyyy', DateString);
    Accept := True;
  except on E: EConvertError do
    Accept := False;
You will need to add JvJCLUtils to your uses clause.

A better solution would be to add a 'DateFormatString' or 'FormatString' property which would change the format for all users regardless of locale settings. To make this fully useful, a 'PreferredDateFormat' property with possible values of (pdLocale, pdLocaleOnly, pdCustom, pdCustomOnly) and pdLocaleOnly as the default, in order to maintain backward compatibility.

enjoy life,

I assume there's no rush, since it was started in september last year. However, if you'd like it for the 3.2 release, let me know. :)

Now in CVS. The properties added are: DateFormat and DateFormatPreferred
