Trouble with date extensions

Post by Joerg Hamacher » 12 Jun 2019, 17:43

Hi,
we are working on a German IBMi system.
In our 5250 applications date fields are normally edited in format DDMMYY and displayed in format DD.MM.YY

E.g. when opening a 5250 screen the date (input field) is displayed as 12.06.19
In aXes I define this field as date (date extension) - but when I open the screen in aXes no date is displayed in the date field box.
After selecting a date using the calendar a date is shown in the box. After pressing the ENTER-button the date box is empty again and our program triggers the error message that no valid date was entered.

dateFormatDisplay / Edit / Server are "ddmmyy".



What can be done?

Many thanks in advance,
Joerg
