    Date format changed in UI

    Not sure this is NT related. When selecting dates, such as on opening a chart or in the strategy analyzer, I used to see the format dd-mm-yy, now it suddenly changed to mm/dd/yyyy. Was there a platform update?

    Only thing I can think of is I set the Windows clock to sync with time.microsoft.com. But then cancelled it, and tried different date/time/locale settings in Windows, it didn't change the format in NT.

    How can I get it back to show dd-mm-yy?

    Thanks.

    Hello digibob,

    Thank you for your post.

    NinjaTrader will use the formatting set by Windows.

    If you are using Windows 10 you may adjust the formatting using the steps below:
    • Close down NinjaTrader
    • Right-click on your clock on your Windows Taskbar
    • Select 'Adjust Time/Date'
    • Next Select 'Date, Time, & regional settings'
    • Then 'Change data formats'
    • Select the desired setting for the 'Short date' option
    • Closeout the window and reopen NinjaTrader
    Then for Windows 7 I have included a publicly available link on the same process:

      Hi Spencer. Thank you for your reply. I did all that before and it didn't help. I tried it again now and strangely, the date format in strategy analyzer has finally reverted to dd-mm-yy (good) while the Data Series window on opening a chart continues to show mm/dd/yyyy (not good). How come the difference?

        Hello digibob,

        Thank you for your reply.

        It appears that this window is hardcoded to only display as mm/dd/yyyy.

        I have submitted this as a feature request to the Development Team to follow the same settings as Windows similar to the Strategy Analyzer window I will follow up with an internal tracking number for your reference as soon as it is created.

        Thanks in advance for your patience.

          Thanks, Spencer. It's odd, I could swear I worked before with dd-mm-yy format in the chart data series window. My memory fails me it seems.

            Here's a hint: when clicking New > Chart to open a new chart, the dates format is mm/dd/yyyy. When opening the same window for an existing chart, the dates format is dd-mm-yy.
            I knew I saw it before.

            What happens is I can't copy-paste a date from an existing chart to a new one, because the format is different!

            In addition this window is not the only one with the date format hardcoded. Playback dates ignore the Windows setting too. So I can't copy-paste there either!

            How about simply letting all the dates throughout the platform use the format set in the OS. That would solve the mess.

              I have clarified this to the Development Team to ensure have all dates within the platform to follow the OS settings.
