Date Format on IIS/Win2000/asp
Posted on 2002-03-10
I am developing using ASP.
I am aware of a problem with date format where you cannot predict whether the year format coming back form ASP/IIS is going to give 4 characters or just 2.
I have taken measures to ensure this does not cause me any difficulties
However, I have just switched from PWS and win 98 as my off-line dev environment, to win 2000/IIS5.
The problem is that running my web application locally I am seeing the date in the format mm/dd/yyyy when, being in the UK I would like to see it dd/mm/yyyy.
As stated before, the year format is coded for, but I suspected the dd/mm format could be set on the machine.
In control panel, Regional settings I have the correct date format displayed, soi I thought it must be set somewhere in my IIS ... anyone any clues.
