place a displayformat in the property of the underlying TDateTimeField

if you have persistent fields, then you can set it at designtime in the Objectinspector

at runtime use this in the afteropen-vevnt of your dataset

begin
  TDateTimeField(Dataset.FieldByName('FieldNameHere')).Displayformat := 'dd.mm.yyyy';  //or what format you need
end;

hope thats it
