Date Formats with TextBox of type date.
I am trying to create a TextBox with the type set to Date.
I have it working, but the date formatting seems a little inconsistent.
If I have code like this
var textBox1 = new TextBox(""); textBox1.HtmlElement["type"] = "date"; textBox1.Dump(); new Button("Continue", (a) => textBox1.Text.Dump("Selected Date")).Dump();;
Then I get output like
Which tells me what the date format is (and as I am based in the UK, that is what I would expect).
But if I select today's date the contents of the textbox is displayed as 08/02/2022, but the Text property is set to '2022-02-08'
If I want to initialise the date time box, I need to do something like
var dt = new DateTime(2022, 12, 25); var textBox1 = new TextBox(""); textBox1.HtmlElement["type"] = "date"; textBox1.HtmlElement["value"] = dt.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd"); textBox1.Dump();
It works, but is a little strange to have to used two different date formats and I was wondering if I am missing something?
