Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start calendar. 2. Add a task with a date due. Actual Results: The data in that field are displayed as [Weekday, Month Day, Year], which necessarily means that by the date is cut off (it's too wide for the default column width). Expected Results: It would be much more useful to format the date as [MM/DD/YYYY] or whatever similar localized but shorter form.
As far as I can see, the date is now in locale specific short form (testing on win2000). Marking WORKSFORME. Jack, please respond if you're still seeing this.
The bug is still present in 2004062218-cal. The due date is in locale-specific LONG form. Using Calendar with Firefox 0.9 on WinXP SP1. Reopening.
A. Task table and event table choose long/short date based on Edit | Preferences | Calendar | General Settings | Date Text Format (Long/Short). Set it to short date to see short dates in the tables. B. Some people prefer to see a day of the week in the table, so the long form is available. If the day of week is spelled out in full, you can shorten it by changing your O.S. settings for the long day format to use an abbreviation for the day of week. Ditto for month name. On windows, this may be something like Start | Settings | Control Panel | Regional Options | Date (tab) Long Date Format: ddd, dd MMM yyyy
OK, I confirm that comment #3 is absolutely correct. Changing the resolution back to RESOLVED WORKSFORME.
