Date format inKM

In our company, KM will be used by Europe, China and US. Hence, date format should be for example, "24 Nov, 2004" instead of 11/24/2004 (MM/DD/YYYY). Is it possible to chnage the property"modified" to show the above format. Atleast, I would like to describe the date in the column heading in the layout. Can this be done?

    Hi Viji,

    unfortunately not in the current release. But you can easily add a new cutom property renderer for Date types. An implementation could look like this:

    public class DatePropertyRenderer implements IModelledPropertyRenderer {

    public Component renderProperty(IProperty prop, IMetaName metaname, IResource resource, IProxy proxy, IParameters p) throws WcmException {

    if (resource==null) return null;

    if (prop==null) return null;

    IProperty dateProp = Property.createLastModifiedProp(new Date());

    IPropertyName dateName = dateProp.getPropertyName();

    IPropertyName cdateName = prop.getPropertyName();

    if (dateName.getNamespace().equalsIgnoreCase(cdateName.getNamespace()) &&


    ) {

    Date date =prop.getDateValue();

    if (date!=null) {

    TextView desc = new TextView();


    SimpleDateFormat f = new SimpleDateFormat("dd.MM.yyyy");


    f = new SimpleDateFormat("dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm:ss");


    return desc;



    return null;



    Register the implementation in the Property Metadata Service and assign it to the modified property.
