Translate the date

i’m using the reporting module, to make a daily report, so we need the date to be showed at the front, but the date is in English, so my question is there a way to change date from spelled English to spelled on Danish, of cause in the report module?

I’m using:
Reporting module version 5.0.3
Ignition version 8.0.3

Hey, yourself. :crazy_face:

I can see two ways of doing this:

  • Create a script data source in your report:
from java.text import DateFormat
from java.util import Locale

dateIn = data['StartDate']

l = Locale('da')

df = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance(DateFormat.LONG, DateFormat.LONG, l)

data['FormattedDate'] = df.format(dateIn)
  • Create a string tag that has the date formatted as you wish, and pass it in as a parameter. this has the advantage of being able to use it across multiple reports.

thank you, it helped
