I’m using Delphi 2.0. My application changes the date format with
ShortDateFormat:=’dd/mm/yyyy’ and dateseparator functions. It works, but I found that when I change the taskbar’s ontop or autohide properties, the system’s regional settings formats override mine. I’m using these dates in a DBGrid, and I arranged the columns with this format. I want to use it permanently.
For permanent data format changes, you’d be better off changing the format inthe BDE Configuration Manager rather than trying to do it all in code. This is muchmore direct, but it will affect all your other database applications.
