Format DateTime or Timestamp Data types
The current format for DateTime AF Attributes of Timestamp PI Tags is always MM-DD-YYYY hh:mm:ss
Support options to customize the date format to user defined formats.
When I select DateTime as a Value Type, how can I get the result to only appear as DD-MM-YYYY? With daily data, having the HH-MM-SS appearing is very annoying, and I'm having to use coloured boxes to coverup the HH-MM-SS portion of the DateTime stamp in Pi Vision displays.
this should have been basic capability from day 1
And I don't refer only to data types. I am referring to the date that appears in the bar time and also to the timestamp of the events.
I am working with a Pharma company that wanted the format DD-MMM-YYYY in the displays. OSIsoft provided us with a custom solution, modifying some PI Vision files, but then we had problems with custom symbols developed.
So I support your idea.
