Hi,

Is it possible to change the date to formats like mm/dd/yyyy, mm/dd/yy etc. If Possible how to change that in Ireport. Please help me in detail.

Off course.
For this porpouse, use the pattern field of your textfield. Set the class of the field to java.util.Date
and insert in the pattern field the string

mm/dd/yyyy (or dd/mm/yyyy)

right. thank you very much for the reply.
but text field pattern is not what i'm
looking for, i'm looking for the pattern for
the date format inside of the chart.
i want the category expession to be date, but it will show "2007-06-28 00:00:00.0".
that is too long for me, so that's why i want to change the format.

like the "category" on this chart. the best is to be diagonal, so it can show the whole date.

new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy").format($F{yourdatefield})


or preformat the date as a string in your source query like this oracle example:


select to_char(myDateField,'DD/MM/YYYY') as formattedDate ....
