Date Masks in Calibration Control
A mask is a way to format a field to make the data in that field look a specific way. Calibration Control gives you the ability to format some of the more important date, string, and number fields. Find 'Masks - Date' in the Advanced tab of the Program Options dialog.
The date formatting methods used in CC are software industry standards used by MS. For example, a date mask like MM/dd/yyyy, would format August 23, 2022 into 08/23/2022.
Here are some sample date mask results for the date of August 23, 2022 . . .
Each section in this dialog controls the settings for that specific date mask. They give users the ability to define a standard mask for all new records in that category. The date masks are sorted into 3 categories - masks for grids, masks for controls, and label date masks. Each mask uses a drop-down menu to select the desired format (i.e., MM/dd/yyyy). An example of each mask is shown in orange and changes in real time. To reset all masks to default settings, click on the [Reset All Masks & Formats] button at the bottom of the dialog. When done, click [Submit] to save changes.
