Date control not displaying in correct format after upgrade



After Pega 7.2.2 upgrade Read only date controls are not displayed in the correct format.

They are displayed in the format "20170518T130317.738 GMT" instead of "05/18/2017 01:03 PM" wherever "Control Inherited from Property" is used for Pega defined properties(px, py, pz proeprties).

User observed that the Pega defined dateTime properties have an updated UI control defined for them in Pega 7.2.2 ("pxDateTime" has been given as UI control in 7.2.2 whereas "DateTime-CalendarHarness" was the UI control in 7.1.1).

When user change "pxDateTime" UI Control of the property back to "DateTime-CalendarHarness"(by Private edit) the date is getting displayed properlyin correct format. Issue is only with the read-only format.
