Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Open the pyCaseSummary section and change the Goal and Deadline date formats to 01/01/01 01:00 AM.
2. Change Operator ID, "Locale" value to "en_GB"(this locale for UK).
3. At runtime,date format should be dd/MM/yyyy HH:MM. It is showing 01/01/01 01:00 AM

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules : The scenario is, if user is having LAYOUT GROUP with tab format or TAB Layout then the date format is not showing in expected locale format. Let us say, there is TAB 1 and TAB 2. If TAB 1 has any date field with custom read only format then TAB 2 Date fields format is displaying wrong.

​This is not happening if we change the tab positions TAB2 in place of TAB1.

RULE-UTILITY-FUNCTION PZCONTROL PZGENERATEFORMAT is modified to clear the custom date format.


Apply HFix-29413.
