Field format is incorrect in modal dialog



Modal dialog is launched from a link. In modal dialog, there are date and amount fields which have formatting set. There are few mandatory fields in the section. On a button, Runscript for doModalAction is configured. At runtime, when the modal dialog is opened and if the mandatory field is made empty and the button is clicked, then the format of date and amount fields are incorrect.

Example: Date is configured as   DD/MM/YYYY
               After the scenario, it is  D/MM/YYYY
