Issue with 'Display value using read only formatting' check box



The requirement is to show the user selected date in 01/01/2001 format.

For that user must check “Display Value using Read-only formatting” by selecting format option in DateFormat drop-down of READONLY FORMAT section.

When user does that the format is overriding the value that user provided and reverting to the old value.

As a result format error message and value provided are mismatching.
