ReadOnly Date Control renders incorrectly after refresh



The developer has configured a DateTime control to display read only value in Custom format. The property linked with the control has a Declare expression. During runtime, the Date is shown with custom format. However, after sometime, the date format is getting changed and value is displayed without any format.

Error Messages

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section with Date Time control and configure it with custom date format.
  2. Populate the date control with a property(having a declare expression defined for it).
  3. Configure the Date Control to display read only as always and Date as read only format type..
  4. Run the section and check the Date format of the property.
