I have just updated to the latest 4_2_Ed prior to retesting this issue. I
have grids, IB_Date and IB_Text in this application that are used to
edit/show dates and all display the wrong way wether focuses or not, the
edit mask seems to always be 00/00/0000 regardles of any windows settings.

There is also an issue of refreshing the grids I found while playing with
this. While the app was running I was changing the date format in the
control pannel but the grid would not reflect the changes until I click on
each row one at a time...
