Subject Re: Query Edit Mask Examples. Dates
Author russellbelding
Hi Christopher

Refer to TMaskEdit in the Delphi Help file.
For the EditMask property use
That is myQuery.fieldByname('myDate').EditMask :='00/00/0000;1;_';

Then your client can enter 12012004 and it will appear as 12/01/2004
in the edit control.

The system's short date format will override the presentaion of the
date. Eg Dates may be entered 12122004 and then appear as 12-12-04
