Locale/Calendar options in PowerForms

PowerForms enables users to identify the preferred Locale and Calendar Type for each form. (v.2.4)

PowerForms automatically recognizes the server locale and default calendar type and uses these settings to display data and perform data conversions (in formulas and script).  

Two new properties have been added in the Form Options editor that allow users to alter that behaviour :


By default, these properties are empty which forces PowerForms to use the server settings retrieved.

Users can enter the required locale (a complete list can be found here) and then select one of the available calendars for that specific locale. 

 Available calendars Types :


  •  Gregorian
  • Hebrew
  • Hijri
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Taiwan
  • ThaiBuddhist
  • UmAlQura
