Date Display - A date display element

This display element is used to display a date on the screen (compare with Text Display, Number Display and Percent Display).

Note that this display element should be used only when the user is not expected to change the displayed date interactively ("read only" mode). To allow the user to edit a date, use Date Input Field or the action Prompt for Date.


<Value> (non-repetitive date element): The displayed date. Access it (to set it for display or to retrieve the date that has been displayed) through a reference to the parent Date Display element or to a higher level display element containing it.

Internal Modeling

As with any display element, you may add an action sub-model named <On Click> to model what should be done if the user selects the displayed date, but this is seldom needed.
