Splitting a date field

(Sachin Kumbhar) #1

Hello everyone,

I have a date field. And I need to insert the space after each digit in it.
In short, i want to provide the character spacing for the required database field.
Ex. Date field: 05.08.2015
result: 0 5 . 0 8 . 2 0 1 5

Is there any function or property available for character spacing?
Can anyone please suggest me the way to achieve this in Label report formula?

Hello Sachin,

thank you for your post.

There is no List & Label DesignerFunction for such a task. But you could create your own DesignerFunction, which is able to split a date field like that. Please have a look to the Designer Extension Samples. They demonstrate how to pass an own DesignerFunction to List & Label:
