Regional Date Formatting Tokens

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The token [:dmmmm], which is a user-defined token installed by default with Q++, is a good example of the use of recursive tokens to format dates according to regional standards.

 

This token is used to display the full-date equivalent of January 25 in different languages. This token's translation in different languages includes tokens to respect the local tradition for displaying a full date.

 

French : [d] [mmmm]   which gives   25 janvier.

German : [d]. [Mmmm]   which gives   25. Januar.

English : [Mmmm] [d][.d]   which gives   January 25th.
