      Hi all,

      We are using the Yahoo calendar on our intranet (with much success -
      thanks to everyone involved in the project), however we have come
      across a small anomoly... When a user using IE selects a date the
      date displays
      Tue, Sep 12 00:00:00 UTC+1000 2006

      In firefox it is displayed
      Tue, Sep 12 2006 00:00:00 UTC+1000

      We have found a work around - tell everyone to use IE

      however it would be nice if we could force it to return a set date
      format regardless of browser such as yyyy-mm-dd.

      Thanks

      Steve

      Steve -- That may actually be a coding issue 8-) The calendar returns an array of Javascript Date objects, what you are seeing is that JS will let you see it

        The calendar returns an array of Javascript Date objects, what you are seeing is that JS will let you see it as a string, sortof..

        So if you grab the return from getSelectedDates and do something like:
        var calDate = cal1.getSelectedDates()[0];
        calDate = (calDate.getMonth() + 1) + '/' + calDate.getDate() + '/' + calDate.getFullYear();
        You will get a value in calData like : 8/31/2006

        See an example here:
