Description DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2005-05-05 19:57:56 UTC
I selected the DD/MM/YYY format in the second configuration TAB of this extension, and in the first tab, it still expets the date as MM/DD/YYY  ... what is not natural to me. AND THATT NOT EXPLICIT.
I just understood when I saw that 16 was a too big value for first field.

Pleas make those fild sensitive to the second tab customisation, or the LOCALE env vars.

AND PLEASE show in that first tab the expected format. PPl entering date 01/02/2005 will never guess whether it is 1st feb, or 2nd jan ...

In fact, the pages of the configuration pannel of Gkrellm cant be dynamic enough to solve this bug.

When closing and reopening the conf pannel, then the dates are printed in the right format.

- open conf pannel,
- tick the desired format
- close conf
- re open pannel

I dont think the GUI of the conf pannel will ever support dynamic arrengement of boxes to ever fix this bug properly.

So I just close it.
