i want to change the format of Field "Modified"

<SharePointWebControls:DateTimeField Name="Modified">

on my layout to this format : 1 january 2014 instead of 01/01/2014 00:00 is it possible?

Thanks for your help


There are multiple ways to achieve this

  1. Create a new Class that inherits DateTimeField and add a property which displays the new format. Detailed steps
  2. Using Inline code in place of the control

    <%=SPContext.Current.ListItem["Modified"] != null? (new DateTime(SPContext.Current.ListItem["Modified"].toString()).ToString("dd/mm/yyyy hh:MM"): string.Empty %>
