I have created a date & time type of column in my custom list, I have selected date only as display format. I can just fill date in this field on new item form but when i see this field in display item form, i see some extra charaters with the date selected, I just want to display date on display form as well. Please help. Thanks a lot.
Use something like:
<xsl:value-of select="ddwrt:FormatDate(@ArticleStartDate, 1033, 3)"/>
1033 to you LocalID and the second number is a format specifier. See here for possible values.
Make sure you have the
ddwrt namespace reference
xmlns:ddwrt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/runtime" in the top of your xsl.
