Android Day Format

Post by mh348 » 20 Feb 20, 17:09

Hi, I use the Android Pro version and can't seem to get the day name to display using the macro.

This works correctly on the PC version, by on Android the output is just "0020", which parameters do I need to change/add?
{#datetime -f dddd}

@mh348
maybe {#daytime -f ddddd} (with 5 d's) will work (I think -f dddd is for weekday)
Is there an Android manual you can look into?

I've tried but but #daytime doesn't do anything. I've also tried #datetime with 3, 4, 5, 6 d's but that doesn't make any difference.

According to the PE Android manual, these two date Macro's are supported, #datetime, #date but I can't figure out the parameters for the day name.

Any other idea's?

Code: Select all

{#datetime -f EEEE}
Should do the trick
