    using resource bundle to set rich:calendar datePattern

    Henrique Del-Rey Newbie

      Hi everyone,

      I`m trying to set my rich:calendar`s datePattern by using a resource bundle so i can internationalize my app, and I get the error:

      '10/31/2008' could not be understood as a date.

      When I set the pattern as a literal string, like "MM/dd/yyyy", it works fine.
      Here is my jsp:
      <rich:calendar id="startDateInput"
      value="#{budgetBean.budget.startDate}"
      required="true"
      requiredMessage="#{bundle.budget-startDate-required}"
      datePattern="MM/dd/yyyy">
      </rich:calendar>
      <rich:calendar id="endDateInput"
      value="#{budgetBean.budget.endDate}" required="false" datePattern="#{bundle.dateFormat}">
      </rich:calendar>

      I thought it could be a problem with my properties file, so I checked the HTML code that was being generated and they seem to be exactly the same:

      Calendar('editBudgetForm:startDateInput', {dayListTableId: 'editBudgetForm:startDateInputDay',
      weekNumberBarId: 'editBudgetForm:startDateInputWeekNum',
      weekDayBarId: 'editBudgetForm:startDateInputWeekDay',
      currentDate: new Date(2008,9,1),
      selectedDate: new Date(2008,9,1,0,0,0),
      datePattern: 'MM/dd/yyyy',
      jointPoint: 'bottom-left',
      direction: 'bottom-right',
      toolTipMode:'batch',
      boundaryDatesMode:'inactive',
      popup: true,
      enableManualInput: false,
      showInput: true,
      disabled: false,
      ajaxSingle: true,
      verticalOffset:0,
      horizontalOffset: 0,
      style:'z-index: 3; ',
      firstWeekDay: 0,
      minDaysInFirstWeek: 1,
      todayControlMode:'select',
      showHeader:true,
      showFooter:true,
      showWeeksBar:true,
      showWeekDaysBar:true,
      showApplyButton:false,
      resetTimeOnDateSelect:false,
      defaultTime:{hours:12,minutes:0},

      and

      id="editBudgetForm:endDateInputScript" style="display: none;">new Calendar('editBudgetForm:endDateInput', {dayListTableId: 'editBudgetForm:endDateInputDay',
      weekNumberBarId: 'editBudgetForm:endDateInputWeekNum',
      weekDayBarId: 'editBudgetForm:endDateInputWeekDay',
      currentDate: new Date(2008,9,1),
      selectedDate: new Date(2008,9,31,23,59,0),
      datePattern: 'MM/dd/yyyy',
      jointPoint: 'bottom-left',
      direction: 'bottom-right',
      toolTipMode:'batch',
      boundaryDatesMode:'inactive',
      popup: true,
      enableManualInput: false,
      showInput: true,
      disabled: false,
      ajaxSingle: true,
      verticalOffset:0,
      horizontalOffset: 0,
      style:'z-index: 3; ',
      firstWeekDay: 0,
      minDaysInFirstWeek: 1,
      todayControlMode:'select',
      showHeader:true,
      showFooter:true,
      showWeeksBar:true,
      showWeekDaysBar:true,
      showApplyButton:false,
      resetTimeOnDateSelect:false,
      defaultTime:{hours:12,minutes:0},

      Does anyone know why this happens? Or could give me another idea of how to internationalize rich:calendar?
