TOPIC: date format pdf-ticket

date format pdf-ticket 10 years, 1 month ago #36535

Dear sirs,
we need for your pdf-tickets the german date format Unfortunately the date format on PDF ist the british/american yyyy-mm-dd. How can I change this? On the webpage the date format is how I need, only on the PDF it's "wrong".

Can anybody help?

Thank you very much!

This is really good question. You can set it only manually by changing php code.
Find {project_root}/administrator/components/com_vmeticket/helpers/helper.php and around line 110 is this row:
return self::getUtcTime("Y-m-d G:i", $time);

You need to modify Y-m-d string to j.n.Y or d.m.Y. "j" and "n" are days and months without leading zeros. More about date formatting on php date manual.

Is this helpful for you?

We will try to add there some option in administration for date format. It should be in next 2 versions.

Thank you very much!

Around line 110 there was no such code.
But around line 70 I found this function:

function dateTimeFormat ($time = null)
if ($time == null){
$time = time();
return date("Y-m-d G:i", $time);

I modified Y-m-d to d.m.Y as you've described - an it worked!
