[Imported] How to edit the time in events list of a specified tag?

I ticked off the "Display Events" from the Object Menu configuration for a specific tag, and when I tried accessing the events of the said tag, the time format looked very weird to me. Is there any way to fix it? I'm not sure what actually caused it.

I appreciate any help!

Each user has a time and date format setting that is used when that user is logged on. The Default user also has the same settings in the ViewX Options, which is in the File menu on the current versions of ViewX. If you leave them blank ViewX uses whatever the windows system uses.

Hello, I'm sorry for the super late response but I have edited the time format at the ViewX Options. Made it mm/dd/yyyy. It worked for the events and alarms but this time, the time format on the alarm banner is still weird. I haven't got the picture but tomorrow I may check on it again.

Could it because of the protocol I'm using? Or did I miss to edit a time format in the options somewhere?

The time format 'mm/dd/yyyy' is **minutes**, days and year. To show the month number use 'MM' not 'mm', or 'MMM' for the short month name.

Also, the Guest user has time format settings in both ViewX (see 'File\\Options' dialog) and the server (see 'Guest' tab on root group properties).

I knew I read that before but failed to remember it. Thanks a lot! Will try it once I'm on site and will update here as soon as I get it working. But thanks for all the replies, I appreciate it!
