Hello Suresh,

Here in below example EmployeeName is a textinput control and it’s used inside a section.

So now go to the section 

click on cell properties of Employee Name and change it to Date Time property as per your requirement .

Hope this helps you .

Hi Suresh,

From the latest version it is possible to change the type of the property directly in the data table. In which version you are working? Other wise we have a control in the section.

Thank you.

Hi Suresh,

Property type can not changed once it created from Designer Studio. you can do one thing withdrawn that rule first and create the property with same name in higher version then select the property type as date.

Thank You.

Hi Suresh,

Property type cannot be changed once it gets created.But you can present the property type as date format instead of text input to user through Controls in section or else you need to delete that property as create it with same name with required format.
