British date error when adding Product Entry


In the Product Entry page, the date appears to be displayed in British format (dd/mm/yy) - however, when clicking "Apply", an "Arithmetic overflow error" is returned if same UK format is submitted. Submitting the date in US format avoids the error, but then shows a "*#" next to the date entry (suggesting it's in the incorrect format?"

Same problem with "de-CH" culture (which uses dd.mm.yyyy).

I was able to work around the problem by replacing the "Release Date" Textbox with a Calendar control.

To do this, change the following lines in ProductEntry.aspx:

original version (lines 51-59):

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2"


replace with:

<asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server" SelectedDate='<%# Bind("ReleaseDate") %>'></asp:Calendar>
