    What's the syntax in the widget templates to allow me to format the startdate to the following format

    "MMM dd"

    I see there's a DateField I can use but keeps throwing an exception on me
    <sitefinity:TextField runat="server" DisplayMode="Read" Value='<%# Eval("EventStart") %>' Format="{0:MMM dd}" />

    Hi Steve,

    You can define the format for this field like this:

    <sitefinity:TextField runat="server" DisplayMode="Read" Value='<%# Eval("EventStart", "{0:dd MMM}")%>' />

    Inserting this can also achieve the desired functionality:
    <br><strong>Event Start:</strong></br>
    <sf:FieldListView ID="EventStartDate"runat="server"Format=" {PublicationDate.ToLocal():  dd MMM}"/>


    Best wishes,
