Calendar Form Field Format

My calendar is set to DateFormat “%j-%M-%Y”

When form is loaded, the date displays in ServerDateFormat “%Y-%m-%d”

Once you click in the calendar field (whether you change the date or not), the date is then displayed in the proper DateFormat “%j-%M-%Y”

How do I get the date to display properly when the form is loaded?

Unfortunately the problem cannot be reproduced locally. calendar item with ServerDateFormat initializes correctly for me.
If the problem still occurs for you please, provide a compldete demo or share a demo link, where the problem can be reconstructed.
