Calendar Event Date Formatting

Permalink
Hi, I have made a custom block for the Calendar Event block.

The date & time appears in this format: 9 Aug 2019, 20:00 – 21:45

but I would like to include the day and the full month as well ie:

Friday 9th August 2019, 20:00 – 21:45

I have searched everywhere for how to format this date but to no avail...

$formatter->getOccurrenceDateString($occurrence)

this is the only bit of code I have to work with and I cannot find anything in the dashboard to allow me to change the date format.

If you can point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful

Thanks

Thanks ConcreteOwl, I tried that:

public function getPHPDatePattern()
    {
        $isoFormat = Calendar::getDateFormat('full');
        $result = Calendar::tryConvertIsoToPhpFormat($isoFormat);
        if ($result === null) {
           // $result = t(/*i18n: Short date format: seehttp://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php... */ 'n/j/Y');
            $result = t(/*i18n: Short date format: seehttp://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php... */ 'l/j/S/F/Y');
        }
        return $result;
    }

and I changed the date format to 'l/j/S/F/Y' but nothing has happened :(

(I also cleared the cache)

I shall keep looking to see if I can find this type of code referenced in the calendar section

Cheers mate

What I have discovered is the calendar uses ISO 8601 format for Dates and this is very restricted in its options, basically ... No Textual Days etc.
