public class DateFormat
extends jxl.write.biff.DateFormatRecord
implements jxl.biff.DisplayFormat

A custom user defined number format which may be instantiated within user applications in order to present date and time values in the appropriate format. The string format used to create a DateFormat adheres to the standard java specification, and JExcelApi makes the necessary modifications so that it is rendered as its nearest equivalent in Excel. Once created, this may be used within a CellFormat object, which in turn is a parameter passed to the constructor of the DateTime cell
