Inconsistent Stype of DateField on 4.2 and 4.6

Hi, All


I am using a DateField in both 4.2 and 4.6 platform and observe some inconsistent behavior:


new DateField("Date: ", System.currentTimeMillis(), DateFormat.getInstance(DateFormat.TIME_MEDIUM), DateField.TIME);


In 4.2, it by default has AM/PM style like 3:42PM. In 4.6 the default seemingly changes to 24 hour style like 15:42PM. In order to get consistent time display, what should we add to the code in 4.6 when using this DateField? Thanks a lot for your answers.

Are the date format settings the same on both BlackBerry handhelds?  You can check this under Options, Date/Time on the BlackBerry handheld.
