Applies to
auAutoUpgrader component.  

property VersionDate: String;  

The VersionDate property specifies the release date of current version of your application. This value can be always set automatically at design-time if VersionDateAutoSet property is True.  
The value of VersionDate property must have following format:  
MM/DD/YYYY (for example, 02/24/2000, that is 24 February 2000). (This is standard US short date style, little bit inconvenient for Europeans though<g>)  
tip If VersionControl is byDate, then after reading the Info-file from the Web, AutoUpgrader will compare #date variable of Info-file with value in VersionDate property. If VersionDate lower than date specified in #date variable, AutoUpgrader will guess that newer version already available on your Web site and will try to upgrade your application on user's PC. VersionNumber property will be ignored.
