first take care how you define it in your data store. There you can have something like :
{name: 'youFieldName', type: 'date', dateFormat: 'Y-m-d H:i:s'}

then in your form field :
{format:'d M Y',xtype:'datefield' . . . }

Ext.data.Field.prototype.dateFormat = 'd-m-Y H:i:s.u';

hey ddufy !
he maybe not must use to redefine the global prototype, because in his application, maybe there are others dates, or times, that are not in this same format. So, for keeping "elastic" he must only format IN the current form, I think :-)

I would think you should have the same date format through out your application - otherwise you confuse te user.

you right ddufy. I vote for this as you says, being consequent and not tire the users with different formats !! But, for example, on the app that i work now (and others before) THE CLIENT ORDER to have, a format on some date fields and OTHER :-( format in order dates fields
