Date formatting after user inputs


We have a date picker UI element in our app. Which works perfectly fine when the user selects the drop down calendar to pick up a date. However if they enter date manually then it always takes US date format. 

For example when user types in today's date 12/05/2017 it automatically converts it into US date format and displays the date as Dec 5, 17.

I have set all format option to date:SAPuserdefaults and we want it to automatically take into account user's SAP default. But it always changes back to US date format. 

Any pointers on how to achieve this? I have tried with DateInput field instead of Date picker UI element and its the same issue again.
