Leap Year
« on: January 01, 2012, 06:40:03 am »
Not a real big deal, but the date field will not accept 02/29/2012....does not recognixe that 2012 is a leap year with an extra day.

ok, then there be more than one way to enter the end date?  

I loaded a Disney sweeps than ends on Feb 29.  I went to the date field and typed 0, then 2, then 2, then tried to type a 9 and it would not let me.

Am I doing soemthing wrong?

Thanks

Did you try it today or yesterday ? It was using 2011 by default, but today's default is 2012.

Could you e-mail me a sreenshot of the Sweepstakes List screen when you're trying to enter date ?..

Also, did you try to pick the date from Calendar ?..

I don't know... I don't have a problem typing in 0229... Wondering if any other users have same problem.

Does it work if you pick date from Calendar ?

I was not even aware I could double-click to see calendar, I had just been typing in the date.  I just tried using the calendar and it works just fine.

So, no problem to worry about then.

You may set Calendar option to "On focus". Then you would not have to even double-click on field.

Did you try it yesterday (1/31) or today (2/1) ? If it was yesterday, could you try it again today ?

I've never been able to enter 02 29 2012......when I try to type the 9 it won't type...just stops.  So, for the past months for sweeps that ende at the end of February  I've been entering 02 28 2012.

I just tried ot again today just to be sure.

Let me mention one thing. Data fields constantly check themselves for validity.

Say, you want to type "02292012". If you have data field prefilled with "11/31/2012", when you'd start typing "02292012" it would stop on first "0" and make chime. Because if you type "02", date would become "02/31/2012", which is invalid.
Another example. If you have data field prefilled with "02/28/2011", when you'd start typing "02292012" it would stop on "022" and make chime. Because if you type "0229", date would become "02/29/2011", which is also invalid.

It's important to check what WAS in this date field before you started typing.

For me, whenever I start typing in a date, the field is always prefilled with all zeroes. 00/00/0000
