Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35106) Incorrect date in datefield popup for fr_FR locale
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2016 11:45:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35106?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15362383#comment-15362383

Peter Marcoen commented on FLEX-35106:

A work around is to set the formatString:

<mx:DateField selectedDate="{new Date()}" formatString="DD MMMM YYYY"/>

The DateField's function stringToDate interprets the text when opening the DateChooser (clicking
the calendar icon). Since the french locale formats this text with a 3-letter month, this
function no longer knows which month it really is (June or July).

I still think this is a bug. If I set the selectedDate, it should not analyse the text but
use the selectedDate property. When manually editing the text this property could be changed.

>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: mx: DateField
>    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.15.0
>         Environment: Windows 7
>            Reporter: Peter Marcoen
>              Labels: datefield, french, locale
> h4. Steps to reproduce:
> 1. Create a new project
> 2. Set the compiler arguments to "-locale fr_FR"
> 3. Add the following line to the main application:
> {code:xml}
> <mx:DateField selectedDate="{new Date(2016, 6, 4, 13)}"/>
> {code}
> 4. Run the application and click on the calendar icon
> h4. Expected result:
> The selected date should be the 4th of JULY, which it is if you set the locale to "en_US"
> h4. Actual result:
> The selected date is the 4th of JUNE
> h4. Possible reason:
> Because the abbreviation of june and july is the same in French ("Jui"), the popup probably
finds the first month who's abbreviated name matches the selected abbreviated name and thus
incorrectly sets the month to June
