Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35106) Incorrect date in datefield popup for fr_FR locale
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:32:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35106?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15362498#comment-15362498

Peter Marcoen commented on FLEX-35106:

[~jmclean] I think it's an overuse of the parseFunction (by default stringToDate).

The parseFunction gets called in:

# set date: when the value is a string
# displayDropdown
# focusOutHandler
# keyDownHandler: when the key pressed is ENTER
# textInput_changeHandler

I see the value of calling it in the textInput_changeHandler, but in the other functions it
might not be needed? If the text field is updated manually it has to trigger textInput_changeHandler.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35106
>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: mx: DateField
>    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.15.0
>         Environment: Windows 7
>            Reporter: Peter Marcoen
>            Assignee: Justin Mclean
>              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
