Subject [jira] [Commented] (TAP5-841) DateField selects wrong date if client is in a different timezone than the server
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2011 00:04:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-841?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13014318#comment-13014318

Howard M. Lewis Ship commented on TAP5-841:
-------------------------------------------

The Tapx/DateField component does a better job of figuring out the client's time zone and
providing a drop-down list of time zones next to the main control.  Time zones are almost
as ugly to work with as character sets.

> This affects 5.0.18 and 5.1.0.5 in my testing.
> Situation is that if the server is running in a different timezone than the client, the
DateField chooser will select the wrong date on the calendar.
> For example, if the server is running in "Pacific/Auckland" and the client is running
in "America/Los_Angeles", Auckland is a "day ahead" of Los Angeles for most of the time and
the bug is easy to reproduce.
> Right now it is 3:40PM Sep 8, 2009 America/Los_Angeles and 10:40AM Sep 9, 2009 Pacific/Auckland.
 If the date on the server to be displayed by the DateField is Sep 9, 2009, when you select
the date chooser, Sep 8, 2009 is selected in the JavaScript calendar dialog.
> I found this message which seems to indicate that Howard thought it might be an issue
- looks like he was correct:
