I have some problems using the DateField. If the user enters an invalid datestring in the textbox of the DateField, an ConversionException is thrown and a "!" with the exception tooltip is rendered to the caption of the Datefield.
But this errorindicator still remains even if the user enters a valid datestring or selects a date from the popup.
what is the preferred way to handle this error.
I know i can add an errorHandler to the datefield, and i can subclass the datefield and override the handleUnparsableDateString method.
what do i have to do to : 1.) Display a userreadable error message in the component 2.) delete the errormessage if a valid date is entered 3.) I think this is not possible: display the wrong entered value in the textfield of the datefield
One last question: How can you controll the dateformat of the component. is setting the locale the only way doing this ?
