DatePickBox

Postby FM » Thu Apr 10, 2008 12:03 am

Hi everybody,

I think it could be useful the possibility to display a DatePickBox in the grids (calendar-like), for Date fields, like the PickList option for other fields.

Thank you!

I was looking for a "double click action" for a single field in the grid. If it were possible, I could use it for displaying a datepickbox.

This works automatically with other types of databases, but since MS Access stores date fields in a somewhat odd way, we need to explicitly tell Access that the field contains date information. To do this set the field's display format. For example:

dbpSetFieldProperties "Orders" "Invoices" "OrderDate" "DisplayFormat=m/d/yyy;"

Once you do this, the grd will display a date picker when you edit this field.

Another related question:

Is it possible to display a "text entry box" in the grid for Memo field cells?

Thanks again!

Maybe this can be added in the future. In the mean time, you can accomplish the same thing by increasing the row height for your grid.
