I define a date field within a Window like this...


Code:
new Ext.Window({
  ...
  bbar :[
    {
        xtype : 'datefield',
        fieldLabel : 'Choose Date',
        id : 'chooseDate',
        listeners : {
           'select': onDateChange
        }
     }
     ....]
  ...
}
And then I try to set the value of the field like this

Code:
Ext.get('chooseDate').setValue('04/02/2010');
But I get the error "Error: Ext.get("chooseDate").setValue is not a function"
Ext.get('chooseDate').getValue() works just fine.

So it seems that I'm getting the DOM element which the DateeField is attached to, but not the fully fledged DateField object itself.
How would I do that?

Thanks,

Paul
