Hi all!!

I think this is a BUG, anyone knows a workaround?

when I click on a date, for example "Aug 28" in the corresponding field i'm getting "Aug 27", allways the same with Date Fields and DateTime Fields, I've also tryed to use differents DateTimeFormat.

my code:

final DateField Fecha = new DateField();

final TimeField Inicio = new TimeField();

final TimeField Fin = new TimeField();

when I try to read the value with this code:

Date FechaInicio = Fecha.getValue();

I get the previous date than seleted.

All suggestions are welcome!

It works without any problems with your sample for me. Also if this is really an issue many more people would have discovered it.

maybe it depends something on the timezones?

Sven and Arno.Nyhm, I found out what the problem is.. the problem occurs only with the Hosted Mode, after compiling and test the feature on a regular browser (chrome, FireFox and IE) i've see the problem.

thanks again for your help!

I have issue like this. When user select some date in DateField with DatePicker, for example 10 Aug 2011 then method DateField.getValue() return 09 Aug 2011 22:00:00, ie it subtracts from the date timezone of user (UTC+2 in this example).

I have the same issue. I don't know how to fix it...
It appears only on certain dates (ie 20/02/1932 -> 19/02/1932 whereas 20/02/1998 -> 20/02/1998)

Any help?

I've found that this issue is due to windows (in my case) self adjustment to daylight saving time (horário de verão in portuguese) witch here in Brazil represents one hour ahead. If we turn off windows self adjustment to daylight saving, than it works again.

The question is I have just found it and I am still working in a solution.

The link above doesn' work anymore.
Does anyone have a solution for Daylight Saving which causes one day offset?
On serverside we use hibernate and automatic binding on client side.
Thank in advance

I needed only to extend datefield and adjust difference caused by config of time zone.

Its temporary. I waiting for complete solution to work with any time zone.

public class DateField extends com.sencha.gxt.widget.core.client.form.DateField
public DateField()

public java.util.Date getValue()
if(super.getValue() == null)
return null;
return new java.util.Date(super.getValue().getTime() + 43200000);
