View Full Version : msgTarget:side + DateField causes error if initial value is invalid.

Looks like the validation checks need to be deferred until the whole form is rendered?

var F = new Ext.form.Form({
labelWidth: 150,
method: 'POST',

new Ext.form.DateField({
name: 'date',
width: 125,
fieldLabel: 'Date',
minValue: '01/01/1900',
maxValue: new Date(),
format: 'm/d/Y',
value: '01/02/1234'

F.addButton('Save', function(){
if (!F.isValid()) {
Ext.Msg.alert('Errors', 'Please fix the errors noted.');
}, F);

<div id="theForm" style="width: 400px; border: 1px solid black"></div>

causes error:
el has no properties
[Break on this error] if(!el.dom){
ext-all-debug.js (line 2918)

I checked a NumberField with a initial value > maxValue and it did NOT cause the same error, so it may be just the DateField code with the problem?

Can you paste a stack trace for the point of the error. Thanks.

I think this is what you want...
el has no properties

That is with 1.0.1a. 1.1-beta2 also has the problem:
