    Can't select past dates for birthdays, even though past dates is enabled. RESOLVED

    Asked by AA_C on March 03, 2017 at 06:22 PM

    On My form 70553992790972 I have a date selector for a dogs birth date. If a date is selected in the past an error occurs. I have the past dates option checked... Why is this happening

    I cloned another form and have the new one running now.

    So no rush on this.

    Although I would still want an answer about the issue with the date on this form.


    Thank you,






    I found the problem...It was the way I setup the limits, I didn't use a full date only a Year

    Hi Robert,

    I assume the issue was resolve already. Do let us know if still not.

    About the date validation for past dates, it was because in the Date field's LIMITS option, the Past was also checked/enabled. This was the reason it is still possible to select past dates.

    But since the option Disable Past was enabled, it was triggering the date value validation.
