i am loosing my hair over this. here's what im trying to do.
i am using the datefield component. basically when the user chooses
a date. it gets posted to a text field and the user clicks sumbit
to email the date. the emailing is working like a charm.
my problem is that the datefield component posts the text in
html format. so when i recieve the email, i get it in html format
and very hard to read. i have made sure that the text field "Render
text as HTML" is turned off.
when i put a trace on the datefield, it provides the data in
html format too.
What version of Flash are you using? I was unable to
replicate this problem with Flash 8. Can you give some sample code
maybe? I placed a DateField on the stage, and using the following
code, everything looks fine...
myText.text = myDate.selectedDate
