    mx:DateField customization

    Fred in Orlando

      I've subclassed a DateField using mxml to handle a few special cases.  Now I've got a new special case requirement that has me stumped.

       

      I need to allow the user to enter a dash "-" to indicate the field is not-applicable.

       

      I've enabled editing, which allows me to type anything into the field, but it seems to only generate an event only if the text is a valid date.

       

      Is there a reasonably easy way to make the DateField do this.  If I'm stuck, I can add a checkbox to the layout to generate the equivalent event.

       

      I'm not using the standard form/submit pattern, each field sends an update to the server when it is changed, which better fits my requirements even if it is not the most efficient.
