Hi

I am using the latest release of the CDateTime widget in my RCP and it's quite nice. Thank you guys.

Right now, I would need to know if there is a possibility to have a date-selection only for month and year in the
DROP_DOWN style? I am using this style at different ui-locations and switching to a spinner would be kind of
inconsistent. I couldn't find a flag for this. Is is planned to include a similar feature? (I am not confident to do it
by my own)

In addition there seem to be a bug when using the calendar and time style. Its sounds strange but when initiating my
widgets with date-objects (master details pattern) and changing the selection later on, the date is set right but the
time is still the one from the former selection . I solved it quite dirty with setting the date-value twice

protected void initWidgets() {
if(tia != null){
dateField.setSelection(tia.getDate());
dateField.setSelection(tia.getDate());

Finally: Is there a new release in the near future? I am using 0.9.0 since more than a year now and I haven't heard
anything about a new release.

best regards

Thanks for your feedback. It's good to know the code is useful.

Interesting idea. I don't think that this has been considered yet.
Please post a bugzilla entry so we can discuss this in more detail.
Jeremy wrote the pickers as separate classes, so it should be possible
to write a custom picker for your situation and use it instead of the
standard ones. How would the user confirm their selection? Currently,
this is done by clicking on the button for a specific day. Would you
expect the entire month area to be one giant button?

There are a number of bugs with initialization and propagation of values
between the date and time pickers. I just haven't had the solid day
I'll need to go through the code and exterminate.

It depends on your definition of "near". ;-) Jeremy handed over the
maintainer role to me a couple of months ago. I've committed a handful
of fixes and enhancements, but I haven't been confident about posting
another release quite yet. I'd like to hammer out the init bugs before
I get people's hopes up.

I'm currently using CVS HEAD in my active development work, and it is
more correct than 0.9.0. I also posted a copy of the jar on this
newsgroup a couple of weeks ago, if you're nervous about building it
yourself. If you're having an issue with one of the bugs that I closed
recently, try that.

Thanks again for your comments.
