Method Get():badDate() Foundation

Determines whether a valid date was entered.

:badDate() --> lNoValidDate

When a Get object has input focus and is editing a date value, the method :badDate() returns .T. (true) when the value of the edit buffer is an invalid date. In all other situations :badDate()returns .F. (false).


When inputting dates, the method :badDate() tests whether the date input is valid. So, for example, if a user enters "04/31/94" or "02/29/94", :badDate() returns .T. since the month of April has only 30 days and the year 1994 was not a leap year. When :badDate() returns .T., it acts like a validation code block and does not permit the user to leave the field until a valid date is entered.
