onChange Date Bug

Seeing and unexpected experience with the date field onChange event. I'm attempting to validate a user typed in the required 4 digit year (e.g. 2019) instead of the 2 digit abbreviation (e.g. 19) and came across this issue. On a single line of text field (SLOT) when the field loses focus (e.g. user clicks to another field) the onChange fires for that SLOT field. On the other hand, in a date field the onChange event only occurs if a user enters a valid date and when the valid date is entered it fires immediately (not when the focus changes). I setup the a test list showing some onChange experiences and the inconsistencies with the onChange event between the SLOT and the date fields.

Single Line of Text onChange:

UpdateContext({
varSLOT: DataCardValueSLOT.Text
})

Date Only onChange:

UpdateContext({
varDate: Text(DataCardValueDate.SelectedDate)
})

Re: onChange Date Bug

I put in a support ticket and demonstrated the issue to the tech but was told this is "by design" but in the same breathe "we'll take this to our team for a feature enhancement." Disappointing response but wanted to close this out for any others that come across this issue.

Bumping this up. Is there a dedicated bug tracker/reporting site?

Re: onChange Date Bug

Thanks for following through on this @iDrive . I'm stymied by this as well. Agreed that is a very frustrating response (why behave differently 'by design'?), but here's hoping someone will see sense.
