date picker defaults back to today's date after an error is encountered while submitting

Hello

 

I have a date picker field which uses below formula for the default property. If the form is in new mode the date automatically defaults to today's date. But when I clear the date using the clear button and then change the default date by picking a date from the calendar followed by an error on submission of the form then the date field defaults back again to today's date. This happens only when the error is encountered, which I dont want to happen. How can I avoid this behavior?

 

If(MakeBlank1,Blank(),If(EntryTypeVar="New",Today(),Parent.Default))

 

Clear button On Select property

 

UpdateContext ({MakeBlank1:true});Reset(DatePicker6)

 

Reset button On Select property

 

UpdateContext ({MakeBlank1:false});

 

 

 

On success property of the form has below formula

UpdateContext({MakeBlank1:false});

 

On failure property of the form has below formula

UpdateContext({MakeBlank1:false});

 

On reset property of the form has below formula

UpdateContext({MakeBlank1:false});

Hi @msv ,

You would need to reset EntryTypeVar on error as if still true will set the date to Today.

Thank you for your reply. Do you mean I need to tweak the above formula that I used. Can you please elaborate with the tweaked formula so that I can relate?

@msv ,

I cannot see your model, so I do not know where you want the EntryTypeVar retaining its value, but one certainly needing resetting is the on failure of the form

UpdateContext(
   {
      MakeBlank1:false,
      EntryTypeVar:Blank()
   }
)

I tried above it did not work. I have set the EntryTypeVar on start to New. This is a global variable to set the form to new or edit mode

 

Set(EntryTypeVar,"New");
