Subject Re: date bug related to leap year?
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2008 10:01:03 GMT

Thank you for your e-mail.

I have done more "investigation" into this and have found that:

1. The problem does not happen on Linux--only on XP and Windows 2000 V3.
2. The database ALWAYS has the correct value ex. 3/15/08 (or 15/3/08) is 
always stored as such, but displays as 3/14/08 (or 14/3/08).
3. The problem is ONLY in the repeater widget--not it always occurs where I 
am using a table, with one of the columns a field with datatype of date.  If 
I use the field widget OUTSIDE of a repeater, then the date shows there 

In short, I see this problem only for the date datatype for a field widget 
that is used in a repeater type widget on a Windows platform.

I tried to locate "leap year code" in the CForms->formsModule section, but 
have had no luck.

I am using Cocoon 2.1.5 which came out in 2004 so am thinking that later 
versions of Cocoon may have this fixed.

So that is my next plan--upgrade and see if the problem goes away.
