Subject Re: dojo 1.0 DateTextBox and ISO-8601
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2008 21:51:55 GMT
Hi Roberto,

This is precisely what a custom type-converter is for:

It accepts a string and converts to an object, and vice versa.  It's 
invoked by the conversion interceptor.

However, I thought the default Date converter is already setup to 
convert ISO-8601 strings to java.util.Date and vice versa.  You might 
get a nice surprise if you add a Date property to your model with the 
startDate name.  (The docs mention a locale-dependent date rather than 
ISO-8601 so I may be mistaken though).
