Entering dates into a user program - Randall - 05-25-2018 03:40 AM

This screen shot is from the finance app - bond calculations.

Date entry is efficient (Settlement Date and Maturity Date).

At startup, the last date value is displayed. If running several bond scenarios one or both date values may not change from the previous entries. If so, the date is already populated.

If a date does change the user can (1) use the edit soft key or (2) select today's date using a soft key or (3) use the calendar icon to select a date.

With practice dates can be quickly entered compared to my own date entry code using msgbox.

In reading the programming chapter I found msgbox examples but did not see a way to duplicate the finance app method of entering dates.

Is it available so that I can use it in my own programs?
