We are using 2017 R3 Build 1858 for both PowerBuilder and PowerServer. (Oracle back end, Azure for PowerServer)

We are using an edit mask to present a drop down calendar.

Using only the mouse to select a date in the calendar we have noticed that the modified event doesn't get triggered in our thin client. In our thin client, you must click off of the date editmask in order for the date change logic to run.

In our thick client the modified event of edit mask is triggered, and the date change logic gets run without this extra click.

Is there a better control to use? Or should I be mapping events to help trigger the date change?

Hi Olan;

What I did was added a visual 'clue' that the user must do something to trigger the event, i.e. added a search button. This enables the modified event to fire. The business seems to be happy with this.

Thanks for your thoughts.

The EditChanged event fires when you actually leave the field, otherwise you could still be editing the field when the cevent is triggered. Not good.

If you want changes to occur in a different manner, then your calendar needs to be called in such a way that when it returns it, it causes processing to occur.

I have an example of this code available. (Will look for this tomorrow.)
