Subscription Manager GUI gets upset when Date field is being set to blank
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:03:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Subscription Manager GUI displays the following error dialogue when Date field is being set to blank.
'Invalid date format. Please re-enter a valid date. Example: 03/17/2011'
This error dialogue comes up on every operations excluding Close and setting 'data' manually into the date field. Even the dialogue shows up periodically without any operations.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System -> Administration -> Red Hat Subscription Manager
2. Register the system and go to All Available Subscriptions tab
3. Delete date from the field and then click somewhere such as Calendar icon or 'Update' button.
An error dialogue keeps coming up.
You can click Calendar to set new date.
Proposed fix is to on error, reset the date picker's date field to the last valid date that was entered. Since the date is valid again, the user can now click the calendar button to select a valid date.
Patch is ready, if this solution is reasonable.
Works exactly as described in comment 3. Additional tests were performed to ensure that the default date was in the correct locale format.
