Search Help for node attribute.

Hi experts

I create a field for user enter some date.

If a create an attribute DATE (type date) in COMPONENTCONTROLLER , it appears already with values assigned for search help:

Determined Input Help = CALENDAR

Type of Input Help = Calendar help

So when i bind this attribute with the Layout field , the field has format of date and appers with match code for select the date.

But if i create the attribute DATE (type date) inside a node , it appears without these values 'Determined Input Help' and 'Type of Input Help' both empty (and these are protected) so when i bind the attribute with the Layout field, the field appears without date format and without match code for select a date from calendar.

Does somebody can help me please about How can i attach or assign the input help to an attribute inside a node ?

    Hi Frank,

    Which layout field are you talking about? Pelase clarify.

    And search help here CAlender ) works only on input enable fields. If search help available at dictinary level you will get, and irrelevent taht attribute is under node or direct under context node. For date field you will get automatically CALENDER help.

    • Hi

      Please let me try to explain:

      I have two fields DATE in COMPCONTROLLER, one created directly like attribute in context and other created inside a node GLOBAL_DATA:


      COMPONENTCONTROLLER.CONTEXT: Node GLOBAL_DATA inside with attribute DATE (type d)

      And i have a view with a field for user enter the date, type INPUT_FIELD: V_DATE

      a) when i bind V_DATE with DATE , it appears with date format and match code for calendar.

      b) when i bind V_DATE with GLOBAL_DATA-DATE, it appears without format date and without match code for calendar.

      I see since propertys in context DATE has assigned input help and GLOBAL_DATA-DATE has not assigned input help ;

      but i already found that even i assigned type 'D' to both fields ; for some reason attribute DATE appears like type 'D' , and GLOBAL_DATE-DATE appears like type 'DATE' (no 'D') and that is the reasonwhy it appears without input help.

      I created again GLOBAL_DATE-DATE with type 'D' (no type 'DATE') and it works. I hope i explained.

      Thanks a lot
