Tom - using your "Modern commitment" approach, and having problems with one field presentation type; a drop down calendar. I cannot get the drop down calendar to be a picker - it opens, but content is not selectable. The field can be entered manually, but the picker is not. It is almost like the calendar icon attached to a date field, is effectively attempting a commit??? Added the date field to your example, to confirm that the behavior was not specific to something in my implementation.
For now, I replaced the field with a button bar segment, with the date field as the label, and a popover using a calendar picker (of my own design), to populate (or clear) the date field. But I'd like to figure out why the drop down - just on the field type calendar/date is not functional.
Can you confirm this is not something stupid (a common malady) mistake that I am making?
