I've created a form on which I need to allow users to enter dates before 1/1/1900. LiveCycle uses 1 Jan 1900 as its starting, or epoch date, so any date before that is considered to be invalid. I can avoid that problem by simply not supplying a validation pattern, but I also need to reformat the date to a specific format for display, which LiveCycle will not do because the date is invalid.
I'm just wondering if anyone has dealt with this before? I assume that I can use a text field instead and do all of the date validation and reformatting myself, but that seems like a lot or work.
