New Function in 8 - DatePicker() - Function to pick a date from a calendar

We are currently on the final stretch of DataEase 8 new functionality. One function that a lot of you have been wanting is a date picker. In a moment of weakness almost a year ago, I put it on a list of thing we would do if we ever got the time, which normally would mean...Never...;-) As I have had to eat a lot of humble pie over the last 12 months, I decided that we should ease up on the arrogance and listen to the public. And that is why we can now reveal that the DatePicker() is a confirmed function for the DataEase 8 runners up. For every one that want this function we have 5 traditionalist that don't want it, so we will not interfere with the standard date field - it is rather efficient to just punch in a date, instead we will add it as a rather stupid function. date DatePicker(Date) In practice this means that you can call it with for instance current date: DatePicker(Current Date) If you just hit enter, current date will be the result (It will show the month of the year of current date, with the current date highlighted). Obviously if you select a different date...you got the drift. You can of course input any date you want, and the month for that date will show up. Nifty!
