    Issue with convertDateTime when backing bean date is null

    denis jourdier Newbie

      I would like to navigate to a page responsible for setting a date on a backing bean:
      The backing bean (cof) is already loaded in the seam context
      but its date property is not yet set (null)

      the page code is


      <h:inputText id="date" value="cof.date" required="false">
       <s:convertDateTime pattern="MM/dd/yyyy"/>
      </h:inputText>
      <s:selectDate for="date" >
       <h:graphicImage url="../img/dtpick.gif" style="margin-left:5px"/>
      </s:selectDate>



      Issue is:
      When I navigate to this page I get the following error message:
      java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "cof.date"



      Does anyone knows a workaround that do not involve presetting the date on the backing bean before rendering the page ?

      regards
