@emptydate function

When computing date fields you sometimes want to set the datefield to a empty value. Today this isn’t possible at all the field becomes invalid and can give problems with compute with form.

    If you set the field to "" you will get an validation error if you do compute with form and have another formula pointing to this field. And I guess if you do a field calculation you can't do @deletefield on the field being calculated. That is my reason.

    Two options: set the field value to “”.

    Or set the field value to @deletefield.

    Your code need to check for empty (date) field values anyway.

    I don’t see the advantage of your @emptydate.
