I have a datawindow column datatype 'date'. I set it up to
use the dropdown calendar as an editmask. (Not PFC) The mask
is 'mm/dd/yy' and I checked the dropdowncalendar checkbutton
un edit properties.

It works fine as a date picker, but when there is no date
yet picked it shows as '00/00/00'.

How can I suppress this to appear blank. I think it looks
very amateurish this way.

Thanks,
