in my code i have : <af:selectInputDate readOnly="false" value=""
columns="12" maximumLength="10" immediate="false" inlineStyle="background-color:#CFECEC" required="false" > <af:convertDateTime pattern="yyyy/MM/dd" secondaryPattern="yyyy-MM-dd"
type="string" convertDateMessageDetail="wrong date" />
so when i test in my web appliction by entering a 'string' such as 'asdfasdf' instead of a 'date', the adf framework tries to validate the input value by itself, and put an 'x' in front of the date input field. but i want to turn it off, so that i have the full control of validating the input, and displaying errorr messages.
