I think the automatic change suggested is not good.
When using the date format dd/MM/yyyy, if a month is already selected and it has 30 days, you have to change the month first and then go "back" and pick a day.

A little further, I think the best UI is a plain text input so you can type a date completely using the numpad (besides the javascript calendar-like date selector, discussed in 0008957, for the people with the hand "tied to the mouse").

@atrol - I would personally have closed this as duplicate of 0004454.

@sergiodf - I agree with your suggestion of single text field + date picker as a better UI for date entry

We have no single place in code where we deal with date/time and calendar

For example we have also "Due Date" which uses the calendar control if JavaScript is enabled and also the "Date Order" field for project versions.

This one is for custom fields, 0004454 is for filters.
If you fix one of them, the other one is not fixed.
That's why I didn't resolve as duplicate.

OK fair enough, that's a good point.

I think we should consider standardizing these date fields at some point, maybe create a parent issue to set as target in next release and link this and any other related issue.

EDIT: parent created, see 0015281
