With 4.2Ha I get some different problems (using Delphi5)...

When I drop a new control on a form I do get a Value property but the
ide keeps complaining that 'IB_Date1 is not a valid date'.

I noticed that this seems to upset painting of the object inspector
and probably saving of the DFM as well - which may be where your
problems are coming from.

I tried installing a valid initial value in the constructor
Value := SysUtils.Now;
but then I had problems with the mask during runtime.

Marco, I see you updated this last - any ideas on the best fix?
