Subject Re: IB_Date

Fortunatly I can reproduce both errors. Of course, my programs work perfectly... strange but true :(
The fix is very simple and fast:
go to
TIB_Date = class(TIB_CustomDate)
and remove 'property Value" from the published section (last line).
I'm sorry, but fortunatly the fix is already here ;)
