Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
When creating a date format, when typing the PHP format the focus is lost. Moving the cursor also makes that the focus is lost. So you end writing your format in a text editor and pasting it in Drupal.
The focus should not be lost. Additionally, it is not actually necessary to send an Ajax request. The proposed solution instead provides sample formatting values to the form element so that the sample output can be generated entirely on the client side, without the overhead of extra requests.
Beta phase evaluation
|Issue category||Bug because this is definitely not the intended behavior.|
|Issue priority||Major because the form is virtually unusable, but not critical because there is a workaround (typing the value first and pasting it in the field) and only this one form is impacted.|
|Prioritized changes||The main goal of this issue is a usability bugfix, so it is a prioritized change during the beta.|
|Disruption||Minor changes to the date format form which would impact modules altering this form. The system JS files are also moved to a subdirectory (as of #62 - #65).|
User interface changes
Date format preview is shown in real time, but without losing focus.
