Don't like the rolodex IOS popup date picker, so have implemented a custom date calendar called by a popover button.  Have the date field set as Edit Box, not Drop-down Calendar.  However, on the iPad, when the date field is tapped into, the rolodex popup date picker still comes up along with the keypad (which I can suppress).  Is this normal?

I've defined that the popover should open below the button and it works as intended in FileMaker, however the popover behaves differently in WebDirect.
