    You know, something that is present on most of the hotel reservation / airline websites.

     

    Pointless in browse mode, but would be a real time saver in find mode.

     

    Something like this:

    That would then be "translated" by filemaker to the rage format <startDate>...<endDate>

     

    For single date selection

    1. enter the field and bring up the selection widget
    2. click on a date
    3. click outside the widget to dismiss it without selecting a second date
    4. to correct your input restart from step 1 (like today)

    For date range selection

    1. enter the field and bring up the selection widget
    2. click on a date
    3. clicking on a second date (before or after the first date user chose) dismisses the widget.
    4. The field now shows xx/xx/xxxx...xx/xx/xxxx asdsa
    5. If you want to correct your input restart from step 1

     

    Selecting multiple dates that are not a range cannot be used in a single query so that would not be something possible (shift clicking also would not be used to support the scenarios above)
