Behaviours marks field readonly while date menu is open

We have a behaviour script

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.datetime.DateTimeFormatterFactory
import com.atlassian.jira.datetime.DateTimeStyle
def oDate = getFieldById("customfield_16324").getValue()  as Date
def eDate = getFieldById("customfield_16325").getValue()
def dateTimeFormatterFactory = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(DateTimeFormatterFactory)
def formatter = dateTimeFormatterFactory.formatter().forLoggedInUser().withStyle(DateTimeStyle.DATE_PICKER)
def formatteddate = formatter.format(oDate)
if ( ! eDate ) {
if ( oDate != null) {
} else {

And when we are entering the date field and switching months the field populates while we switch months thus locking the field and setting the value of the next field we copy it to.  Is there a way to ensure that the script does not execute until a value is entered in the field and the menu is not open to change months.

Hi Kevin, 

I see what you mean. I am afraid that there is not an easy solution in that case. I suppose the best solution was to check the oDate for a specific month or date, instead of just checking for a value.


Thank you.  We were afraid of that.
