Description Andrey Gankov 2014-08-12 09:42:56 UTC
User fields defined in user-field-decls by specification can be different types, including date type, where value set in office:date-value attribute.
see http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/cs01/OpenDocument-v1.2-cs01-part1.html#element-text_user-field-decl

When i create date field from my application like this:
<text:user-field-decl office:value-type="date" office:date-value="2014-07-01T00:00:00" text:name="Договор.ДатаПодписания"/>

After open and save document in LibreOffice Writer, field convert from date type to float type:
<text:user-field-decl office:value-type="float" office:value="41821" text:name="Договор.ДатаПодписания"/>

This behavior does not allow user see correct data value, when user insert field to text, and it is not clear to the user how to select the date display format.
