Perspective Set Date Property Null

Is there a simple way to set a date property to null in the Designer that I’m just missing? When a property is recognized as a date, it no longer allows you to type in the property value. Seems like it should be trivial but currently my only method is to jump through hoops (i.e. - bind to another property that is null and remove binding, script, etc).

If there is no easy way currently, it would be nice to either allow raw edits of the date properties or a right-click option to set null.

It’s still not ideal, but you don’t need to bind to another property - you can use make an expression binding with the value null - pretty quick. Or you can just delete the property and re-add it.

I don’t think there’s anything better than that in the UI, though, unfortunately.

Wow…I’m embarrassed to think about how many times I’ve done this and not thought to just set the expression to None…:man_facepalming:
