I've spent few hours on trying to make datefield work, but with no success.
My problem is that when try to save a datefield in a gridfield it always set month to 00, and set the value in the database to 01. I Tried many different dateformat for eg. 'd.m.Y' but it doesn't work.
I use version 3.01 but it seems that this happens also in 3.02 + in 3.02 populateDefaults doesn't work.

Any clue how to fix it?

i had a problem in first instance with de datefield in the blog... found out that in the (admin) account settings the date_format should be: 03/09/2012.

Maybe take a look in the blog module how they use it!
With the blog its working perfectly now
