I created a custom form using template.fmb. I used the ENABLE_LIST_LAMP

for a date field in a block with tab page and used everything as per your instructions. When I go to the

date field the calendar pops up out of my custom form and when I select the date it puts back in the current field. I don't want the calendar to popup outside of the custom form. Any thoughts will be appreciated.
