Modiying pxDateTime updates clipboard in real time
When I update a pxDateTime control that is in a grid or table, whether by selecting a date or entering text into it, the corresponding property in my page list on the clipboard gets updated in real time.
If the pxDateTime control is not in a grid or table however, my changes are not updated on the clipboard unless I save and commit them.
I'm not sure why the clipboard is being updated in real time for a grid or table; is there a way to turn this off?

Are there any actions specified at the grid level or on the property in the grid to post to the clipboard? You can check this by opening the section and checking the property panel for the items. There will be an Actions tab.
I discovered that one of the DateTime controls with this behaviour that has been in the application for a while does in fact have an action set with a Post Value action linked to the Change event, but the newer ones that I added don't have this action on them.
I ran the tracer while clicking on and off the cell, and it turns out there's actually a ReloadCell activity containing a Java method that's writing to the clipboard!
