Why does RTC correctly add error indicator only first time a validator script is invoked for same field.

Below is the code for the validator script to check that user does not select a date past today.  If today is 02/16/2015, and I select 02/19/2015 for date, the error indicator icon displays on the selection box, as it should. If I then select another past date, say 02/20/2015, the error indicator goes away (though in debug looks like it errored). The error indicator icon seems to toggle on and off for every selection there after, whether past or not. The server side validator catches the past date even though the error indicator icon has disappeared, so that's good. Anything I'm doing wrong or do I need to open a PMR? I'm on 5.02 server and Eclipse client.

dojo.provide("com.impediment.Invoice1DateNotPastToday");

dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Severity");
dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Status");

(function() {
   
    var Severity = com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Severity;
    var Status = com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.Status;
   
    dojo.declare("com.impediment.Invoice1DateNotPastToday", null, {

    validate: function(attributeId, workItem, configuration) {
   var I1Date = workItem.getValue("InvoiceDate");
   var Today = new Date();
   var I1Date = new Date(I1Date);
   if ( (I1Date == null) || (I1Date <= Today) ) {
   return Status.OK_STATUS;
           }
        else {           
        return new Status(Severity["ERROR"], "Invoice date cannot be past today.");
            }
    }
  });
})();

I would assume, if you would debug your script e.g. like https://jazz.net/library/article/1360 you will find it errors and some of your assumptions are wrong.

I'd suggest to carefully read how attribute customization works, and search the internet how you can compare dates. I believe the code below works. Just using  (I1Date <= Today) does not cut it, I believe. See here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/492994/compare-dates-with-javascript
