[ic] Date selector widget not passing form data

I did a little more research and found the widget.coretag file which appears
to setup the html information for the options see snip below.  But the date
option is the only widget that appears to not pass the proper information so
I think I'm looking for something a little more specific any ideas.

*************widget.coretag snip*************
my $w = Vend::Form::display($ref);
   if($opt->{filter}) {
      $w .= qq{<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="ui_filter:$name" VALUE="};
      $w .= $opt->{filter};
      $w .= '">';
*************widget.coretag snip*************

Example of my options table

      code sku o_group o_sort o_default o_label o_value o_widget
      100022 00003 date   Delivery Date date= date
