Sugar 7 - CreateView field logic breaking form

I use Sugar Enterprise 7.7.

Only recently I got form validation on page load to work.

But there is a problem: the validation I done actually changes the field value by changing it's model value, but it's giving a javascript error, blocking the form from submitting.


This is the code:

    extendsFrom: 'CreateView',      
    initialize: function(options) {                           
        this._super('initialize', [options]);                                        
        this.on('render', _.bind(this.testFunc, this));  
    testFunc: function() {        
        _.each(this.fields, function(field) {      
            if (_.isEqual(, 'data_init')) {      
                var datetime = new Date();       
                console.log("Datetime: "+datetime);  
                model.set({data_init: datetime});  
                console.log("Value: "+field.value);    
        }, this);     


And this is the error:

Uncaught TypeError: val.match is not a function at on line 17write @ logger.js:123

date.js:867Uncaught TypeError: val.match is not a function


What I'm missing? What I should do to set the model value correctly?

Maybe it sounds like something basic, but my knowledge on backbone.js and underscore.js is still limited. I'm still searching an learning some things.

Any help would be appreciated.
