what kind of type did you gave this field?
using the kickstarter to create the field you can assign the types 
'date' or 'date and time'. each will result in a configuration in 
tca.php where the BE gets the information from for displaying, formating 
and verifying of the fields.

"mydate" => Array (
             "exclude" => 1,
             "label" => 
             "config" => Array (
                 "type" => "input",
                 "size" => "8",
                 "max" => "20",
                 "eval" => "date",	// <<<<<<<<<
                 "checkbox" => "0",
                 "default" => "0"
