Adding a date field allows the user to select a specific date.

The first example at the right shows the component with the default settings (dropdown "Year" option). The second shows the component with a text entry option for the "Year".

Date-specific Options

  • Default value
    The default value of the field. Accepts any date in any standard Date Format. Strings such as today, +2 months, and Dec 9 2004 are all valid.
  • Default value timezone
    Select either "User timezone" or "Website timezone"
    Default = "User timezone"
  • Hide
    Choose whether to hide the Day, Month or Year when displaying the field
    NOTE: A hidden day or month will be set to 1. A hidden year will be set to the year of the default value.
  • Start year
    The first year that is allowed to be entered. May be relative (i.e. -2 or +2) or simply the year (i.e. 1950)
  • End year
    The last year that is allowed to be entered. May be relative (i.e. -2 or +2) or simply the year (i.e. 1950)
  • Enable popup calendar
    Shows calendar button next to the date field for user to pick a date
  • Use a textfield for year
    If checked, the generated date field will use a textfield for the year. Otherwise it will use a select list
