Date Field Plugin

Provides support for a new type, date, in form fields. When a form field is set to this type it will no longer be editable by normal means, but only through a date selection popup.

Usage

In a form definition, enter date where you would normally put text . For example:

| Birthday | date | 0 | 1 April 2004 | A date |
This will display an uneditable text field and a date selection icon that can be clicked to use the Mishoo Javascript calendar widget to insert a date. The size field is ignored.

If you want to use Javascript to create other data types in form fields, you can use this plugin as a model of how to do it.

Settings

    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Adds a date type to forms
