    Date Picker that highlights or grays out certain dates

    Asked by wambun on January 06, 2014 at 09:02 AM

    Do you have a date picker that I can gray out certain dates or just have select dates for selection?

    Hello, 

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    I'm afraid is not a feature that we currently have, but we may be able to offer a workaround, and quite possibly, a feature request. 

    Kindly provide more details: 

    1. Would you like a way to prevent the entry of certain dates using the date picker? 

    2. Perhaps you would like to highlight certain dates that would be interesting for your form users? 

    Please let us know.

    Thanks! I would like to have a day picker that knows todays date and only
    shows every friday and saturday for the next 4 weeks (as an example) or if
    is not a full calendar, a drop down that would have that logic for example:
    If today is 1/6/2014 only show 1/10/2014 and 1/11/2014.

    Hello, I not too sure I quite understand the functionality you are after.

    Prior to submitting a feature request to the development team. I would like to verify if what you would like is the option to hide dates from the date picker widget, is that correct?

    Do let us know to provide you further assistance, thank you.

    I will go ahead and raise a ticket in regards to your request. Unfortunately I am unable to promise this feature will be implemented. As this is a matter for the development team to decise. Nor would I be able to provide an ETA on when the implementation of this request would take place.

    I would like to second @wambun's request. I am using the date picker so users can book a reservation at a restaurant within a certain 6 day period. We are currently receieving submissions for reservations out of the desired period because users don't seem to read instructions properly. If we were able to grey out dates or just have certain dates available then they would not be able to make an incorrect reservation.
