    Disabled Past Dates in DateTime Field are still Selectable

    Asked by cheekyface on March 18, 2015 at 10:07 AM
    What about the option in the standard Jotform date-time field settings that says
    "Disable Past Dates
    If set yes users can not enter dates earlier than then."


    I've tried setting this to "yes" but it doesn't seem to be working (I can still select dates in the past).  Is that why you referred to the reservation widget instead?

    According to you're issue you are trying to use the DateTime Field with the past dates disabled and it's not working on your end.

    I checked the DateTime Field and I can confirm it is still not working so I have sent a bug report about this via this thread so that we can get that fixed. 

    At the time I had recommended the Reservation Widget the DateTime Field was working. I recommended the Reservation Widget because it has the same option and felt it would be better for that user's situation in the other thread.

    Today's Date:

    Past Date:

    Hello,

    The field may be able to select past dates but it won't submit the form and will return an error.

    Thanks Guys.

    I didn't realize that it would cause an error on submit.  That's good enough for me.  

    Cheers,
    Danny
