    How Do I Remove/Hide The Day Field?

    Asked by cchfd on June 20, 2015 at 05:47 PM

    All I am interested in is the MM/YYYY.  I'm using birthday picker and have injected a CSS that I found in the forum to hide the date.  It doesn't work.  How can I accomplish this?

    You can remove it through custom CSS Injection but this will only work when the birth date picker field is not required. Making it required will require values on all the fields, therefore blank "day" field (hidden via CSS) will trigger required validation error.

    However, if you still want to proceed with using the date picker without making it mandatory, you can use the following CSS code to remove all the day field in the date picker tool.

    [data-type="control_birthdate"] label + div > span:first-child + span {

      display: none;

    A solution that will definitely work even if the field is required is by removing the day fields in your form source code. https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    Perhaps you use Selection list alone, instead of the Birthday Picker.

    There are two other solutions.

    Like I have mentioned above, you can do this by deleting it in the form source code. https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    Another solution is to use the Dropbox Tool, it's under Form Tools. Create two required dropdown fields, sublabel them with month and year then shrink them to align them into the same line.
