    I want to be able to have the user click on the day, month, year boxes and get a drop down list to select from instead of have to click on a calendar picker. Particularly, a date of birth entry so the user is not having to click through all the small calendar buttons especially on a smaller size phone.

    Hi,

    It sounds like the "Birth Date Picker" widget is what you are looking for:

    Here is a quick test form to show you how it works:

    If this is not what you were looking for, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can find.

    Is there a way to validate if the date entered is correct? For example, how to avoid accepting entries such as Feb. 31?
