    Can the Date of Birth Year be Relative to Current Year?

    Asked by acsys on January 18, 2016 at 08:53 PM

    Hi,

    Is it possible to set the year drop down list relative to the current year.  For example I would like the list to read from 1961 to 1995, which is the equivalent of {CurrentYear}-55 to {CurrentYear}-25?

    Hi there,

    Yes, you can calculate the "{CurrentYear}-55"; but you need to add another "Date" field which shows the current date and "Form Calculation" widget to calculate the year between dates.

     

    1) You need to set options called "Year From" and "Year To" on "Date" field. With them, you can set the starting and ending point on "Year" dropdown.

    To do that,

     

    2) Add a new "Date" field to show current date.

    3) Add a "Form Calculation" with the following setting. On the widget, the "Date" fields' values are in days, so I add a division after extraction.

     

    Also, please check the example form which I made to see how it works:

    Thanks.
