    I am having issues on the DOB (date of birth) field on my form.

    Asked by cindy930 on April 26, 2016 at 07:10 PM

    Sometimes I do not always have the information from this field from my form. I am going to assume if I "require" the field this could be an option. However, I would like to get rid of the calendar that pops up on the form. When I disable it in the preferences for the edit section of the form, it is still populating? Why won't it go away if I disable it? Is it possible to do a drop down of month, day, year? If so How?

    When you say you disabled the calendar popup of your date field, do you mean you have set the date field Calendar Popup setting to No?

    If you have set the Calendar Popup setting to No, this will only disables the display of the calendar option when you click the date text field. You can still access the calendar option by clicking the calendar icon on the right side of the field.


    If you want to have a date field with Drop down month, day and year, you can use the Birth Date Picker widget instead: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/birthdate
