    Date Picker Widget: does not have the Hide/Show property.

    Asked by davidtodd on September 15, 2016 at 12:58 PM

    There seems to be a bug in the system that if a fields initial status is set to hidden, there is no way to reset it back to shown.

    I've cloned your form and I've found out that there is a condition that intentionally hide that field. Here's the screenshot:

    You need to remove that condition to fully control that field. After doing that, you can just remove the Date Picker widget and add it back.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    I wish it was that easy! I put that condition in place as the form needed to be made live but have some way of stopping users entering information whilst I worked on it.


    If you have another look now you will see that the field status cannot be changed

    You are correct, there is no option to change the status:

    I tried updating the widget, but it does not work.

    I have forwarded this to our widgets team. You will be informed via this thread when this gets fixed.
