    Why date selection calendar is allowing dates in past even though they are disabled??

    Asked by mipicasanova on October 28, 2016 at 07:45 AM

    Hi, I've activated "hide the past" on the date selection calendar. I've activated and deactivazted several times but it doesn't seem to be working. Is there any known bug or is there something I'm missing?

    Thank you

    I checked your form, but I wasn't able to replicate this error, it is showing properly for me:

    Is the issue still persists?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Oh, it is actually working but I hadn't noticed because I was actually expecting a different behavior. My understand was simply that a previous date wasn't clickable in the calendar window... Which i think would be prefferable. Thank you anyhow

    Yes, if past date is unchecked from the DateTime field settings, the past dates shouldn't be clickable. Here's how it should appear in the form:

    Please go to options for Date field, then limits and uncheck Past option:

    That way your users will no be able to click on past dates.

    Let us know how this works for you.

    Thank you!
