Topic: How to show date picker for custom occurrence attribute
Related to my last post, I made a custom occurrence attribute which is Nest Observation Date (for repeat visits to nests). In the warehouse, the Data Type is set to be "Specific Date" and in the Survey Specific settings I have set the Default control type to "date_picker". However, on my form, it doesn't display a date picker, just a text field. If I try to edit an existing record, it displays the entered dates (as yyyy-mm-dd) but it won't accept them on Save, giving "Please enter a valid date".
The form does recognise the changes I make in the warehouse, e.g. if I tick required it shows the red star. In the warehouse Default control type list there are two "date_picker"options, as well as the default <not specified> but it doesn't make a difference what I chose.
Am I doing something wrong...? How do I get the date picker to work on the form?
Thanks for any help.
