I'm relatively new at Livecycle Designer. I'm creating an on-line form where our clients enter their birthday. I am looking for assistance in formatting the field so no matter how the enter it in eg 20 April 1976 it will automatically convert it to 20 Apr 1976?
I think you are asking if you can pop open the calendar window when a user tabs into the field or puts mouse focus on the field. You cannot. To open the calendar window you have to click the drop-down arrow. The date/time field is designed to provide the option of date entry or date selection.
Perhaps you could give the date/time field a Default value that induces the user to click the drop-down. Something like 'use window >>>>>'.
My problem is somewhat related but I want the exact opposite to happen. I do not want the calendar window to pop up when the dropdown arrow in the date/time field is clicked. I wanted the user to manually input the data(in my case, time) which I have already set the format. Is this possible? Can someone teach me how ? Thanks!
