Figure 3: Date Picker Properties - Advanced Options
Default Value when there's no existing value found/selected.
Hashvariable is accepted here. For example, you may key the following
|24 Hours Format|
If "Date And Time" and "Time" field types are selected, this property will appear where you can select 12 or 24 Hours format.
Checked for 24 Hours format.
Unchecked for 12 Hours format.
The Data Format uses the Java date syntax. For example, the yyyy-MM-dd displays as 2011-06-01.
Attach a Validator plugin to validate the input value.
|Start Date Field ID||This option should be used in conjunction of "Set Current Date As".|
|End Date Field ID||This option should be used in conjunction of "Set Current Date As".|
|Set Current Date As|
Display Format uses the jQuery date syntax.
|Date Picker Year Range|
Range of years to be shown
In essence, the value left of the colon ":" must be a negative number and on the right must be a positive number. It indicates to Joget Workflow how many years earlier and how many years forward to display in the year select box based on the selected year.
A value of "c-0:c+0" is also valid, this indicates to the user that he cannot change the year value (it will default to the current system year).
|Readonly||Determines if the element is editable.|
|Display field as Label when readonly?|
Displays the value of the element as plain text when element is set to "Readonly".
If the form is part of a workflow process, upon saving of the form (by clicking on "Save as Draft" or "Complete" button). The value in this input field will be saved into the corresponding workflow variable named here.
