In our project we have a section called 'Personal Details' where a user can update information about themselves, including their birth date. At present, our form for this page has three separate fields for `DD` `MM` and `YYYY`. We can then take these individual entries, process them and save them against a user in the database.
However, we need to make sure that an invalid date cannot be entered, for instance 31 - 02 - 1985.
For other dropdown values in this page we have used the `PropertyList` functionality which works well. An example being `Salutation` where we have: Mr, Mrs, Ms etc.
Is there a way to create a drop down list that responds to the selection of another drop down list?For instance,:
My second question concerns the year. Is there a way to programmatically populate this dropdown with a long list of years? Otherwise we will have to manually add them, especially if we use the `PropertyList` approach.
For reference I have pastaed a screenshot of our design below:
It sounds like this is a custom form if you're using a PropertyList for values. Can you confirm if this is an Optimizely Form or something custom?
Optimizely Forms has depedent fields so you can have other fields being shown/set based upon the previously entered values so you could do this although I'd personally say maybe it's easier to just use a date picker where that's all built in.
We are using a custom form, Scott. Not an Optimizely Form.
Can you recommend in built-in date pickers that I can use for the custom form?
