NOTE: this module provides a picker for DateField only. If you require a picker which is capable of time input (and hence supports DatetimeField and TimeField), please consider using the SilverWare Calendar module instead.

A polyfill module for the SilverStripe v4 DateField class to show a datepicker in browsers which do not yet support the HTML5 date input.





Installation is via Composer:

$ composer require silverware/datepicker


As with all SilverStripe modules, configuration is via YAML. Extensions to LeftAndMain are applied via config.yml. You may also include the bundle files in your theme to make use of the polyfill in forms.

You can configure a default format and polyfill setting for DateField in the YAML:

  default_datepicker_format: d MMM yyyy
  default_datepicker_polyfill: all

The configuration option default_datepicker_format is a standard CLDR date format which will be applied by default to all DateField instances using the datepicker.

The configuration option default_datepicker_polyfill determines the default polyfill mode for DateField instances, and will force the polyfill to be used on the specified device. Possible values are: desktop, mobile, all, and none.

You can override these defaults on a per-instance basis of DateField by using the following methods:

$field = DateField::create('MyDate', 'Date');


To customise the appearance of the date picker, first install the frontend dependencies with Yarn (or NPM):

$ cd silverware-datepicker
$ yarn install

Make your required changes to _variables.scss in the client/src/styles folder. Once you've customised the variables, you'll need to compile the source files.

This module uses webpack for compiling and bundling frontend assets. A configuration file is provided with the repo to allow you to get up and running straight away. To have webpack watch your files and compile automatically, run:

$ yarn watch

When your customisations are ready for production, you may run the following to optimise the bundle files:

$ yarn build
