    Hi @battarov

    Pods uses React for dates so it isn’t as easy as that.
    Did you try the HTML5 field? That way you can use the browser native datepicker :).

    Hi @battarov

    As I mentioned, we do not use jQuery anymore like the other tools mentioned. We use React (same as WordPress Block Editor).
    You’ll find the date field React code here: https://github.com/pods-framework/pods/blob/main/ui/js/dfv/src/fields/datetime/index.js
    The react component is React-Datetime: https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-datetime

    However, I doubt this will help you a lot.
    I’m also unsure what you need exactly. Why are both the React and HTML5 field version insufficient for your purpose?

    2- also the date picker popup does not close after selecting the date , and you need to click anywhere in the background to return and continue editing . so if there a fix for that also will be appreciated .

    I missed this question. However, I don’t see this as a bug honestly. I myself would prefer the popup opened until I close it instead of automatically closing when clicking on a date.
    You could create a feature request so it might be added opt-in: pods.io/submit

    Cheers, Jory
