Windows Phone DatePicker RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I see the native WinJS datepicker is not supported on Windows Phone 8.1 - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn632432.aspx#DatePicker_control

    What is the easiest way to replace this? I notice lots of apps have a fullscreen datepicker, is it possible to use this in WinJS? (Picture Shown)

    Any info would be really useful

    Thank you

  • Hi byrne,

    As you can see from the documentation, DatePicker is not supported in WinJS, however the document also suggest you use select and options instead: Unsupported WinJS APIs on Windows Phone 8.1

    If there is too much workload for you to create your own style DatePicker, you can either choose some third party code library as a assistant.

    PS: the screenshot you are using seems to be a C# version.
