LightSwitch DatePicker (Desktop Client) RRS feed

  • Question

  • If the user enter at the label (next to the date pick button) any date: Ex 04052013 , notice I didn't put 04/05/2013, the control should guess I want to enter 04/05/2013, instead nothing happens. Any idea? What I need to do in this case?

    This seems pretty obvious functionality for a datepicker but I cannot make to function the way I need it.

  • Hi pbenitez

    According to your description above, it will display the date when you enter at the label next to datapicker button. For this issue, you could add a Custom Control to a Silverlight Screen in LightSwitch.

    You can take a look at previous discussion about datePicker as Custom Control in LightSwitch, I think it is also available for you,

    If I misunderstand you, please let me know.
