Q: How can I add an interactive text field that allows user to pick a date from a date component? I am using PDF Studio interactive form designer to create PDF forms.

A: There is no definition of a “date field” in the PDF specifications. What you need to do is create a standard interactive text field with a date format. The date picker will be shown when a user is trying to enter a date in the text field.

Please follow below steps to create date picker:

1. Open form editing mode by going to Forms -> Create/Edit Forms

Form

2. Click on a text field icon on toolbar and put it in your document

3. Right click on text field -> select Properties

4. Change to Format tab

5. Select Date/Time format on the dropdown box.

6. On the Options list, select a date format. (For example: I selected mm/dd/yyyy). We also have a preview section on the top that you could see how the date looks like.

7. Exit form editing mode by going to Forms -> Stop Form Editing

8. Select the text field and click on date icon. A date picker will show up as below screenshot.
