    Adding Dropdown Calendar to Popup Link to this post


    Is it possible to add a Calendar Date Picker to a Popup CMS window?

    I have a basic Calendar Page :

    class CalendarPage extends Page {

    static $db = array(
       'EventDate' => 'Date',
       'EventTime' => 'Time',
       'EventTitle' => 'Text',
       'EventDescription' => 'HTMLText',
       'EventContact' => 'Text',
       'ContactEmailAdd' => 'Text'

    static $has_many = array(   
          'EventCalendarDate' => 'CalendarDate',

    function getCMSFields() {
    $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

    $tablefield = new ComplexTableField(
              'EventDate' => 'Event Date',
              'EventTime' => 'Event Time',
              'EventTitle' => 'Title',
              'EventDescription' => 'Description',
              'EventContact' => 'Contact Name',
              'ContactEmailAdd' => 'Contact Email'



    class CalendarPage_Controller extends Page_Controller{


    And I want to add in a Date Picker as per tutorial 2:

    $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', $dateField = new DateField('Date','Article Date (for example: 20/12/2010)'), 'Content');
    $dateField->setConfig('showcalendar', true);
    $dateField->setConfig('dateformat', 'dd/MM/YYYY');

    But I can't figure out or find any topics on this? Is it possible?

    Hey Marc-

    I used UncleCheese's DatePickerField - you can find it in the DataObjectManager module. Works great in the popup!
