I have been serarching and trying and searching for a solution.
Unfortunately without any success yet.
Im trying to display a Datefield on the front end a three seperate dropdown fields "Day, Month, Year".
I am aware of following option within the dateField options:
->setConfig('dmyseparator', '/') // set the separator
Unfortunately does this not render 3 pre populated drop downs for "Day, Month, Year".
Can someone please give me some advise on how to achieve this ?
Thanks a lot in advance !!!

dmy fields uses separate text input fields. https://github.com/dnadesign/silverstripe-datedropdownselectorfield uses dropdown fields for the date selector.

Sorry to wake up old cows, but is there not by now with SS 3.1.3 a way to do this without using addon modules as such?
I am still stuck on this question and would like to do this using legacy SS and not some addon if possible.

No, this continues to be a module (and will always be). Core is designed to be as light as possible so variations of form fields like this are kept separate. In the future we'll see more stripped out of core into modules than module code going into core

Thanks Willr, that makes allot of sence. What be the best module to use for forms in general?

Forms in general? None. Some modules (like gridfieldextensions) provide a bucket of form fields to use but most fields are individual modules so you can use modules when you need to (like the date drop down selector). Some I use quite often are spam protection form field and since we're NZ based, the NZ specific field module (https://github.com/silverstripe-labs/silverstripe-formfields_nz) which contains NZ specific form fields / validation.
The addon's site contains a list of form modules - http://addons.silverstripe.org/add-ons?search=form.

Thanks Willr for the guidance. I will go check it out. I am in Cape Town, South Africa. We are rebuilding all our systems on SS. I am an x spagetti coder, so going the OO way is quite new. But what I have learned in SS, I love it. Would like to be an SS guru soon ;)
Thanks again, Have a good one.
