The Date special field provides the user with a set of drop-downs to choose a specific date value. This is useful, for example, on a registration form made for an event that has a particular start date. By using drop-downs, you can greatly reduce the errors that are often seen in these types of form entries. Along with the standard properties, you can configure the days, months, and year range.
|Field Name||This is the name used to reference the first field and is also the name of the column heading in the submission bin.|
|Style||Select one of the predefined style options. Note: Styles only apply when the use Basic property is set to false.|
|Basic Mode||The native browser selection elements lack the styling enhancements of the logiforms selection elements, but in some cases you may find it more practical to use the native select element. Set this to true to use the default, native browser select element. If you are unsure, leave the default setting (false).
Performance Tip: We recommend setting this property to TRUE to improve performance on forms that contain more than 20-30 of this field type. This can improve performance.
|Start Empty||Start with no value selected in the first and second drop down. When this is false, the first item in the drop down is selected by default.|
|Available Days||Click the button to the choose the days that will be available in the drop-down. You can select all, or hold down the CTRL key and select multiple days (for example, 1 and 15).|
|Available Months||Click the button to the choose the minutes that will be available in the drop-down. You can select all, or hold down the CTRL key and select multiple months (for example, 3, 6, 9, and 12).|

|Year End||Specify the end of the year range.|
|Tooltip||Enter a short help comment, which will display nearby when the user hovers over the element.|
|Caption||Enter the caption text, which appears either beside or above the element.|
|Multi-line Caption||When the caption wraps, you may notice the line height is wrong. This is when you need to enable the multi-line feature by setting this property to true. Note: Keep in mind that you can increase the caption width so that the caption text does not wrap.|
|Admin Caption||This is the caption to use when viewing data via the submission bin record detail window. When left blank, the original caption is used instead.|
