Topic: datepicker 'disappears'

Chris Sweeney pro asked 3 years ago


I've applied the datepicker to a form. When you click to enter the date, the datepicker appears very briefly, then disappears.

If you then switch to a different browser tab and then back again, the datepicker is displayed and you can select a date.

You can see an example here

Update: it doesn't work at all in Firefox, works fine in Edge. Above behaviour in Chrome

Many thanks

Did you use the latest version? Cause I see that you are using a 4.7.2 and we fixed this for 4.7.5+ version.

Thanks Piotr - I've updated and the modal now works (though it flickers once before becoming stable).

I've used the javascript code on the demo page, to get a yyyy-mm-dd format entered into the database, but I think I need something different, as it enters a default date of 1970-01-01.

Cheers Chris
