*Expected behavior*User selects a date and datepicker closes (no need to click "ok").The ability to specify month drop down along side year drop down instead of forward & backward icons only

*Actual behavior*No option listed in APi for either of these methods, it seems a big step backward in customisation and usabilty.

V4 layout

< [YEAR v] [MONTH v] >

V5 Layout

[YEAR v] < >

Initilisation is via data-mdb-toggle="datepicker" to allow input to load datepicker.

Any help appreciated as updating an existing system with established users would cause confusion as the method of use is so different.

Closing datepicker on date click seems to be usefull functionality. I will put it in our 'ideas' section and perhaps it will be added in the near future.

About the months selection - we've changed behavior of this component. Months view is still available. To open it, you need to select year in 'years view'.

Thanks for this, I see now you pointed out the drill down to month, but if you are in the same year, it is extra steps (unnecessary?) for the user to get to the month. And unless pointed out, not obviously found. Appreciate the feedback, keep up the good work
