Tw3Edit - input type itdate

Recommended Posts

When you set TW3Edit to input  type itDate the up/down items are attached to the top of the component. They look pretty bad when the edit box is normal height but they look unacceptable when the editbox's height is increased. Could this be fixed please.

The different it<TYPE> properties for the editbox are mapped one-on-one on the <input> html-element with a specific type-attribute (here type="date").

Unfortunately, display and styling of this element is done by the browser, and implementations across browsers are wildly different. 

See www.lynkit.com.au/native/www and scroll down to JInput at the bottom. This displays native formatting of all input-types on the platform you're viewing it.

You can however do some  styling yourself and in addition there are about 8 different pseudo elements you can use (webkit only)


Styling :

/* A few custom styles for date inputs */
input[type="date"] {
    appearance: none;
    -webkit-appearance: none;
    color: #95a5a6;
    font-family: "Helvetica", arial, sans-serif;
    font-size: 18px;
    border:1px solid #ecf0f1;


/* Removes the clear button from date inputs */
input[type="date"]::-webkit-clear-button {
    display: none;

/* Removes the spin button */
input[type="date"]::-webkit-inner-spin-button { 
    display: none;

/* Always display the drop down caret */
input[type="date"]::-webkit-calendar-picker-indicator {
    color: #2c3e50;

If you want to set css pseudo values programmatically, something like this might do :

Procedure SetCSS(pseudo, prop, value: string);
//sheet.insertRule('input[type="date"]::-webkit-inner-spin-button { display: none }', 0);  

var s = browserapi.document.styleSheets;
  if s.length = 0 then begin
    var style := browserapi.document.createElement("STYLE");

  var s0,s1 : string;
  s0 := 'input[type="date"]';
  s1 := prop + ': ' + value;

  browserapi.document.styleSheets[0].insertRule(s0 + '::' + pseudo + ' { ' + s1 +'}', 0);
