Don't like the rolodex IOS popup date picker, so have implemented a custom date calendar called by a popover button. Have the date field set as Edit Box, not Drop-down Calendar. However, on the iPad, when the date field is tapped into, the rolodex popup date picker still comes up along with the keypad (which I can suppress). Is this normal?
I saw somewhere this was done and also had true date fields in the table to copy data into when completed. Not sure that would be necessary. I've just added a button on the date picker to clear the field if the user unintentionally selects a date and wants it cleared. Gradually learning a little bit each day. Like drinking out of a fire hose.
