Drop Down Calendar in File Maker Go
Does this function work in filemaker Go
No. Date fields use a scrolling date picker.
I have formatted a field in Filemaker Pro with a drop down calendar and this shows as a scrolling date picker in Filemaker Go but when a date is selected it wont enter it, it just seems to be inactive
Are you trying to enter the current date or a different date? If you want to select the current date in the picker, you need to select another date then scroll back to the current date. I'm not a big fan of the date picker. You can also use a script trigger or auto entry calc to insert in the current date.
Date entry needs to be variable, I can enter a date - eventually but it is a lot of scrolling and messing around. Once it is entered then there seems to be no problem in changing it. Weird!
Thank you for your post.

Although there is no update on this issue, "PhilModJunk" has created a Calendar Style Date picker that you may find useful. See:
