Date Input Plugin for Apache Cordova
Cordova plugin to enhance text date inputs with native date selection.
There is currently native support for iOS already, the aim of this plugin is to provide enhancements for Android (4.3 and under) and Windows Phone 8.
1 step install
cordova plugin add https://github.com/leecrossley/cordova-plugin-date-input.git
Ensure you use the plugin after your deviceready event has been fired.
Bind callback to elements WIP
The easiest way to use this plugin is to bind the native callback to all date inputs (
input[type='date'] elements) once they have been rendered to the DOM. Calling the
init function on the dateinput object will handle all this for you:
There is also support for a custom selector as the first argument of the init function:
Note: Ensure init is called after trigger elements are rendered to the DOM (there's no "on" style support).
Showing programatically WIP
You may wish to trigger the native callback programatically. The
show function on the dateinput object has been surfaced to allow this:
var options =; // WIPwindowdateinput;
