This question comes from a poster in the Formidable Slack Community:
How can I change the inline datepicker field to start on Saturday by default?
You cannot change the datepicker to start on a different day of the week by default through the Formidable build screen. However, Formidable uses the ubiquitous jQuery UI Datepicker Widget to drive its date field calendar. This jQuery widget has an extensive API that allows you to modify the functionality with your own custom jQuery. In this case, we're going to set the value for the firstDay option when the date field receives focus.
Here's a demo form:
Here's the custom jQuery that makes the form work:
Valid firstDay Values
The valid values for the firstDay option are:
- Sunday = 0
- Monday = 1
- Tuesday = 2
- Wednesday = 3
- Thursday = 4
- Friday = 5
- Saturday = 6
Sunday, or 0, is the default value.
