    Default Answered: Placeholder for datepickerfield

    hi, I would like to show a placeHolder for datepickerfield in a form. I see that in API there is no placeHolder configuration option for datepickerfield. Any workaround would be helpful.

  2. This is because Ext.form.DatePicker extends Ext.form.Field but the placeHolder doesn't get picked up until Ext.form.Text. That being said you can still do it like this:

    Code:
            {
                xtype  : 'datepickerfield',
                name   : 'date',
                label  : 'Date',
                renderData : {
                    placeHolder : 'Test'
                },
                picker : {
                    slotOrder : ['day', 'month', 'year']
                }
            }
