    Default UX context with Date Picker

    Hi Guys,

    So, we've had a couple concerns about the UX of the DatePicker.

    Specifically, if you click on the DatePicker, it shows the picker at the bottom, but doesn't give an indication of which input is being updated. (Shown in the following screenshot from the kitchen sink)


    This has been resolved by the Select field, as it shows an overlay with an indication of the input being modified.


    Would anyone have any thoughts on whether it is in the works to have the datepicker appear in an overlay like this?


    Or, would anyone have any thoughts how we could include an overlay with pickers (as it seems they are mutually exclusive and requires writing a complete new component)

    The picker kind of follows what was in iOS and this is kind of the behavior. Actually what I would try to see if I liked is to affect the z index of the field/label so that is comes above the mask.
