Sets or gets the value of the date picker.


  • Changing a date picker's value in code does not trigger an onChange event.
  • If a date picker is connected to a dataset, setting the date picker's value in code does not set the value of the connected field in the dataset. That means if you use the dataset to perform a submit, the value changed in code is not reflected in the submitted item.
  • To submit the new value using a dataset, set the field's value using the setFieldValue() function before performing the submit.
