Date Picker submit on mobile device

Date Picker submit on mobile device

rsrsrsrs Posts: 8Questions: 4Answers: 0


I use datatables with inline editing enabled. The current behaviour is the following:
- So on desktop, you can click on a date column cell
- datepicker opens, you click on a date
- then you need to hit the enter key or click somewhere else so that the row gets submitted.

On mobile device:
- I can also click on a date, date picker closes
- Keyboard is still open
- And if I dont click "Return" but click on "Done" (Fertig in screenshot), The new date will not be submitted unless I click somehwere else


Can this behaviour be modified? Like..
Eg. Directly submit the date if it was clicked
or listen on DONE event?

Thanks in advance

    Can you show me the code you are using to initialise the date picker there please?

    I actually don't know what event Done will trigger there - I suspect just a simple "change". Perhaps the solution would be to use:

    editor.field('myDateField').input().on( 'change', function ( e, d ) {
      // Check if it was triggered by Editor, or the end user
      if ( !d ) {
    } );

    Hi Allenm thanks for the suggestion. I used the editor.submit() on button on my datatable.
