This field lets a user pick a date. You are able to set the format the date should be entered in. A pop-up calendar may be provided by the browser.
|The label for this field
|Whether to show the label for this field or not. This property adds/removes a class on the field's label element. The styling itself is controlled by the site's stylesheet
|Additional information displayed alongside the field to assist the user in completing it. The value of another field can be used by adding the field's name between # characters. See Common Field Properties for more information
|Whether or not the field is required to have a value to pass validation
|The display width of the field. The value matches a CSS class, which actually sets the width
|The format used to store the date. Pick one from the drop-down list. "YYYY-MM-DD" is recommended.
Note that the displayed date is not affected by this setting, it will always be formatted according to the user's locale (as determined by the browser or operating system)
|Whether this field's value should be indexed by the search (the object collection if using the database save action and/or workflow process collection if starting a workflow process).
This property is ignored if an External Type is specified for the form. In this case, the ability to search is determined by the searchable property of the type itself
|How the date should be represented in the search index.
Select "Date" to index the date as a date/time (UTC). Note that for backwards compatibility with an older version of this field type, it is still possible to index the value as a string
|A default value for the field. This must match the format selected in the Format property
|Restrict the entered date to one that falls after a particular date. This should be entered in a format that matches the Format property, and we recommend you use YYYY-MM-DD.
If the 'Range' setting is set to Future or Future+Today, it will take precedence over any date specified via this setting
|Restrict the entered date to one that falls before a particular date. This should be entered in a format that matches the Format property, and we recommend you use YYYY-MM-DD.
If the 'Range' setting is set to Past or Past+Today, it will take precedence over any date specified via this setting
|Restrict the date that can be chosen to the past or the future, including or excluding today
|Use the drop-down list to restrict date input to weekdays or weekends.
This setting will not affect the date picker, both weekdays and weekends will still be selectable, but it will be used by the field validation to ensure that the selected date matches the selected option
|Enter a regular expression that will be used to validate the date.
For example, you could restrict the date to any date in June, July or August with:

|Add documentation to your field to help explain any complex functionality to future users. You might include information on what the field does and how it relates to other fields on the form.
