I am replicating a fillable/savable form from LiveCycle with LaTeX using \CheckBox and \TextField items. I would also like to replicate the pop-up calendar / datepicker feature. I am aware of the insDLJS package which sounds like I could program one in JS, but does anyone know of a simpler method?

    Can you provide an MWE of related functionality? I'm not familiar with a lot of the stuff you're talking about. Jun 13, 2015 at 16:21
  • The forms are generated using the hyperref package. The date picker is essentially a text field which when clicked opens a calendar / date picker; the selection is then entered as a formatted date in the text box. I am asking whether I need to learn JS to program one through insDLJS or if there are alternatives?

  • I understand what the final result is; I do not understand how to get it (text boxes, check boxes, etc.) up and going. I've never had the need to create such a PDF. Please provide a MWE. Jun 15, 2015 at 17:13
  • ... maybe a look at the package will help ... datepicker-pro on CTAN

  • That's good, though there was a fair amount of lag for me... using the date pickers in the manual.
