Re: Switch Control and HTML Date Picker


From: Simon Evans

...... assuming a plain/html date input:

Selection pulls up the iOS native UIDatePicker [3 rotating wheels
DMY/MDY etc] - a wheel is selected - then the user has the option to
decrement/increment the values from an additional native context/popup menu.

If you're using a datepicker which doesn't surface a native control
[jquery etc - even an imagemap] a switch user can use point scanning to
'touch' the screen - often quicker for some contexts but less
predictable/consistent overall.
