I’ve looked for it, but can’t find it. Maybe it hasn’t rolled out yet? It is not part of the Modern Controls drop down list

Hi @Ez Otb, modern controls still in experimental mode.

To activate it, you need to go on your app settings, in “feature preview” menu I guess, then choose “Experimental” menu and found in this list something like “modern controls” – activate it and go back to your app.

Now, you should found it in the insert controls menu.

I woul take a screeshoot for you but my screen’s are saddly only in French :/

If I leave ‘Value’ blank and then select a date from the picker, it seems to disappear next time I navigate to the screen where it is placed.

A label which is ‘supposed’ to display the date also doesn’t pickup anything when I seem to change dates, weird.

Thanks Matthew.

Chasing a way to fine tune it to highlights days or to manage days available to pick or not, and so on…. not available today, hope this will coming in near future or a workaround may exist already ?

It’s a shame there is no way to set the display format to my region i.e. dd/mm/yyyy. I have tried entering my Content Language but that doesn’t change the format. Also no ability to change design colours. Will continue using Creator Kit for now

The new controls look much better, but I can’t get it in the Dutch notation dd-mm-yyyy.
Any idea? Or is this not possible at the moment?
