Date Picker Options

The Date Picker style allows you to add a calendar icon to a field on a Profile screen. Users can click the icon to open a calendar that they can use to select a date. The selected date is stored in the profile attribute that is associated with the field. For example, you could add the calendar control to a Start Date field on the Profile tab for a Create Contractor task. When an administrator selects the first day of the contract, CA IdentityMinder stores that date in the user's profile.

The Date Picker style has the following configuration settings:

We do not recommend specifying a date display pattern if the Environment supports multiple locales. If a display pattern is not specified, the date is displayed in a format appropriate for the locale of the user.

Note: The Date Storage Pattern, Show Time Picker, and Time Picker Format fields appear only when the attribute that you selected does not have the Date, ISODate, or UnicenterDate value type in the directory configuration file (directory.xml). For more information about value types, see the Configuration Guide.
