Oracle Tips by Burleson
The date picker page item type is used for dates,
of course, but it provides an icon on the right side of the data
picker page item that displays a popup window with a calendar. The
icon is visible in the Date Pickers region in Figure 10.16. The popup
allows the user to click on a date which will populate the data picker
page item. Depending on the date format that has been set for the
date picker, the calendar popup will display different information
available for selection by the user.
Figure 10.16 shows the images of two data
pickers. The one on the left has the format set to use the
PICK_DATE_FORMAT_MASK which has been set to MM/DD/YYYY and the one on
the right has the format set to MM/DD/YYYY HH:MI. Notice the image on
the right. It has included select lists for hour, minute, and AM/PM.
As a bonus, the date shown below the select lists is updated each time
a piece of the date is selected.
