    Hope it is not too late for this wish for 8.3 release. Any possibility to add a date picker library in 8.3 instead of using the ones available on the forum (even though they are working fine in my app).

    i.e., https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-xui-anotherdatepicker.85160/
    as part of release

    In case if it is already added or is already available in previous (i am using 8.00) then do let me know where can i find it.

    I am currently using AnotherDatePicker (https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...epicker-a-simple-web-style-date-picker.27548/) and is working like a charm.

    Cheers :)

    I don't understand the request. What is the problem with the existing pickers?

    There is no problem. It is just that having a date picker is one of the basic requirement for most android applications, so i thought i would request that as a wish for upcoming 8.3.

    Just like in 7.x version xCustomListView was not part of Internal Libraries but in 8.0 you added it to the package and gets installed by default.

    I see. Note that it is very simple to create a library out of this class.

    Create a new project, add the class and the required libraries.
    Add to main module:
    #LibraryName: AnotherDatePicker
    Click Alt + 5

    And you will have a new library. You will however need to add the layout file when you use this library.

    Thanks for understanding :)

    That I understand as have made a couple libs myself.

    That can be avoided if it can be added as a custom view.

    Anyhow, you are the Boss, so it is your call. I just wish, if could happen.

    AnotherDatePicker is already a custom view.
