Hi All,

I am new to ASP.NET MVC and Single Page Application, I am trying to develop a SPA for managing member's information.

At the moment I am trying to add a new View for typing in the Member's Personal Info and needed a field for Date Of Birth, the field can either be a formatted TextBox or a DatePicker.

Here is what I have got so far in the cshtml:

<div ng-controller="coa.views.people.new as vm">
  <form id="NewPersonForm" role="form" name="newPersonForm" novalidate>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="MemberId">@L("MemberIdDescription")</label>
      <text id="MemberId" ng-model="vm.person.memberId" class="form-control"></text>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="ChiSurname">@L("ChineseSurnameDescription")</label>
      <text id="ChiSurname" ng-model="vm.person.chiSurname" class="form-control" required></text>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="ChiOtherNames">@L("ChineseOtherNamesDescription")</label>
      <text id="ChiOtherNames" ng-model="vm.person.chiOtherNames" class="form-control" required></text>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="EngSurname">@L("EnglishSurnameDescription")</label>
      <text id="EngSurname" ng-model="vm.person.engSurname" class="form-control" required></text>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="EngOtherNames">@L("EnglishOtherNamesDescription")</label>
      <text id="EngOtherNames" ng-model="vm.person.engOtherNames" class="form-control" required></text>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="Alias">@L("AliasDescription")</label>
      <text id="Alias" ng-model="vm.person.alias" class="form-control"></text>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="DateOfBirth">@L("DateOfBirthDescription")</label>
      <text id="DateOfBirth" ng-model="vm.person.dob" class="form-control" required></text>
    </div>
  </form> 
</div>

I am not sure what tag to use for Formatted TextBox or DatePicker, most of the examples from Google searches on Razor / cshtml seems to use the native Razor markups so I am not sure what to use here.

Please Help!

Thank you very much.

Paul

    Hi,

    This topic is not related to ASP.NET Boilerplate actually. You can use any datetimepicker here. Don't mind razor thing on SPAs. It's just a beauty of ASP.NET Boilerplate to use razor in views. We could use plain .html files. You can use angular-ui datepicker for example: https://angular-ui.github.io/bootstrap/#/datepicker or even you can use jQuery based date pickers.
