Adobe added a built-in calendar picker in the latest versions of Acrobat and Reader. You just need to set the field's Format to Date and it will appear automatically.

Acrobat SDK and JavaScript, Macintosh, Windows

Thank you try67.  Glad to hear this functionality exists.  I am relatively new to PDF forms and I have tried to add a date picker to my form using the advice you provided in your post however, I cannot get the calendar option to appear.  I have added a date field and ensured it was formatted as such but no calendar.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Steve

If the format of a text field is set "Date", then when a user clicks on the field, so that the field has focus and the cursor is inside the text field with an I-beam cursor.  Then a down arrow button will appear on the left side of the field. Click on this button to display the date picker.  If you are not seeing this, then either the format is set incorrectly, or you are not on Acrobat DC.

The user of the form needs to  be using Adobe Reader DC or Acrobat DC any prior versions this will not work.
