The Date Picker allows the user of your iOS app to choose a date, time, or both. A countdown timer can also be realized with this element.
To show the properties of the Date Picker, click the Properties tab (the slider icon) in the upper right sidebar.
Here you give the element a name. This name is only used within appdoo. For example, you can quickly see in the outline where each Date Picker is located. You can also edit the name by double-clicking on the Date Picker in the outline. We recommend that you assign unique names when working with Layout Constraints and Data Links.
Here you can define the type of the Date Picker. You have the choice between the following options:
- Date and Time
- Countdown Timer
Here you define the background color of your Date Picker.
If you activate this checkbox, your Date Picker will still be present on your work space, but will not be displayed in the app. This can be useful, for example, if you only want to display the Date Picker under certain circumstances. You can control this via the “Hidden” field in the “Data Links” area.
All information about this area can be found on the separate Geometry page.
The following properties of the element can be set using the data links:
- Unix Time
- Formatted Date
- Countdown (sec)
All information about this area can be found on the separate Data Links page.
