Create date input

Creates a text input which, when clicked on, brings up a calendar that the user can click on to select dates.

dateInput(inputId, label, value = NULL, min = NULL, max = NULL,
  format = "yyyy-mm-dd", startview = "month", weekstart = 0,
  language = "en")

The date format string specifies how the date will be displayed in the browser. It allows the following values:

  • yyYear without century (12)
  • yyyyYear with century (2012)
  • mmMonth number, with leading zero (01-12)
  • mMonth number, without leading zero (01-12)
  • MAbbreviated month name
  • MMFull month name
  • ddDay of month with leading zero
  • dDay of month without leading zero
  • DAbbreviated weekday name
  • DDFull weekday name
