Input Datepicker: Overview

A web component based on the date text input field. Its purpose is to provide a way for users to fill in a date with a datepicker. For an input field with a big range, such as birthday-input, a datepicker is not the best choice due to the high variance between possible inputs. We encourage using our standard input-date for this.

export const main = () => {
  return html` <lion-input-datepicker label="Date" name="date"></lion-input-datepicker> `;
