    Possible use of umbDateTimePicker control under Custom Field Type for Umbraco Forms

    I am trying to develop Custom Field Type for Umbraco Forms. While reading few questions on forum, I came across umb-date-time-picker control. I want similar control to be available for end user to select dates.

    Questions

    • Is the good idea to include umb-date-time-picker control under
     Umbraco forms ? 
    • If not what is alternative ? 
    • I am getting "angular not define" if I am integrating markup and controller on custom field cshtml page? So, angular.controller ("umbraco") will only work    under backoffice UI ? Do I need to refer my angular JS as separate file in fieldtype.*.cshtml

    Hi Anand

    Am I right that you want to use Umbraco forms DatePicker from the backoffice on the front end of the site?

    It's not possible to use Umbraco directives on the front. Try to use jquery UI datepicker or some other.

    What JS framework do you use?

    Thanks Alex.

    I understood that I cannot use backoffice directoring to render fields on Front-end (is it possible to use this in future ?).

    I am using Pikaday library for date range control.

    I think it will not be possible to use in the future. They are for backoffice
