Weird <input type="date"> Behaviour

Hi all. I have this weird problem using date input element.


If I include date input element using JavaScript&colon; (#mainBody is the id for <body>)


var strAddEle = "";

strAddEle += '<p><input type="date" id="dateTo"></p>';
strAddEle += '<p><input type="date" id="dateFrom"></p>';


 when I test on 9900 device, I cannot click using trackpad on the input field to open up the date selection. But if I tap on the input field using the screen, the date selection will appear.


However if I include date input element directly into html. I can click using trackpad.


<body id="mainBody">
<p><input type="date" id="dateTo"></p>
<p><input type="date" id="dateFrom"></p>


Can anyone please advice? Thank you.

I had the same issue for different input (for DropDown menus) with bbUI.js framework and I did some styling then refresh as they mentioned in their codes, after that worked fine.


I thought I would tell you about this so you may benifit from it.


it was like ...


var dropdown = document.getElementById("cars");

dropdown = bb.dropdown.style( dropdown );



Good Luck in your work. Smiley Happy
