D. P. Story submitted the datepicker-pro package. Version number: 2016-05-06 License type: lppl1.2 Summary description: Create a popup datepicker using SWF Announcement text:
One of the (many) deficiencies of Adobe Acrobat Reader/Adobe Acrobat is that they have never supported a proper date picker. This package now supplies one. The \datepicker command creates a readonly text field and a push button to its right. Pressing on the push button brings forth a SWF file displaying a calendar. The user then chooses a date from the calendar, the the date is transferred to the text field. This is a "pro" application, which, in the jargon of AeB, means that Adobe Distiller is required as the PDF creator. The only drivers supported, as a result, are dvips and dvipsone. As with all such special features, to experience the datepicker, Adobe Reader or Acrobat are needed. Most other PDF readers do not support form field, rich media annotations, and JavaScript.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/datepicker-pro More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/datepicker-pro We are supported by the TeX User Groups. Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Ina Dau
