[Resolved] I'm displaying a page with a date, but the datepicker doesn't appear.

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:
Date field with date picker not working

Solution:
Generally, when you face issue with date type field try to resolve your issue by deactivating all third-party plugins as well as with the default theme to check for any possible conflicts with any of the plugins or themes. You should also check your browser's console for any possible JS errors.

Mostly its due to plugin or theme JS conflict.

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

1)
Could you please try to resolve your issue by deactivating all third-party plugins as well as with the default theme to check for any possible conflicts with any of the plugins or themes?

2)
Could you please tell me the version of Toolset plugins ?

Hi.

I disabled all plugins but that didn't resolve the issue. I then re-enabled the plugins and changed to the toolset starter theme and I could then see the date picker and enter a date. So it looks like an incompatibility with the Stockholm theme.

Do you have any advice on how to fix that?
I'm using Toolset Types v2.0.1, Toolset Views v2.0 and Toolset CRED v1.6

Thanks,
David

Turns out is was the theme's fault - The datepicker z-index was 101 which was causing it to be hidden. I've overridden the z-index and now it works.
