Hi,
I have a question about the icon that displays when using the Type="Datefield" feature.

Q:  Is there a way to have the mouse arrow turn to a hand (link hover) when it is over the calendar icon associated with this very nice CF feature?

Thanks in advance,
hefterr

Hi erikTsomik,
Thanks for the quick answer.

Could you please "hum a few bars" as there is no "anchor tag" to add the css hover effect?  The code is : <cfinput name="fromDate" type="datefield" class="inputboxShort"  required="no" size="40" maxlength="10" readonly="readonly" />

Thanks,
hefterr

The code will vary, based on the name of your form, but basically, the calendar image is automatically assigned an id like so: [field name][form name]_cf_button.  The code sample below, for example, would have coldfusion produce this calendar image:

<img id="fromDatemyForm_cf_button" src="/CFIDE/scripts/ajax/resources/cf/images/DateChooser.png"/>

Your css should then match the generated id
<html>
<head>
	<title>Experts-Exchange</title>
	<style type="text/css">
		#fromDatemyForm_cf_button {
			cursor: pointer;
		}
	</style>
</head>

<body>

<cfform name="myForm">
	<cfinput name="fromDate" type="datefield" class="inputboxShort"  required="no" size="40" maxlength="10" readonly="readonly" />
</cfform>

</body>
</html>

Hi js vaughn,
This solution sounds TERRIFIC!  I won't be able to try it until Monday as I am away.   I didn't even know there was a CSS attribute for the cursor - as I never needed it before.  I also didn't realize the image was assigned a generated ID.

Thanks again,
hefterr
