I have a form with a Date Picker with the default value set to “today()”
That works ok and I get today’s date in the field but I want to use this as a default date and alow the user to change from this date if they want to.
The date seems to be locked and I cant change it.
How do I set this so that I can modify the date after a default value has been set?

Thanks

It's not read only, is it?  (I know, but I have to ask...)

I have created a new form using a date picker and today() as the default value and it does not have the same problem so i assume there is something else on the form causing the problem.
I will re-build the form and hopefully that will fix it.
Thanks for your help
