A z3c.form datepicker widget (Maintainer Thomas Buchberger)

Project description


ftw.datepicker provides a date/time picker widget for your z3c.form fields using the jQuery based DateTimePicker widget from XDSoft ( It is compatible with Plone 4.3 and 5.1.



Add ftw.datepicker to your buildout configuration:

eggs +=

Import the generic setup profile for ftw.datepicker.


The datetime fields are not timezone aware! To implement it, please see how to do it at:


You can apply the widget to your field with the help of plone.directives.form:

from plone.directives import form
from plone.supermodel import model
from ftw.datepicker.widget import DateTimePickerWidgetFactory

class MySchema(model.Schema):
    due_date = schema.Datetime()

This renders a widget which allows to select the date and time.

You can pass a custom configuration of the widget like this:

from plone.directives import form
from plone.supermodel import model
from ftw.datepicker.widget import DateTimePickerWidgetFactory

class MySchema(model.Schema):
    form.widget('due_date', DateTimePickerWidgetFactory, config=my_config)
    due_date = schema.Datetime()

config can either be a dict or a callable which produces a dict. The value is then converted to a JSON object and passed to the template for the widget to be picked up. Example: {‘format’: ‘d.m.Y’, ‘timepicker’: False}.

See for a full list of options.

You could apply the widget even to a TextLine field if you need to.


The jQuery plugin can be downloaded and extracted into its own folder inside ftw/datepicker/resources/js. Only the files defined in the profile’s CSS and JS registry will be used.
