XForms/Date Range Search

Motivation[edit]

You want to limit search results based on one or more dates within items.

Method[edit]

We will create a XForms application that will have two calendar selectors. We can use the built-in calendar selector or allow users to select the year, month, day values separately.

Month Code Table[edit]
