So date fields are added using Varien_Data_Form_Element_Date. What you could do would be to look into this file and check the function getElementHtml

I did in c.e 1.8.1 and found that the z-index was empty. I'm assuming it's being attached to the dom wrong, as it's using some khtml browser speciality code. Anyways, I got it working again by adding

cal.element.style.zIndex = 99999;

in calendar-setup.js

  • Tried to find the problem in it but could not. I even replaced the file content with the content of a Magento store where the date picker is working properly but it did not make any difference. Oct 19, 2016 at 4:58
  • ok try this.. rply if it's work or not. ? Oct 19, 2016 at 7:17
  • there is no z-index variable in the calendar-setup.js, I checked to update the value there. Oct 19, 2016 at 12:16
  • I tried adding as you suggested but the box is still empty even after i selected a date it is not getting selected and filled up. Oct 19, 2016 at 12:24
  • problem is date doesn't select ? Oct 19, 2016 at 15:19
