Date Picker for Visualforce Input tag of type DATE does not work in IE and Firefox but works in Chrome
|Knowledge Article Number||000206142|
|Description||If you are using <apex:input> VF tag of type DATE, you may notice that the date picker will not work in IE and Firefox . It only works in Chrome.
apex:input supports newer HTML5 input types but not all browsers support date type of input element to provide date-picking UI. Even the latest Firefox doesn't support it, and shows usual text input field instead of date-picker.
|Resolution||An Alternate Solution to use Date Picker is to use <Apex:inputField> instead of <Apex:input>. But this only works with Standard /Custom Object Fields and does not work for Controller properties.|
