The WDateEdit widget is a line edit with support for
date entry, using a WCalendar in a popup for editing
the date. In the future, it is foreseen that this widget can evolve to
use browser support for easy date entry.
By default the selected date is shown in the format defined by your WLocale settings as in the first example. In the second example the format is set to
"dd MM yyyy".
The date picker offers about the same functionality as the newer
WDateEdit, but with a slightly different API. Most
importantly, the date editor is a form widget, and integrates
better with other parts in Wt. It is in general more convenient
to use the newer WDateEdit class instead.
