How to change html type for Form Field

Recommended Posts

On the contact form on this page, I am wanting to change the html type of the 'date' field.

 

Here is the desired change:

Original:

<input class="field-element text" type="text" id="text-yui_3_17_2_1_1541027265450_300449-field">

Desired:

<input class="field-element text" type="date" id="text-yui_3_17_2_1_1541027265450_300449-field">

 

Could someone help me know what custom html to inject into the page's header?

In order change attribute of HTML, you need javascript which is only available on Business Plan/ higher one. What is the final result you want to achieve?

I have business plan, so just after help with what javascript code to use.

The intended result is to have the html type for the form field be date, so that web browsers can allow the date picker for data input. (See attached screenshot showing how this would look!)

The idea was inspired by zoxoxu's post on the following thread. But the code I haven't been able to get working.

Here is what I have tried injecting into the header of the page:

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.1.min.js" integrity="sha256-o88AwQnZB+VDvE9tvIXrMQaPlFFSUTR+nldQm1LuPXQ=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

<script>

  $( document ).ready(function() {

    $('#text-yui_3_17_2_1_1541027265450_300449-field').attr("type", "date");

});

</script>
