Clear button on iOS native date control does not clear date



The clear button on date control does not clear the date when Pega application is accessed via a browser on iOS device. It works as expected on an Android device.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a Date field to refresh or submit the section on change.
  2. Run time, populate this date field with a value and then try clearing the value. Observe that default value is retained.

Run time behavior:



Root Cause

This is the default behavior or iOS platform, and its not Pega specific issue.


This is the default behavior of iOS platform, that is, on clicking 'Clear' on native date picker control the field is restored to default value rather than being set to blank value.

​'Clear' button in iOS is a way to undo changes done to default value of field. Whereas on Android device 'Clear' button would set the value to blank.
