How To Customize a Date Field Using HTML &CSS

Hello everyone. Welcome to today’s tutorial on Codewithrandom. We’ll learn How To Customize a Date Field Using HTML &CSS which is basically used in filling the online forms to enter dob or various data purpose.

In Today’s session, We will use HTML & CSS to complete this Project. In which the HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) will help to create the structure of the project with the required attributes & elements.

Then the CSS (Cascading Stylesheet) will help us to style the project with colors and align the defined attributes in the CSS code.

I hope you have got an idea about the project.

HTML Code for Date Customize

<html lang="en">
<head>
    <title>Styling Input Date</title>
    <!--Google Font-->
    <link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.gstatic.com">
    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Roboto+Mono:wght@500&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
    <!--Stylesheet-->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
   <input type="date">
</body>
</html>

This HTML Code contains fully defined attributes to set up this project. And for that only we have just defined the date function which contains dates of all the years. Let us code the CSS part to style it and aligned it.

CSS Code for Date Customize

*,
*:before,
*:after{
    background: blue;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    box-sizing: border-box;
}
input[type="date"]{
    background-color: orange;
    padding: 15px;
    position: absolute;
    transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
    top: 50%;
    left: 50%;
    font-family: "Roboto Mono",monospace;
    color: #ffffff;
    font-size: 18px;
    border: none;
    outline: none;
    border-radius: 5px;
}
::-webkit-calendar-picker-indicator{
    background-color: #ffffff;
    padding: 5px;
    cursor: pointer;
    border-radius: 3px;
}

In this CSS code, we have styled the structure one by one first we added a bg color to the body. Then the function date which was defined in the HTML code has been styled in the textbox which has the label dd-mm-yyyy given the separate bg color as compared to the calendar logo in the text field. Let us see the final output of the project Custom Date Input using HTML & CSS | how to style date input CSS
