A type of ComboBox that that allows the user type a date or choose a date from a calendar. By default, the input portion of the combo box is a DateTextBox, and the dropdown portion is a CalendarMonthNavigator. This control is used by a ResponsiveDate control on full browsers.

See DateTextBox for a discussion of supported date formats.

By default, a DateComboBox's dropdown icon is a downward-pointing arrow. This can be changed to a calendar icon to both suggest to the user which type of data the field accepts and to indicate what will appear if the clicks the button. A useful set of free calendar icons can be found in the Iconic icon set, available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. One of the Iconic calendar icons is shown in the demo above.

This control was the subject of a user interface blog post.
