R – nullable datepicker that I can bind to


I am looking for a datepicker like what microsoft provides, but it doesn't support null values, and since this is tied to a nullable field on a database that isn't acceptable.

I found this one, but according to the comments at the bottom of the page it has issues with binding to a database. I also have one in my project that I inherited, but it has similar issues (sometimes it shows values, sometimes it doesn't). Does anyone know of one that works?

Best Solution

Use a date picker to populate a textbox and if they want the field to be null, just erase the contents of the textbox (and then handle the blank input accordingly).

This also provides the added benefit of allowing the user to type in their date if they so choose.
