Thank you for getting back to us.
A possible solution is to set an arrow as a background image of the DateInput
. Then you could disable the button and set ShowPopUpOnFocus to true. For your convenience I prepared a small sample and attached it to this thread.
Please give it a try and let me know if I could provide you any further assistance.
