Can the Date Picker default to the browser's own date selector?

For the modern mobile browsers now supports the <input type="date"> very well with it's own calendar date selector control. 

Is there a way to have the KendoUI DatePicker use the browser calendar selector if available? Or is this something we need to code around to make this scenario work?

Yes, the KendoUI does work on mobile, but the users are asking to use their built in picker instead for ease of use and it makes the web page fell more like an phone app. 

 

Thank you

Hi Brick,

Unfortunately, the desired functionality is not supported. I can suggest implementing some custom logic, that will conditionally initialize the Kendo UI DatePicker from a given input, only if the date type is not supported by the respective brower.
