Setting a minViewMode for Shiny dateInput



I’m trying to figure out a way to minimize the widget view mode in a dateInput, so when the user selects a month, the widget does NOT drill down to a day.

There’s one post on stackoverflow, but I’m hoping to find a easier/cleaner method.

Any help would be much appreciated.



Hi Scott,

Sorry for the late response, but I have implemented (or rather, used an implementation I found on SO), of a month picker widget. See here for relevant post.

I’ve included a minimum working example on and the source code in available on my GitHub.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
