New on CTAN: datepicker-pro

D. P. Story submitted the

                datepicker-pro

package.

Version number: 2016-05-06
License type: lppl1.2

Summary description: Create a popup datepicker using SWF

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

One of the (many) deficiencies of Adobe Acrobat Reader/Adobe Acrobat is
that they have never supported a proper date picker. This package now
supplies one. The \datepicker command creates a readonly text field and
a push button to its right. Pressing on the push button brings forth a
SWF file displaying a calendar. The user then chooses a date from the
calendar, the the date is  transferred to the text field. This is a
"pro" application, which, in the jargon of AeB, means that Adobe
Distiller is required as the PDF creator. The only drivers supported,
as a result, are dvips and dvipsone. As with all such special features,
to experience the datepicker, Adobe Reader or Acrobat are needed. Most
other PDF readers do not support form field, rich media annotations,
and JavaScript.
