How to pass a string into a non typing calendar

Hello i have a string that contains a date formatted like this 15.09.2019

I need to pass that string into a non typing calendar thats inside a browser.

I am not able to type anything to the calendar only pick by date, Also the calendar display januar,february etc and not 01.02…2019 , 01.01.2019 etc

I have already looked upon the forum but have not found any solutions and most of them are to complicated for me

Nope i cant type anything into the calendar only pick date. Else i would have used type into funciton.

It looks like the same calendar you have here in the chatbox

Hi @langsem

Then you need to pass the string value into selector based on the property

Hi @langsem

Can you show the selector for choosing year/month and date

The date picker looks like this

Hi @langsem

Do one thing

Use Set web attribute activity and pass the selector along with the format you have mentioned it should get populated and after that click on Date picker symbol to make sure the value is there
