Different Control Field for Forms

Hi All,


Just wondering if anyone has had luck with changing the type of control used for a form?


My scenario is;

I have a date field that requires to be populated, and it is currently showing as a drop down control.

I was hoping to change this to either a combo box or text field to allow users to manually type the time in.


I also note that the 'Update' property of this datacard is as below


dt_AbsentFrom.SelectedDate + Time(Value(HourValue_AbsentFrom.Selected.Value), Value(MinuteValue_AbsentFrom.Selected.Value), 0)

I'm assuming that if the change is possible, that the update properties would have to be changed as well?


Thank you 🙂
