Can't scoll the page when pressing inside a DatePicker popup


you have an open DatePicker on a mobile device and want to scroll up or down.
If you press and hold the screen inside the popup you can scroll but when you release the screen the date is selected and the DatePicker closes.
Shouldn't the DatePicker stay open because the user just wanted to scroll the page?

If you do the same with a DateRangePicker it's working. The date is selected but stay's open.

Thank you!

Hello Martin,

The described behavior is expected and will be observed not only on mobile devices. The popup of the DatePicker as well as in other components such as DropDownList or ComboBox will be closed when scrolling. I would suggest you take a look at the following forum thread regarding the DropDownList where the issue is discussed:


In the thread, there is also a possible approach for preventing the closing of the popup while scrolling. Here you will find a small Dojo example based on the suggestion from the thread where DatePicker is used.

I hope you will find the provided suggestion helpful
