Entering your date of birth into a form should be straight forward, but I've seen a few different approaches to handling this.
The most popular choices seem to be
- Freeform (perhaps with an input hint to imply how it should be filled in)
- Datepicker (uses selects from a calender popup)
- 3 select boxes (makes sure data is valid, but for a large year range might not be easy to fill in)
What is the best approach to entering your date of brith you have seen? how would you handle this? Does anyone have any studies of usability tests for this?
