Is there any way to set the format of

<input type="date" />

. how can i get what will be the format of this field?

Actually i want to show native date-picker of mobile device that's why i picked this type of input. if is there any alternate for that field that also will b good to have.

Sorry if i said anything stupid. Please guide me


The format is YYYY-MM-DD. You cannot change it.

$('#myinput').val('2013-12-31'); sets value
