A DateEdit is a data handling widget that defines a line edit box with a button that opens a calendar window, allowing the user to select a date value

The dateEdit underlying formField can be associated with a database column by changing the fieldType property to TABLE_COLUMN, and specifying the tableName and columnName properties.
