To preface this, I'm using CiviCRM's integration on Drupal 7, with the Webform integration module.
I'm looking to store a number of custom fields as a year. It appears that I am able to use the Date field type to store a date in the format of "YYYY", which sounds like what I want to do. However, the widget that is presented to the user to input the data requires you to choose a specific date from a date picker rather than a year, even if it only stores the year.
On top of that, when I use the Webform module integration with CiviCRM, the widget that I am presented with has 3 dropdowns, one for month, one for day, and one for year.
Ideally both the backend widget and the Webform widget would simply be a select box that allows you to pick only the year starting about 60 years back and ends 20 years in the future. I'm sure I could just make a select box to do just that, but I don't want to manually edit the values in a select box just to get a simple date field.
Does anyone know if there is a way to handle this the way I'm describing or am I stuck using a full date field to simply store a year?
