Date picker (intial value and best practices)

Hello all,

I am using the D&D UI for a project and I have a page with the profil of my user with its birthday.
I wonder if it is possible to set the date picker with an intial value that i have in a app variable ?

In fact for UI consistency I put the birthdate in a text input because the date input looks totally different than others. Do you have exemples of nice forms with date input because what I am doing is very very ugly :frowning:

Thanks for you help !!!

I know it’s not for a birthday, but I think it looks attractive.
