Date of Birth

I'm trying to get a user to enter their date of birth in the correct format. Has anyone come across a suitable method of doing this? The data needs to be available for reporting.

The best solution I have come up with is having three separate slides for entering day (DD), month (MM) and year (YYYY) and then on each slide clicking the field will link to the correct slide where it can be edited. Although this doesn't restrict the number of characters which can be entered.

Maybe there is a Javascript alternative which might be better?

I dont think there is a javascript alternative, you could use javascript to validate that a correct date has been entered and in this way only use one text entry field.  You could even calculate their DOB and ask them to verify this is correct and this way ensure their DOB is correct, you could have it reportable by using a text entry question

Hope this helps
