You may need to specify calendar dates, and since keying dates may be not convenient, ALX provides users with the simple and handy graphical control for specifying dates - Date chooser.
To open the Date chooser dialog
In the lower part of the dialog you can see the information about the current date (real time, not the model time). The current date is displayed in the calendar with blue text in the blue outline.
To choose some other day from the same month
To choose a day of some other month or year, you should choose this year and/or month first using the navigation panel in the upper part of the dialog:
Clicking the label in the center of the navigation panel you switch the calendar one level up: from date choosing mode - to month choosing; from month choosing to year choosing, and so on.
The arrow buttons located at the edges of the panel allow users to navigate to the previous and succeeding month/year (it depends on the current context) correspondingly.

from some other month of the same year
In case you need to choose some other year, you can switch to year choosing mode in the same way by clicking the year label in the navigation panel.
Moreover, you can key the required date right in the date field.
