  • for populate a filled out value at frontend you can do something like that:

    *  Create PHP DateTime object from Date Piker Value
    *  this example expects the value to be saved in the format: yymmdd (JS) = Ymd (PHP)
    $date = DateTime::createFromFormat('Ymd', get_field('date_picker'));
    echo $date->format('d-m-Y');

    or did you wish to prefill a datepicker field?
