Silk UI calendar controls, manually type date


Is there any way to be able to also type in a date when using the Silk UI calendar picker.

Sometimes to choose a year in the past takes too much clicking to get to, it would be easier just to type it in.
Imagine trying to pick a birth date for some born in 1940 etc.

Thanks in advance for any advice

I don't know how to do it with the silk UI calendar, but just want to add that if you use the richwidgets calendar you can do that.
