i have tried using send keys but it is directly clicking to the year part.

Try clearing the existing value first as suggested.

I followed the above approach but it is just changing year part. It is not click ing in the day and then month
Pls advise
The application is developed under jqwidgets

Firstly I done tabout from previous field using keys.Tab
Then I deleted the existing value using keys.Delete
Finally I entered the date as 11122018
Then it worked
