How to link date field/list box to input box?

I need to create a input box that functions the same way as a list box that contains the date field? Basically convert list box to input box?

I know I can use a list box but I prefer the list box because of the look.

I found a sample that someone posted in a forum, however the list box is not linked to the field (see attached).

I need to link the value selected in the input box to the field.  Then I need a way to default the list box to the max date when the user selects clear (via a button)?  Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated?

Yes, the Date format is a very hard theme!

I recomend to use date fields every time, not timestamps or text dates, because is easier to filter.
