Perspective Datetime Picker Before Epoch

Using perspective in ignition 8, is there any way to use the datetime input to select a time before 1970? In vision and elsewhere the epoch value would be signed allowing a date further back than 1970, but for the life of me I can not figure out how to get the datetime input in perspective to behave the same.

Thanks in advance.

I have also experienced this issue and would like to know if there is a fix.

I’ll submit the dreaded “me too” post.
I want to use this component for inputting a birthdate, and there are many times the date will be prior to 1969.

Looking for a solution, because I love the component and really would like to use it for older dates.
