Date Dialog in Google Docs Sheet

Google Docs Sheets puts a calendar dialog by clicking on the formatted cell as the date, allowing the user to select the date in the dialog instead of typing it.

The idea is to implement the date selection dialog on the mouse cursor after clicking on the cell (just like in Google Docs Sheet).

Good idea. F2 enters the common edit mode while double-click opens the date picker. Perhaps a context menu entry "Enter date" that opens a picker on an empty cell helps people who work on a not so common sheet, e.g. MM/DD/YY instead of DD.MM.YYYY. It would be disabled when the cell is not empty.

A date picker should provide means to go the next/previous month and to jump to a different year. Google fails at here, btw.
