I noticed that years in date picker are all above year 2000 and you need to open year drop down field several times to scroll to the year 1970 The task is to make form with birth date and all of the expected dates are in 19… range. People filling up the form are not clever enough to open years menu several times, and I noticed that simple change on cfCal.fullyearstart from 20 to 19 does the trick. However, there is no setting for that in cforms setup interface, and the javascript is dynamically generated. How to change this value?

You're spot on, this datePicker variable/attribute will be added to cforms (Global Settings page/datepicker) shortly.

Another vote for this feature please. Seems like a major oversight in an otherwise brilliant plugin. I would also suggest that adding it as a global feature is not the right place as you might want one date field to be date of birth, but another date field in athe same or another form to be a current date, therefore the date range should be selectable at the field level.
