We can use a Date widget easily as a dashboard filter, the display would be perfect to put next to the List widget.
Until you set the layout properties with Row Height = Fine, which will change the Vertical spacing to 0. The widgets now become too thin.
As per normal, we will try to extend the height by 1 pixel for all widgets used as filters. The list widget looks just fine, but not for the Date widget, it does not look good at all, the label font size is too big, and the value not visible at all.
Solution: change the Date widget to the Filter widget
