The key is adding the JS snippet below to your webform CSS/JS (admin/structure/webform/manage/WEBFORM_ID/settings/assets)

Drupal.webform = Drupal.webform || {};
Drupal.webform.datePicker = Drupal.webform.datePicker || {};
Drupal.webform.datePicker.options = Drupal.webform.datePicker.options || {};
Drupal.webform.datePicker.options.buttonImage = 'https://cdn3.iconfinder.com/data/icons/database-line/128/calendar_date_schedule_datepicker-128.png';

  • First we need to create a custom module called admissionform, follow this path modules/custom/admissionform
  • We need to create 2 files inside the custom module called admissionform.module and admission.info.yml

admissionform.info.yml

name: admissionform
description: To change the calander icon.
package: Custom

type: module
core: 8.x

admissionform.form.module

<?php
use Drupal\Core\Form\FormStateInterface;

// Hook to change the calendar button image
function admissionform_form_alter(&$form, FormStateInterface $form_state, $form_id) {
 if($form_id=="webform_submission_collateral_form_add_form"){
    // var_dump($form);
    $form['elements']['date_of_event_']['#attached']['drupalSettings']['webform']['datePicker']['buttonImage'] = '/modules/custom/admissionform/images/elements/date-calendar-1.png';
  }
}

The icon image should be put at this path modules/custom/admissionform/images/elements/date-calendar-1.png

To know form_id, we can do var_dump($form_id) and to get the attributes of the form we can do var_dump($form)
