@marcysutton speaking of datepicker, do you know if the plan is still to have it ready by end of February as planned in the Github milestones ?

@kosz that's the hope! There are internal teams that need it.

Hi, is there a way to do media query programatically? For example, I want to display dialogs in $mdDialog on desktops, and in $mdBottomSheet on mobile devices. So I want to know which is the device resolution from my controller.

@marcysutton do you know if the datepicker component will enable easy year-selection ? For example, in a form to select birthdate

From a layout and usability perspective these new date/time pickers are nice
for smartphones
but not for a web app running on tablet or even more desktop
no desktop user wants to open kind of dialog to get a datepicker...

bastienJS we can only hope that they will provide an alternative of embedding or poping up a non modal, tooltip like datepicker underneath their inputs

@bastienJS I think one of the points of MAterial Design is responsiveness ... so I feel confident about what they will put out, but let's see

Unclear on what affect theme.backgroundPalette has, for example if I set this to "grey" where would this background color be seen. What I'd like to do is set the overall application background color. If I do this with body style/css I have to set all other item background like cards etc. as well - is that correct?
