Seeking custom scriptrunner code to make a data picker field appear in JIRA even when empty

I am looking to have a Date Picker field display in JIRA even when it is empty.

I found some awesome code that does this, but it is written for a select list field type (String).
I would like it to work for Date Picker field types.

Here is the code:

One user states it should be a small change to make it work for other field types:

I'm not a programmer and can't make that change.

I also wonder about the configurationScript.groovy file. Will I need to make multiple copies of it if I have multiple fields?

I have a quick question. Is there a reason that you need the empty date picker to appear in the issue? The reason i'm asking is to try to understand if there is a better way to solve the problem :-)
