Example

Attached to a field with the format specified via options:

<input type="text" value="02-16-2012" id="datepicker">
$('#datepicker').datepicker({
    format: 'mm-dd-yyyy'
});

Attached to a field with the format specified via data tag:

<input type="text" value="02/16/12" data-date-format="mm/dd/yy" id="datepicker" >
$('#datepicker').datepicker();

As component:

<div class="input-append date" id="datepicker" data-date="12-02-2012" data-date-format="dd-mm-yyyy">
    <input size="16" type="text" value="12-02-2012" readonly>
    <span class="add-on"><i class="icon-th"></i></span>
</div>
$('#datepicker').datepicker();

Attached to non-field element, using events to work with the date values.

<div class="alert alert-error" id="alert">
    <strong>Oh snap!</strong>
</div>
<table class="table">
    <thead>
        <tr>
          <th>
              Start date
              <a href="#" class="btn small" id="date-start" data-date-format="yyyy-mm-dd" data-date="2012-02-20">Change</a>
          </th>
          <th>

              <a href="#" class="btn small" id="date-end" data-date-format="yyyy-mm-dd" data-date="2012-02-25">Change</a>
          </th>
        </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
        <tr>
          <td id="date-start-display">2012-02-20</td>

var startDate = new Date(2012,1,20);
var endDate = new Date(2012,1,25);
$('#date-start')
    .datepicker()
    .on('changeDate', function(ev){

            $('#date-start-display').text($('#date-start').data('date'));
        }
        $('#date-start').datepicker('hide');
    });
$('#date-end')
    .datepicker()
    .on('changeDate', function(ev){
        if (ev.date.valueOf() < startDate.valueOf()){
            $('#alert').show().find('strong').text('The end date must be after the start date.');
        } else {
            $('#alert').hide();
            endDate = new Date(ev.date);
            $('#date-end-display').text($('#date-end').data('date'));

hide

Arguments: None

Hide the datepicker.

$('#datepicker').datepicker('hide');

update

Arguments: None

Update the datepicker with the current input value.

$('#datepicker').datepicker('update');

setStartDate

Arguments:

  • startDate (String)

Sets a new lower date limit on the datepicker.

$('#datepicker').datepicker('setStartDate', '2012-01-01');

Omit startDate (or provide an otherwise falsey value) to unset the limit.

$('#datepicker').datepicker('setStartDate');
$('#datepicker').datepicker('setStartDate', null);

$('#datepicker').datepicker('setEndDate', '2012-12-31');

Events

Datepicker class exposes a few events for manipulating the dates.

show

Fired when the date picker is displayed.

hide

Fired when the date picker is hidden.

changeDate

Fired when the date is changed.

$('#date-end')
    .datepicker()
    .on('changeDate', function(ev){
        if (ev.date.valueOf() < date-start-display.valueOf()){
            ....
        }
    });

Keyboard support

The datepicker includes some keyboard navigation:

up, down, left, right arrow keys

By themselves, left/right will move backward/forward one day, up/down will move back/forward one week.

With the shift key, up/left will move backward one month, down/right will move forward one month.

With the ctrl key, up/left will move backward one year, down/right will move forward oone year.

Shift+ctrl behaves the same as ctrl -- that is, it does not change both month and year simultaneously, only the year.

escape

The escape key can be used to hide and re-show the datepicker; this is necessary if the user wants to manually edit the value.

enter

When the picker is visible, enter will simply hide it. When the picker is not visible, enter will have normal effects -- submitting the current form, etc.
