jQuery date picker example

jQuery date picker

The jQuery date picker is tied to a standard form input field.  Focus on the input (click, or use the tab key) to open an interactive calendar in a small overlay.  Choose a date, click elsewhere on the page (blur the input), or hit the Esc key to close. If a date is chosen, feedback is shown as the input’s value.

As you aware we can use the datepicker for date fields like date of birth and other date fields instead of giving an option to enter the date through input boxes we can achieve this easily by using jquery datepicker.

Code for jQuery datepicker example:


<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<title>jQuery UI Datepicker - Default functionality</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/themes/base/jquery-ui.css">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.js"></script>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<script>
$( function() {
$( "#datepicker" ).datepicker();
} );
</script>
</head>
<body>

<p>Date: <input type="text" id="datepicker" readonly="true"></p>
