I'm hoping to enhance an existing plugin's setting page by adding an 'end date' form. I know how to add text and other form fields but was wondering if there is standard function that will render a year/data/time form. No sense in re-inventing the wheel.

Thanks for all tips.


Could this work for you?

<link type="text/css" href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.10/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.11/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
        onSelect: function(dateText, inst) { $("#thedate").val(dateText); } }); 

    <td style="vertical-align:top;">
            <h3>End Date</h3>
            <li><p>(Pick a date from the calendar below)</p></li>
                <div style="margin-bottom:5px;" type="text" id="datepicker"></div>
                Date Selected: <input type="text" id="thedate" name="date"/> 
  • Thanks rman. I was actually looking for a standard framework but this script method will do just nicely. [newb] – awoz Aug 2 '11 at 0:40
