jQuery UI Datepicker
jQuery UI Datepicker is a popular user interface component that allows users to easily pick dates from a calendar widget. It's built on top of the jQuery library and provides a customizable and interactive way to select dates. Here are some details and examples to help you understand how jQuery UI Datepicker works:
To use jQuery UI Datepicker, you need to include the jQuery library and the jQuery UI library in your HTML file. You can include them using CDN links or by downloading the libraries and linking to them locally.
To create a datepicker widget, you need an HTML input element. You can then apply the datepicker function to that input element.
You can specify the format in which the selected date should be displayed and parsed. Common formats include "mm/dd/yyyy" and "yy-mm-dd".
Restricting Date Range
You can set the minimum and maximum selectable dates to restrict the range of dates users can pick.
Instead of a popup calendar, you can create an inline datepicker directly in the HTML.
jQuery UI Datepicker supports localization for different languages and regions.
You can attach event handlers to different datepicker events, such as when a date is selected.
jQuery UI Datepicker allows you to apply custom themes to match your application's design.
