Repeat Datepicker

Repeat Datepicker

I have a php page in a backend website that displays orders from a database in a repeat table. The records displayed in the repeat table are individually updatable. One of the updatable fields is a "shipdate" text field that I have applied the date picker to. It functions correctly on the first displayed record however all the following record just display textboxes and when clicked the date picker doesn't display. Do I need to add some kind of a repeat function to the date picker? Any advice on this would be great. Thank yo so much.

I am able to get this to work on the same page if I duplicate the datepicker script at the bottom of the page for each field. HOWEVER, won't work in the real world as each date field realistically has a name like event_date[] where each field is a row of PHP records. Make sense? I don't want to have to repeat the function for each date field but would like to be able to make the function recognize the event date field based on php row number or something like that?

You can achieve this with a mixture of Javascript and PHP.

Rename the ID of your date picker so that it includes the record ID on the end (making it unique).

Then, using PHP, loop the Javascript that the date picker creates, again adding the record ID onto the end of the ID for the date picker.

Hope that helps?
