Step by step tutorial regarding datepicker basic modifications.

arrow downDon't want past dates selectable?

you will need to edit the date picker javascript code.

the code may look like:

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});


you will need to add minDate: '+0'

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
minDate: '+0',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});

arrow downDatapicker Start on Monday

the code may look like:

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});


you will need to add firstDay: 1

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
firstDay: 1,
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});

arrow downShow week number column

the code may look like:

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});


you will need to add showWeek: true

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
showWeek: true,
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});

arrow downShow multiple number of months

the code may look like:

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});


you will need to add numberOfMonths: [2, 3]

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
numberOfMonths: [2, 3],
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});


This would show 6 months in 2 rows and 3 columns

arrow downChange datepicker language

English / Western formatting is the default. You will need to edit the date picker javascript code and add code that replace the default values

the code may look like:

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});


you would need to manually add values in your own language for
prevText:
nextText:
monthNames:
dayNamesMin:
weekHeader:

Here's how it's works in Norwegian

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
prevText: 'Forrige',
nextText: 'Neste',
monthNames: ['Januar','Februar','Mars','April','Mai','Juni','Juli','August','September','Oktober','November','Desember'],
dayNamesMin: ['Sø','Ma','Ti','On','To','Fr','Lø'],
weekHeader: 'Uke',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});

arrow downDisplay inline

Display the datepicker embedded in the page instead of in an overlay. Simply call .datepicker() on a div instead of an input.

change

<input id="datepicker_1" name="datepicker_1" type="text" />


To

<div id="datepicker_1"></div>

arrow downRestrict date range

Restrict the range of selectable dates with the minDate and maxDate options. Set the beginning and end dates as actual dates (new Date(2009, 1 - 1, 26)), as a numeric offset from today (-20), or as a string of periods and units ('+1M +10D'). For the last, use 'D' for days, 'W' for weeks, 'M' for months, or 'Y' for years.

the code may look like:

$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'mm/dd/yy',
showAnim: 'show',
minDate: '-20',
maxDate: '+1M +10D'
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});
