add a jquery date picker to your text box

This JQuery UI Date picker is good if you want to add a nice dropdown date selector to your input box, rather than having to type in the date manually.

Requires:

  1. JQuery 
  2. JQuery UI
  3. Document Ready (to add the datepicker)

HTML

<h2>Demo</h2>
<p class='alert alert-primary mb20'>Click below to launch the date picker.</p>
<div class="form-group">
<input type="text" id="date_picker" placeholder="click here to add the date">
</div>

Javascript

$(document).ready(function(){
 $( "#date_picker" ).datepicker({
      dateFormat: "d MM, yy",
      changeMonth: true,
      changeYear: true
 });
});

Click below to launch the date picker.
