jQuery Date Entry 2.0.1

A jQuery plugin that makes it really easy to enter the current date and then easily adjust it with the help of special UI controls
jQuery Date Entry uses a "spinner" which has 5 parts as seen in the thumbnail image.

Clicking on the center will fill the input field with the user's local date (or a default value).

The left and right buttons are used to select the sections of the date format (day, month, year).

The up and down arrows control the value shown in the selected field and are used to modify it (UP increases the value, DOWN decreases the value).

Overall jQuery Date Entry makes entering dates inside form fields a lot easier and removes the need of typing anything in the field at all.

Main features:

  • Works with various date formats
  • Accepts direct date entry via the keyboard
  • Can restrict to a minimum and/or maximum date value
  • Can be used via the keyboard or with the mouse
  • Various localizations available
  • The spinner controls are customizable
  • Works for time range selections
