Format YYYY-MM-DD Datepicker from jqueryui

I am working with http://jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/ to place in my html a datepicker so the user just click & select.

It works fine, but I need to have the text/input field return the format YYYY-MM-DD, its returning MM-DD-YYYY.

I have reviewed thier section on date format (http://jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/#date-formats), but it seems that I need to have the date format window present in order to work.

How can I format the line to work strictly with: YYYY-MM-DD

Heres my code:

      $(function() {
        $("#From").datepicker();
        $("#format").change(function() { $('#From').datepicker('option', {dateFormat: $(this).val()}); });
            $("#To").datepicker();
        $("#format").change(function() { $('#To').datepicker('option', {dateFormat: $(this).val()}); });
      });

Without seeing all the code, it's hard to give you an exact answer and a code sample, but I can tell you the "best practices" way of dealing with date format conversions.

Use the functions strtotime() and date() to get this done.

http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

An example:
$iso_date = date('Y-m-d', strtotime('March 31, 2007'));

Have you tried this:

$("#From").datepicker({ dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd' });
