Hello,

Is it possible to make the datepicker post back to the same page when a date is
selected? If so please advise... Thank in advance for your help!!!


<script type="text/javascript">

                      $(function(){
 

                              // Datepicker

                              $('#datepicker').datepicker({

                                      inline: true,

                                      minDate: -0,

                                      maxDate: '1D +6M'

                              });
 

                      });

</script>

The datepicker onSelect event will let you do whatever you want when a date is selected.  What are you looking to do with your post back?

<script type="text/javascript">

$(function(){

  // Datepicker

  $('#datepicker').datepicker({

    inline: true,

    minDate: -0,

    maxDate: '1D +6M',

    onSelect: function(dateText) {

      // do whatever here

    }

  });

});

</script>

Thanks for your response Anoyes, it worked like a charm! Here is my update code, now my question is this the proper syntax?

<script type="text/javascript">

$(function(){

// Datepicker

   $('#datepicker').datepicker({

	inline: true,

	minDate: -0, 

	maxDate: '1D +6M',

	onSelect: function(dateText) {

      	// do whatever here    

	window.location = "selected.cfm?bookDate=" + dateText;

	}

});		

});				

</script>
