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>
