can anyone tell me why datepicker submits the current date if the input field is empty? this date field is not a compulsory field and can be used at the users discretion. many thanks.

I've never experienced this. Are you sure that the page itself is submitting the current date?

Is your server side PHP? If you use code like: date('Y/m/d', strtotime($_POST['date'])) and $_POST['date'] is blank, I believe strtotime will calculate the current date at the server...

thanks for reply. this is the php code:

$date_parts = explode("/",$_POST['datepicker']);
$newDate = $date_parts[2]  . "-" . $date_parts[1] . "-" . $date_parts[0];
$datepicker = date('Y/m/d', strtotime($newDate));
