Hi, this form send the date to alert and works fine. I will send data to a php page and put the value(date) in a variable like : $variable="date_value"
<form>
    <script>DateInput('orderdate', true, 'DD-MON-YYYY')</script>
    <input type="button" onclick="alert(this.form.orderdate.value)" value=" Send date " />
</form>

you can use the jquery to pass to hidden variable and then use that value to submit the value....

Please refer the example

<script>
odate  = DateInput('orderdate', true, 'DD-MON-YYYY');
$(document).ready(function(){
  $("#orderdate").html(odate);
});
<script>

<form action="somepage.php"  method="post">
    <input type="hidden" id="orderdate" name="odate" value=""/>
    <input type="button" onclick="alert(this.form.orderdate.value)" value=" Send date " />
</form>


// some php page...somepage.php

<?php

echo $_POST['odate'];

?>

Thanks all for replyes.
I've done that below as kalmax have said but nothing happens.
( I am using separate js file and have this: <head><script type="text/javascript" src="calendarDateInput.js"></script></head>

<form action="page.php"  method="post" target="main">
    <script>DateInput('orderdate', true, 'DD-MON-YYYY')</script>
    <input type="hidden" id="orderdate" name="odate" value=""/>
    <input type="button"  value="  Send date " />
 </form>

you would need to include

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

that will work with jquery and provide the value to hidden field...

@sam20: i dont think it should make any difference. Just submit the hidden date field to server, and php can then read that posted data

You are right gruvinder, I got the value in this way:
<form action="page.php"  method="get" >
    <script>DateInput('orderdate', true, 'DD-MON-YYYY')</script>
    <input type="hidden" id="(this.form.orderdate.value)" name="odate" value=""/>
    <input type="submit"  value="  Send date " />
 </form>
And the page.php
<?php
echo $_GET['orderdate'];
?>

Thanks everybody
