Hello experts,

I am using this jquery datepicker.

http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Datepicker

and I need to grab the a single selected date in my ASP code. How do I do this? It's probably something simple that I just can't find.

<%response.Write "DatePicker: "&request.Form("#datepicker")&"<br>" %>

Open in new window

Thanks

use an hidden field to store the value for you :

<div id="datepicker"></div>
<input type="hidden" id="datepicker_value" name="datepicker" />


$('.selector').datepicker({
   onSelect: function(dateText, inst) { $("#datepicker_value").val( dateText ); }
});

check the onSelect event definition on this page : http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Datepicker#events

Test page (the hidden field is replace by a textbox to let you see the value) : http://jsfiddle.net/qJ3yg/1/
