MVC3: My jQuery Date Picker's not passing the value to my Model

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have installed the jQuery Date Picker into my Razor file and associated it with my string property "DOB", which has a public getter and a public setter. But when I submit the page, the value being pased to the setter is null, even though I can see the text field has a valid date string.

Here is the definition:
[Display(Name = "Date of Birth")]
public string DOB { get { return dob; } set { dob = value;  } }

Any idea what could be wrong?
