jQuery UI datepicker not showing


I've tried using jQuery UI for the first time by creating a datepicker for a date field.  The datepicker didn't show up on my website and I've tried a simple webpage containing one text box and it still doesn't show.

After downloading and unzipping the jQuery UI folder from I uploaded the whole folder onto my website and pointed to each file's location as instructed (see code).  I am therefore wondering if I need to upload other jQuery files in order to run JQuery UI?

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for the code, that worked great.

I now need to embed this into the PHP page I've developed and assume that it is a simple case of embedding lines 12 - 24 into existing Javascript tags used for rollovers whilst ensuring that the page's relevant field name is still "ClosingDate"?

Many thanks for your resolution to my issue.

Code copied worked fine when tested.
