I have a static web site on iis 7 on local machine.  I have downoaded and added jquery and jquery ui.  I have added the following to my index page:

    <link href='css/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui-1.10.3.custom.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />
    <link href='css/demos.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />

      <link href='css/wdgt.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />

    <script src='js/jquery-1.9.1.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
    <script src='js/ui/jquery.ui.core.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
    <script src='js/ui/jquery.ui.widget.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
    <script src='js/ui/jquery.ui.datepicker.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

obviously, I'm trying to use the datepicker.

I also have this in the head section:
    <script type='text/javascript'>
        $(document).ready(function() {
                        alert('ready');
                $('#TourDate').datepicker({
                    onSelect: function (dateText, inst) { checkDay(dateText); }
                });

            }

        });

        function checkDay(dateText)
        {
                  alert('here');

        }

    </script>

nothing here works.  it appears that the first document.ready() is never called.  all pathing has been checked several times.  it doesn't work in IE 10 or chrome.  i'm totally stumped here and need help to show me the error of my ways!!

BTW, I can't ref the jquery stuff at google or any other external site.  It's not an option.

Try this...

     
   $(document).ready(function() {
                        alert('ready');
                $('#TourDate').datepicker({
                    onSelect: function (dateText, inst) { checkDay(dateText); }
                });

          

        

        function checkDay(dateText)
        {
                  alert('here');

        }
});
