Looking for a 3rd Party jquery/html "Date Spinner" or "Date Slider" control

Hi:

I'm looking for a decent looking 3rd party html/jquery "Date Spinner" or "Date Slider" control.
I've attached a file containing an image which illustrates what I'm looking for.
I'd preferably like to find a 3rd party control that's already stylized, so I don't have to spend cycles doing it myself (impending demo).

Thanks,
JohnB

Have you seen jQuery Ui date picker?
http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/

Requires no styling, just have to include one of their themes

If you just use html5 <input type="date" name="dateChosen"> you will get that effect and if used on a mobile device, it will use the native date chooser like android or ios.

Hi padas:

I tried loading this in Chrome and I'm pretty much seeing the standard date control.
We're building with chrome was the target browser (No IE or moble device).
I'm not seeing the desired effect (from my screen shots).

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
JB

Hey tagit:

I'm looking around at themes for datepicker and so far I don't see anything that comes close to matching one of our desired effects.

Thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks,
JohnB

You don't really need to theme it much, my bad for thinking you wanted the calendar popup. http://jsbin.com/UXObAjU/2/edit shows the spinner and the calendar popup if you want it (otherwise just disable the input control).

I know you're after a third party tool for this but hopefully you can see how easy it would be to package it up yourself.

You would just replace the >> << text with images of your choosing.

What do you think?

This is from chrome when I click on the control.  Without clicking the pop out calendar is not shown.  Otherwise, this looks just like your sample.
