Hi,

I'm just wondering why jQuery's UI datepicker returns extra zeros (3 to be exact) at the end of their unix timestamp:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>jQuery UI Datepicker - Dates in other months</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
    <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
    <script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/jquery-ui.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css">
    <script>
        $(function() {
            $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({
                showOtherMonths: true,
                selectOtherMonths: false,
                altField: "#alternate",
                altFormat: "@"
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
<body>

<p>Date: <input type="text" id="datepicker"></p>
<p>Date: <input type="text" id="alternate"></p>


</body>
</html>

Open in new window


http://api.jqueryui.com/datepicker/#utility-formatDate

Is there something I'm missing?

thank you and God bless<><

JS getTime is in milliseconds. Unix timestamp is in seconds

Try dateFormat instead of altFormat

replace
altFormat: "@"
by
dateFormat: "@"

or
dateFormat: '@'
