Hello Experts

I have a html form that uses a Java script. line 7 to13

Once a user selects Absent Teacher on line 75 it populates that selection on 8 other Absent Teachers input forms.
 I need the Java Script edited to also duplicate line 74 so the date is also populated on 8 other Date input forms.

from your description, I would guess that this may do what you want, however, I would think you need to place a "DATE" in the first datepicker as a default from the PHP database? ? It is blank (as NO TEXT) the way you have it now.

function syncSelects(objSel) {
// get the text from the first datepicker text element in variable  val1
var val1 = objSel.form.elements['datepicker[1]'].value;

	for(var i=2; i<=9; ++i) {
		objSel.form.elements['sickteacher['+i+']'].selectedIndex = objSel.selectedIndex;
// assign the val1 variable to the 8 other text elements  value
		objSel.form.elements['datepicker['+i+']'].value = val1;
	}
}

Also you have the datepicker with 9 duplicate ID, as a technical thing, you should never have duplicate ID (NEVER , EVER).
ask questions if you need more info

OK, you already do this "numbering" time and time again with this PHP loop read -
     <?php echo $i ?>

so you can just change it to
Date: <input type="text" id="datepicker<?php echo $i ?>" name="datepicker[<?php echo $i ?>]"><br>

HOWEVER, with that change, your initialization of the Jquery "datepicker" widget will be different, currently you have this -

$(function() {
    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker();
  });

this uses the Jquery ID selector as "#datepicker", but now you have 9 different text box ID's. so you might try a loop like this -
$(function() {
  for(var i=1; i<10; ++i) {
    $( "#datepicker"+i ).datepicker();
    }
  });

just my opinion here, the several many "pop-up" datepickers now available in JS-CSS, can be a time comsuming effort to go through many years and mounts and days to get a certain date, that can be typed easily in seconds. That's why I urge you to have a date already in that text. although you may have configured the datepicker to already have the current date in there?
