Hello,

See following Jquery

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.2/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery/jquery.lightbox_me.js"></script>
      
<script>
            
                  $(document).ready(function() {
                  
                        $('#button').click(function(e) {
                              $('#as_built').lightbox_me({
                                    closeClick:      true,      
                              });
                              e.preventDefault();
                        });                        

                  });
$(function() {
    $( "#adddate" ).datepicker();
    $( "#datecompl" ).datepicker();
      $("#cleardc").on('click',function () {
            $.datepicker._clearDate("#datecompl");
      });      
      $("#clearal").on('click',function () {
            $.datepicker._clearDate("#adddate");
      });      
});
</script>

This html:

<tr>
            <td align="right">Date Completed:&nbsp;</td>
            <td><input name="datecompl" id="datecompl" type="text" class="pt12" size="12" readonly="readonly">&nbsp;<button id="cleardc">Clear date</button></td>
      </tr>

When the Clear Date button is clicked, it clears the date but submits the form.

Why does it submit the form? Is the button element considered a submit element?

You'll need to prevent the default behaviour of the button. You can do this with the preventDefault() method of the function's argument - e in the example below:

$("#cleardc").on('click',function (e) {
   e.preventDefault();
   $.datepicker._clearDate("#datecompl");
});
