Consider me a novice so i need more details for understanding.

Thanks for your time.

It's already done for you: https://eonasdan.github.io/bootstrap-datetimepicker/

What functionality are you after? Bootstrap is about layout, not necessarily these types of controls.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your reply. I just started using these technologies in asp.net. I need to learn while doing them. I need to display a date control in one of my forms. I can also use jquery UI. Can you help me with some code?

I looked in to the link. I cannot download any code. All i am allowed to use is jquery Ui and bootstrap 3.1.1 libraries i guess. I should also have a today button in the control to enter today's date.

Then jQuery datepicker it is :) https://jqueryui.com/datepicker/

What exactly do you what to use bootstrap for?  just laying out your forms/page?  Or do you want to completely style the  datepicker somehow with it (which i wouldn't recommend unless you had a good reason to)?

There's both a demo and sample code on that link i posted

yes bootstrap for layout only. i thought i need to build date picker with it. after some study in the past couple of days things are little clearer. I need to display calendar icon for the calendar. when clicked on that i need to display the calendar. so i need to use the glyphicon here i guess. thanks for your reply. i will work on this and get back for any qtns.

Any idea how to get the today button?
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
The glyphicon is already included with jQuery ui and is added when you initialize the textbox as a calendar.
I'm here if you've got any questions on either
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
As for the today button, look at the options for the date picker. I'm sure it's got the option for a today button. If not, then you control it with JavaScript. Look at the methods for the date picker and you'll see how you can set the date
