   dateForm.push('<div class="form-group">'
                          ,'<label class="control-label col-xs-4" for="edit-deal-date">Estimated closing date</label>' 
                          ,'<div id = "find-bind" class="col-xs-8">'

which datepicker are you using, as there are different version..
Are you using this one?

When you said it's not working could you elaborate what is not working exactly, do you see the date picker?

Sometimes you may need to adjust the z-index css as the datepicker may appear under the modal...

Using Chrome, Right click / inspect your page to see if there any errors in console, let the console open and do some action to see if an error will occurred

If you can set a codepen or jsfiddle example that will help

when i click on the input the date picker does not show, and yes that is the date picker i am using.

and i can confirm the class for datepicker isnt showing,

it hard to put on jsfiddle but what it is i have a boot strap modal and i am using js to append the modal body with a input box with the datepicker class

You need to call the initialization code of the `datepicker` after appending the HTML code to the modal, so make sure the order of your script is like :



$("#EXPECTED_CLOSE_DATE").datepicker({dateFormat:"yy-mm-dd", minDate: new Date()});

We need to see the final markup - the page HTML.

Also - check your console for errors. Chances are there is a JavaScript error that is preventing the code from running.
