This example demonstrate how to use jQuery UI Datepicker popup Calender with asp.net. Microsoft jQuery UI libaray is also avaible on CDN hosted. I have used input type textbox, added Microsoft CDN jQueryUI 1.8.16 libarary and CDN CSS Style sheet file for the jQuery datepicker. You can download jQuery UI 1.8.16 libarary from here. You can download entire libarary from http://jqueryui.com/download. Microsoft CDN is also avaible on HTTPS. Let’s start.

 

Note: I have used Microsoft Visual Studio 2011 Developer Preview.

 

Step 1: Open your Microsoft Visual Studio 2011 Developer Preview, click File -> New Web Site. Choose ASP.NET web site from the installed template. I have chosen .NET Framework 4.5; you can choose Framework from dropdownlist as shown in below figure.

Step 2: Right click on your web site, click on Add New Item, Add New Item window will open, select Web Form, give name jQueryUI-Calendar.aspx  and press Add button as shown.

 

Step 3:  Add Microsoft jQuery 1.7 libraries, jQuery UI 1.8.16 libarary and CSS style sheet file under the head section of your aspx page as shown below.
 

    <script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-1.7.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.ui/1.8.16/jquery-ui.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <link href="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.ui/1.8.16/themes/humanity/jquery-ui.css"

        rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

Note: jQuery all themes are avaible on Microsoft, google and jquery CDN hosted.

Step 4:  Drag and drop input textbox in your aspx as shown below and it will generate the id named "Text1" in your page.

Step 5:  Copy and paste following code under the head section as given below.
 

    <script type="text/javascript">

        $(function(){

            $("[id$=Text1]").datepicker();

        });

</script>

Run your web site and click on the input textbox, you will see the Datepicker to select the date.



You can display month and year dropdown list in jQuery datepicker by passing changeMonth and changeYear boolen parameter as shown below code.



 <script type="text/javascript">

        $(function(){

            $("[id$=Text1]").datepicker({

                changeMonth:true,

                changeYear:true

            });

        });

</script>
 

You can restrict the date range as given in following code.

<script type="text/javascript">

        $(function(){

            $("[id$=Text1]").datepicker({

                minDate:-15,

                maxDate:+ 3

            });

        });

</script>


In the above code, you can select min 15 days and max 3 days from current date as shown in below figure.



For more options of datepicker to view, click here.


Note:  Microsoft CDN has been changed from ajax.microsoft.com to ajax.aspnetcdn.com to increase the performace. However, old name ajax.microsoft.com domain will remain same. But ajax.microsoft.com is not recommended.
