DateTime Picker

Bootstrap form component to handle date and time data.

Fork me on GitHub
This project is a fork of bootstrap-datetimepicker project which doesn't include Time part.
Some others parts has been improved as for example the load process which now accepts the ISO-8601 format.
I've copy/pasted the forked project's documentation and added my specifications.
 
Don't hesitate to download and try it !
Clone or fork this project as you wish
git clone git://github.com/smalot/bootstrap-datetimepicker.git

I hope this will help you !

Requires bootstrap's dropdown component (dropdowns.less) for some styles, and bootstrap's sprites (sprites.less and associated images) for arrows.

A standalone .css file (including necessary dropdown styles and alternative, text-based arrows) can be generated by running build/build_standalone.less through the lessc compiler:

$ lessc build/build_standalone.less datetimepicker.css

All options that take a "Date" can handle a Date object; a String formatted according to the given format; or a timedelta relative to today, eg '-1d', '+6m +1y', etc, where valid units are 'd' (day), 'w' (week), 'm' (month), and 'y' (year).

You can also specify an ISO-8601 valid datetime, despite of the given format :

  • yyyy-mm-dd
  • yyyy-mm-dd hh:ii
  • yyyy-mm-ddThh:ii
  • yyyy-mm-dd hh:ii:ss
  • yyyy-mm-ddThh:ii:ssZ

format

String. Default: 'mm/dd/yyyy'

The date format, combination of p, P, h, hh, i, ii, s, ss, d, dd, m, mm, M, MM, yy, yyyy.

  • P : meridian in upper case ('AM' or 'PM') - according to locale file
  • s : seconds without leading zeros
  • ss : seconds, 2 digits with leading zeros
  • i : minutes without leading zeros
  • ii : minutes, 2 digits with leading zeros
  • h : hour without leading zeros - 24-hour format
  • hh : hour, 2 digits with leading zeros - 24-hour format
  • H : hour without leading zeros - 12-hour format
  • HH : hour, 2 digits with leading zeros - 12-hour format
  • d : day of the month without leading zeros
  • dd : day of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros
  • m : numeric representation of month without leading zeros
  • mm : numeric representation of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros
  • M : short textual representation of a month, three letters

autoclose

Boolean. Default: false

Whether or not to close the datetimepicker immediately when a date is selected.

startView

Number, String. Default: 2, 'month'

The view that the datetimepicker should show when it is opened. Accepts values of :

  • 0 or 'hour' for the hour view
  • 1 or 'day' for the day view
  • 2 or 'month' for month view (the default)
  • 3 or 'year' for the 12-month overview

Number, String. Default: 4, 'decade'

The highest view that the datetimepicker should show.

todayBtn

Boolean, "linked". Default: false

If true or "linked", displays a "Today" button at the bottom of the datetimepicker to select the current date. If true, the "Today" button will only move the current date into view; if "linked", the current date will also be selected.

todayHighlight

Boolean. Default: false

If true, highlights the current date.

keyboardNavigation

Boolean. Default: true

Whether or not to allow date navigation by arrow keys.

language

String. Default: 'en'

The two-letter code of the language to use for month and day names. These will also be used as the input's value (and subsequently sent to the server in the case of form submissions). Currently ships with English ('en'), German ('de'), Brazilian ('br'), and Spanish ('es') translations, but others can be added (see I18N below). If an unknown language code is given, English will be used.

forceParse

Boolean. Default: true

Whether or not to force parsing of the input value when the picker is closed. That is, when an invalid date is left in the input field by the user, the picker will forcibly parse that value, and set the input's value to the new, valid date, conforming to the given format.

The increment used to build the hour view. A preset is created for each minuteStep minutes.

pickerReferer : deprecated

The referer element to place the picker for the component implementation. If you want to place the picker just under the input field, just specify input.

pickerPosition

String. Default: 'bottom-right' (other value supported : 'bottom-left')

This option is currently only available in the component implementation. With it you can place the picker just under the input field.

viewSelect

Number or String. Default: same as minView (supported values are: 'decade', 'year', 'month', 'day', 'hour')

With this option you can select the view from which the date will be selected. By default it's the last one, however you can choose the first one, so at each click the date will be updated.

showMeridian

Boolean. Default: false

This option will enable meridian views for day and hour views.

initialDate

Date or String. Default: new Date()

You can initialize the viewer with a date. By default it's now, so you can specify yesterday or today at midnight ...

Datetimepicker class exposes a few events for manipulating the dates.

show

Fired when the date picker is displayed.

hide

Fired when the date picker is hidden.

changeDate

Fired when the date is changed.

$('#date-end')
.datetimepicker()
.on('changeDate', function(ev){
    if (ev.date.valueOf() < date-start-display.valueOf()){
        ....
    }
});
            

changeYear

Fired when the view year is changed from decade view.

changeMonth

Fired when the view month is changed from year view.

outOfRange

Fired when you pick a date before the startDate or after the endDate or when you specify a date via the method setDate or setUTCDate.

The datetimepicker includes some keyboard navigation:

up, down, left, right arrow keys

By themselves, left/right will move backward/forward one day, up/down will move back/forward one week.

With the shift key, up/left will move backward one month, down/right will move forward one month.

With the ctrl key, up/left will move backward one year, down/right will move forward one year.

Shift+ctrl behaves the same as ctrl - that is, it does not change both month and year simultaneously, only the year.

escape

The escape key can be used to hide and re-show the datetimepicker; this is necessary if the user wants to manually edit the value.

enter

When the picker is visible, enter will simply hide it. When the picker is not visible, enter will have normal effects - submitting the current form, etc.

The plugin supports i18n for the month and weekday names and the weekStart option. The default is English ('en'); other available translations are avilable in the js/locales/ directory, simply include your desired locale after the plugin. To add more languages, simply add a key to $.fn.datetimepicker.dates, before calling .datetimepicker(). Example:

$.fn.datetimepicker.dates['en'] = {
    days: ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday", "Sunday"],
    daysShort: ["Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", "Sat", "Sun"],
    daysMin: ["Su", "Mo", "Tu", "We", "Th", "Fr", "Sa", "Su"],
    months: ["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"],
    monthsShort: ["Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"],
    today: "Today"
};

Right-to-left languages may also include rtl: true to make the calendar display appropriately.

If your browser (or those of your users) is displaying characters wrong, chances are the browser is loading the javascript file with a non-unicode encoding. Simply add charset="UTF-8" to your script tag:

<script type="text/javascript" src="bootstrap-datetimepicker.de.js" charset="UTF-8"></script>

Attached to a field with the format specified via options:

<input type="text" value="2012-05-15 21:05" id="datetimepicker">
$('#datetimepicker').datetimepicker({
    format: 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:ii'
});

Attached to a field with the format specified via markup:

<input type="text" value="2012-05-15 21:05" id="datetimepicker" data-date-format="yyyy-mm-dd hh:ii">
$('#datetimepicker').datetimepicker();

As component:

<div class="input-append date" id="datetimepicker" data-date="12-02-2012" data-date-format="dd-mm-yyyy">
    <input size="16" type="text" value="12-02-2012" readonly>
    <span class="add-on"><i class="icon-th"></i></span>
</div>
$('#datetimepicker').datetimepicker();

As inline datetimepicker:

<div id="datetimepicker"></div>
$('#datetimepicker').datetimepicker();
