Introduction

The datepicker widget augments the typical text input form element by presenting the user with a date selection utility. We see these types of inputs everywhere on the Web now. The graphical nature of the datepicker is intuitive for most users because it closely resembles a physical calendar. The datepicker widget also addresses the challenge of working with consistent date formats, something users don't have to worry about.
