Using the Datepicker Widget
This chapter focuses on the jQuery UI datepicker widget, which provides a convenient visual mechanism for helping users select dates. Getting date information from users as text is notoriously problematic because of the wide range of formats in which dates can be expressed. The datepicker widget can make it easier for the user to select a date and provide the information to you in a way that is more consistent and less prone to errors. Table 21-1 provides the summary for this chapter.
