An awesome jQuery & Bootstrap powered date picker plugin which allows to select a date range from two auto-tabbing date inputs.

How to use it:

1. Include the required Bootstrap's stylesheet and the jQuery Aeud Datepicker's CSS in the head section of the document.

<link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<link href="css/datepicker.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Include jQuery library and the jQuery Aeud Datepicker's script at the bottom so the pages load faster.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/datepicker.js"></script>

3. Create the start & end date input fields for the date range picker.

<div class="form-group"> <span class="form-control" id="fromDisplay" name="from">Start date</span>
  <input type="hidden" name="from" value="" id="fromInput">
  <div class="vf-datepicker" id="startDP"></div>
</div>

<div class="form-group"> <span class="form-control" id="toDisplay">End date</span>
  <input type="hidden" name="to" value="" id="toInput">
  <div class="vf-datepicker" id="endDP"></div>
</div>

4. The Javascript to active & customize the date range picker.

var now = new Date();
var ny = now.getFullYear();
var nm = now.getMonth();

VF_datepicker.datepicker(ny, nm, {
  'monthNames': ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'],
  'dayNames': ['Su', 'Mo', 'Tu', 'We', 'Th', 'Fr', 'Sa'],
  'from_chosen': function(from){
    $('.inputFrom').val(from);
  },
  'to_chosen': function(from, to){
    VF_datepicker.close();
    $('.inputFrom').val(from);
    $('.inputTo').val(to);
  },
  'startCtrl': $('#fromDisplay'),
  'endCtrl': $('#toDisplay'),
  'startDisplay': $('#fromDisplay'),
  'endDisplay': $('#toDisplay'),
  'startInput': $('#fromInput'),
  'endInput': $('#toInput'),
  'startDP': $('#startDP'),
  'endDP': $('#endDP'),
}, function(from, to){
  //alert([from, to]);
});

$('#inputFrom').focus(function(){
  VF_datepicker.show();
});

$('#inputTo').focus(function(){
  if (VF_datepicker.from) {
    VF_datepicker.show();  
  } else {
    VF_datepicker.show();
  }
  VF_datepicker.removeTo();
});
