Combo Box Date & Time Picker Plugin With jQuery - Combodate

Combodate is a jQuery and Moment.js based date & time picker plugin which lets you select date and time using combo dropdown boxes.

How to use it:

1. Load the needed JavaScript libraries (jQuery and Moment.js) in your html page.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/moment.min.js"></script>

2. Download and load the JavaScript file combodate.js after jQuery library.

<script src="src/combodate.js"></script>

3. Call the function to convert a specified input field into a datetime picker with default options.


4. Available settings to customize the date & time picker.

  // date time format
  format: 'DD-MM-YYYY HH:mm',

  // default template
  template: 'D / MMM / YYYY   H : mm',

  //initial value, can be new Date()
  value: null,

  // min year
  minYear: 1970,

  // max year
  maxYear: 2015,

  // years order.
  yearDescending: true,

  // step of values in minutes dropdown.
  minuteStep: 5,

  // step of values in seconds dropdown.
  secondStep: 1,

  //'name', 'empty', 'none'
  firstItem: 'empty', 

  // CSS class applied if date is incorrect
  errorClass: null,

  // CSS class applied to each dropdow
  customClass: '',

  // whether to round minutes and seconds if step > 1
  roundTime: true, 

  // whether days in combo depend on selected month: 31, 30, 28
  smartDays: false 


5. You can also pass the options via HTML5 data attributes on the input fields like this:

<input type="text" id="date" 
       data-template="D MMM YYYY" 
       name="date" value="09-01-2013"

6. API methods.

// Returns current value. 
// If format is omitted, options.format is used. 
// If format is null, returned value is Momentjs object.
$(element).combodate('getValue', format)

// Sets new value. 
// Value can be javascript Date() object or string in options.format.
$(element).combodate('setValue', value)
