Nice Scrollable Date Selector Plugin With jQuery - DateSelect

Just another jQuery plugin used for creating a nice, scrollable date picker where you can quickly and easily select days, months and years using mouse wheel or increment / decrement buttons.

How to use it:

1. The plugin requires jQuery library and the jQuery mousewheel plugin loaded correctly in the html page.

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

2. Load the jQuery DateSelect plugin's JS and CSS files after jQuery.

<link href="jquery.dateselect.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="jquery.dateselect.js"></script>

3. Adding the data-select="date" attribute to the target input field will automatically initialize the date picker without any JS call.

<link href="jquery.dateselect.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="jquery.dateselect.js"></script>

4. You can also specify a toggle element using the data-toggle="select" attribute like this:

<button type="button" data-toggle="select">Click me</button>

5. Default plugin options. Initialize the date picker manually and pass the following options to the dateSelect function as follows:

$('.trigger-element').on('click', function(e) {
    formatDate: function(date) {
      var formatted = $.dateSelect.pad(date.getDate(), 2) + '/' + $.dateSelect.pad(date.getMonth() + 1, 2) + '/' + date.getFullYear();
      return formatted;
    parseDate: function(string) {
      var date = new Date();
      var parts = string.match(/(\d{1,2})\/(\d{1,2})\/(\d{4})/);
      if (parts && parts.length == 4) {
        date = new Date(parts[3], parts[2] - 1, parts[1]);
      return date;
    container: 'body',
    element: null, // target input element
    date: new Date().toDateString(),
    strings: {
      days: ['Sunday', 'Monday', 'Tuesday', 'Wednesday', 'Thursday', 'Friday', 'Saturday'],
      months: ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December']
