The "Datepicker Widget" Lesson is part of the full, jQuery Plugins and jQuery UI course featured in this preview video. Here's what you'd learn in this lesson:

The “datepicker” widget can be tied to inputs or show-up inline. Use “minDate” and “maxDate” options to restrict “datepicker” from any date prior to- or after- the current date. “Datepicker” contains internationalization support, using the “dateFormat” option to accommodate different locales and cultures. Anecdotal commentary on this widget: Marc, who originally wrote the “datepicker”, shares a bit its implementation story and Scott adds some of his own experience with the API design of jQuery UI and dealing with hundreds of feature requests and different usecases. In the end, don’t try to solve everyone’s problems!
