jquery date picker disable past dates


jquery date picker disable past dates  using -'jquery,jquery-ui,datepicker,uidatepicker,jquery-ui-datepicker'

I am trying to have a date Range select using the UI date picker.

in the from/to field people should not be able to view or select dates previous to the present day.

This is my code:

$(function() {
    var dates = $( "#from, #to" ).datepicker({
        defaultDate: "+1w",
        changeMonth: true,
        numberOfMonths: 1,
        onSelect: function( selectedDate ) {
            var option = this.id == "from" ? "minDate" : "maxDate",
                instance = $( this ).data( "datepicker" ),
                date = $.datepicker.parseDate(
                    instance.settings.dateFormat ||
                    $.datepicker._defaults.dateFormat,
                    selectedDate, instance.settings );
            dates.not( this ).datepicker( "option", option, date );
        }
    });
});


Can some one tell me how to disable dates previous the to the present date.

You must create a new date object and set it as minDate when you initialize the datepickers

   

var dateToday = new Date();
var dates = $("#from, #to").datepicker({
    defaultDate: "+1w",
    changeMonth: true,
    numberOfMonths: 3,
    minDate: dateToday,
    onSelect: function(selectedDate) {
        var option = this.id == "from" ? "minDate" : "maxDate",
            instance = $(this).data("datepicker"),
            date = $.datepicker.parseDate(instance.settings.dateFormat || $.datepicker._defaults.dateFormat, selectedDate, instance.settings);
        dates.not(this).datepicker("option", option, date);
    }
});

Edit - from your comment now it works as expected http://jsfiddle.net/nicolapeluchetti/dAyzq/1/

Just to add to this:

If you also need to prevent the user to manually type a date in the past, this is a possible solution. This is what we ended up doing (based on @Nicola Peluchetti's answer)

var dateToday = new Date();

$("#myDatePickerInput").change(function () {
    var updatedDate = $(this).val();
    var instance = $(this).data("datepicker");
    var date = $.datepicker.parseDate(instance.settings.dateFormat || $.datepicker._defaults.dateFormat, updatedDate, instance.settings);

    if (date < dateToday) {
        $(this).datepicker("setDate", dateToday);
    }
});

What this does is to change the value to today's date if the user manually types a date in the past.

Declare dateToday variable and use Date() function to set it.. then use that variable to assign to minDate which is parameter of datepicker.

var dateToday = new Date(); 
$(function() {
    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({
        numberOfMonths: 3,
        showButtonPanel: true,
        minDate: dateToday
    });
});

That's it... Above answer was really helpful... keep it up guys..

jQuery API documentation - datepicker

The minimum selectable date. When set to null, there is no minimum.

Multiple types supported:

Date: A date object containing the minimum date.
Number: A number of days from today. For example 2 represents two days from today and -1 represents yesterday.
String: A string in the format defined by the dateFormat option, or a relative date.
Relative dates must contain value and period pairs; valid periods are y for years, m for months, w for weeks, and d for days. For example, +1m +7d represents one month and seven days from today.

In order not to display previous dates other than today

$('#datepicker').datepicker({minDate: 0});

}).on('changeDate', function(ev){

you have to declare current date into variables like this

 $(function() {
    var date = new Date();
    var currentMonth = date.getMonth();
    var currentDate = date.getDate();
    var currentYear = date.getFullYear();
    $('#datepicker').datepicker({
    minDate: new Date(currentYear, currentMonth, currentDate)
    });
})

"mindate" attribute should be used to disable passed dates in jquery datepicker.

minDate: new Date() Or minDate: '0' is the key for this.

Ex:

$(function() {
    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({minDate: new Date()});
});

OR

$(function() {
  $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({minDate: 0});
});
