Datepicker v3.4.3 $(element).datepicker('getDate') doesn't work properly

Reported by: insekticid Owned by: grabanski
Priority: major Milestone: 1.5
Component: ui.datepicker Version: 1.5b4
Keywords: datepicker Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When I enter any date into datepicker input and then I want to get this date with function $(element).datepicker('getDate') I always get "null".

I studied the code and I found this: date from input is parsed only when I opened datepicker!

So now I am using this ugly hack



parsed = $(element).datepicker('getDate');

Hello, here is my hotfix + I added new method for checking, if entered date is in allowed range

Changed May 09, 2008 02:32PM UTC by insekticid comment:4

new methods: isMaxDate, isMinDate

patch v2.0 is the same like patch v2

now It is possible to validate Datepicker dates with validate plugin

$.validator.methods.dateMin = function (value, element, param)


return $(element).datepicker('isMinDate');


$.validator.methods.dateMax = function (value, element, param)


return $(element).datepicker('isMaxDate');


$.validator.methods.dateRange = function (value, element, param)


return $(element).datepicker('isDateInRange');

Those three methods you have added are features. I will move them to a feature ticket.
