Most Features Javascript Calendar and Date Picker

Posted · Category: Calendar, Design, LGPL License

Dynarch DatePickerWhen we are developing web services or web applications, we need users to input dates sometimes. We would like users input dates in a certain format so the data can be manipulate easily. If we ask users to input dates in certain format manually, it will be very clumsy. Therefore, a good date picker or calendar is needed. Users can click on the calendar icon, a calendar will pop up and let the user choose the date. The date will be input into a specific text field after choosing a certain date from the calendar.

We are now introducing you the best javascript calendar and date picker we have seen so far. Dynarch.com has developed an open source javascript calendar with the following extra features as well.

  • Provides help hints (also configurable)
  • Includes an optional time selector with 1 minute resolution
  • Special days (configurable list of days that are displayed differently)
  • Allows multiple days selection

  • Yes it has a lot of features but does that make it the “best”?

    To me it seems like overkill. There’s information there that most people simply don’t need to make a decision and those that do need it are already used to grabbing out their PDA or over-the-top application they already have. But for the mass majority of users, it’s simply too much functionality and is just confusing and noisy.

    I think a better term would be “most features in a javascript calendar”.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have changed the title from “Best Javascript Calendar and Date Picker” to “Most Features Javascript Calendar and Date Picker”. WebAppers will publish some simple and nice open source calendar for you guys. Stay tune. :)
