    JQuery datepicker question with Cold Fusion

    userCold9 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      Noticed that there is JQuery modules in the directories with Cold Fusion 11.

       

      In the URL "http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15756532/use-jquery-datepicker"  shows using JQuery local for the date picker on the server. But it show a module datepicker.css.

       

      I cannot find the module.

       

      Does JQuery need to be downloaded in order to obtain all the modules for the datepicker?

       

       

       

      Thanks,

       

      Mike

          What directories do you mean?

           

          Jquery is completely separate from CF, you will always need to include it manually if you want to use it on your page.

           

          The date picker you are talking about will be a third party one that is based on jQuery. jQuery does have a normal date picker that is used in jQuery-UI package but again this needs to be manually included on your pages.

            Hi,

             

            The directory is: ColdFusion11\cfusion\wwwroot\CFIDE\scripts\ajax

             

             

             

             

            Thanks,

              This will be in there for CFs own internal javascript usage. This isn't for use on your pages. Some coldfusion ui elements will use certain javascript libraries, some of these probably require jquery. CFCalendar probably uses the date picker element from jquery, but will automatically use these files without you having to add them.

               

              If you want to use date pickers, either use CFCalendar (Which i would not recommend, stay away from CF UI tools) or find the documentation for using jquery-ui and using the datepicker there.
