How to add datepicker in jquery

The datepicker is tied to a standard form input field. Focus on the input (click, or use the tab key) to open an interactive calendar in a small overlay.

Step 1. Make a HTML file and add one textbox with id=”datepicker”

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>How to add datepicker in jquery</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>How to add datepicker in jquery</h1>
Date <input type="text" name="datepicker" id="datepicker" placeholder="Date">
</body>
</html> 

Step 2: After that you need to add below css and js files inside <head> tag.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.8.24/themes/base/jquery-ui.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.js"></script>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.8.24/jquery-ui.js"></script>

Step 3: Finally add below code to call datepicker

<script type="text/javascript">
$("#datepicker").live('click',function() {
     $(this).datepicker({
          dateFormat: "yy-mm-dd",
        changeMonth: true,
        changeYear: true
        }).datepicker( "show" );
    });
</script>

Finally your datepicker is ready. If you want to see live output then click on below link.
