  • Special date from PHP, MySQL Date #72774


    Hi, I use this method to mark the special dates with Ajax, but the special dates shows me one day earlier.

    My HTML:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css" type="text/css" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../scripts/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxcore.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxdatetimeinput.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxcalendar.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxbuttons.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxtooltip.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/globalization/globalize.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
       $(document).ready(function () {
          $("#jqxWidget").jqxCalendar({ enableTooltips: true, width: 220, height: 220});
             dataType: 'json', 
             async: false, 
             cache: false, 
             url: 'dates.php',
             success: function (json){
               for (var i = 0; i < json.length; i++) {
                  var dates = json[i].dates;
                  var sliced = dates.slice(0, 10);
                  var d = new Date(sliced);
                  $("#jqxWidget").jqxCalendar('addSpecialDate', d, '', 'Special Date' + i);
            error: function (xhr) {
               $("#jqxWidget").html("Error "+ xhr.status + " " + xhr.statusText);
        <div id='jqxWidget'></div>

    My JSON Data from PHP:

    [{"dates":"2015-06-01 00:00:00"},{"dates":"2015-06-08 00:00:00"}]

    Special dates are shown in the widget as follows: 2015/05/31 and 2015/06/07. Not like my JSON sample.

    Any idea, what I’m doing wrong?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Hi jcaballero,

    This issue occurs because of time zone hour differences. If you change your for loop like this:

    for (var i = 0; i < json.length; i++) {
        var dates = json[i].dates;
        var year = parseInt(dates.slice(0, 4));
        var month = parseInt(dates.slice(5, 7)) - 1;
        var day = parseInt(dates.slice(8, 10));
        var d = new Date(year, month, day, 0, 0, 0);
        $("#jqxWidget").jqxCalendar('addSpecialDate', d, '', 'Special Date' + i);

    the special dates should be shown correctly.

    Best Regards,
