Getting Started

jqxDateTimeInput represents a jQuery datetimeinput widget that enables the user to select a date or time using a popup calendar display or by keyboard input into the text field.
Every UI widget from jQWidgets toolkit needs its JavaScript files to be included in order to work properly.

The first step is to create html page and add links to the javascript files and css dependencies to your project. The jqxDateTimeInput widget requires the following files:

The next step is to create html element within the body of the html document.

The last step is to initialize the widget by adding the following script to the html document:

To call a function(method), you need to pass the method name and parameters(if any) in the jqxDateTimeInput’s constructor.
$("#jqxdatetimeinput").jqxDateTimeInput(‘setDate’, new Date(2010, 1, 1));
To get the result of a function after calling it, you can use the following syntax:
var selectedDate = $("#jqxdatetimeinput'").jqxDateTimeInput(‘getDate’);
To set a property(option), you need to pass the property name and value(s) in the jqxDateTimeInput's constructor.
$("#jqxdatetimeinput").jqxDateTimeInput({ formatString: "dd/MM/yyyy" });
To get a property(option), you need to pass the property name to the jqxDateTimeInput's constructor.
var formatstring = $("#jqxdatetimeinput").jqxDateTimeInput('formatString');
To bind to an event of a UI widget, you can use basic jQuery syntax. Let’s suppose that you want to get the selected date after the user clicks on a calendar cell or enters it manually with the keyboard. The example code below demonstrates how to bind to the ‘change’ event of jqxDateTimeInput.
$('#jqxDateTimeInput').on('change', function (event) {
        var date =;

Basic Sample

The result of the above code is:
