JQuery dropdownlist selection for month/year in calender using

Apr 25, 2012

In this article I will explain how to implement JQuery calendar control with dropdownlist selection for month and year example in
In previous post I explained JQuery datepicker calendar control example in Now I will explain how to use dropdownlist selection for month and year in JQuery calendar control using

If we use Ajax calendar control we don’t have a chance to display these type custom options and need to write some custom css classes to change ajax calendar control style other Ajax calendar will be like this

Instead of making all these changes its better to use JQuery UI calendar control to customize based on our requirements. If we want to use dropdownlist selection for month and year selection in JQuery calendar control no need to make many change just by set some basic properties we can achieve this functionality and we can set number years we can display in year dropdown.

To implement this one first open Visual Studio and create new website after that write following code in your aspx page

<html xmlns="">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery UI Datepicker - Default functionality</title>
<link type="text/css" href="css/ui-lightness/jquery-ui-1.8.19.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.7.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-ui-1.8.19.custom.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
changeMonth: true,
changeYear: true,
yearRange: '1970:2012'
<style type="text/css">
.ui-datepicker { font-size:8pt !important}
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div class="demo">
<b>Date:</b> <asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server"/>
If you observe above code in header section I added some of script files and css classes by using those files we will display calendar control with beautiful css style. You can get those files by downloading attached sample.

After completion of aspx page design and your code modifications just run your application and check your calendar control that would be like below demo
