limit period of time in date field

4 years 8 months ago #81529 by MPIDR
I have a survey with a date field and would like to limit the period of time that can be chosen. Can this be done?

In the advanced settings, only the minimum and maximum year can be set. However, I'd like to limit the selection to something like August 13th until August 25th.

as far as I know is the datepicker of the datefiled jquery ui. In order to that I would try to set a limit with jquery:

More specifically...

1) Set up your survey to use JavaScript .

2) Add the following script to the source of the date question. Replace "QQ" with the date question ID .

The script resets the max and min date options of the datepicker.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function () {
		$('#questionQQ .popupdate').datepicker( 'option', 'minDate', new Date(2012, 8 - 1, 13) );
		$('#questionQQ .popupdate').datepicker( 'option', 'maxDate', new Date(2012, 8 - 1, 25) );
