Just when you thought that datepickers had been played out, along comes Filament Group and puts a whole new spin on it. Working from Mark Grabanski’s jQuery UI DatePicker control, the team substantially enhanced the UI with a host of new features including:
- shortcut links to preset date ranges, for example, “Past 30 days” or “Current YTD,”
- links to “All dates before…” and “All dates after…” to simplify selecting a range of values where the data set is very large or the high or low end value is an unknown, and
- only showing the number of calendars needed for choosing a particular range (i.e., you only need one calendar to choose “All dates before…”, but you’ll need two to select a custom range).
- Use of progressive enhancement for graceful degradation /li>
Check out the demo here.
