Setting TextBox.Text after Selecting a Date on an Ajax CalendarExtender


On an ASP.NET page, I have a pair of CalendarExtender (AJAX Control Toolkit for ASP.NET 4.0) controls on a page acting as a date range. What I want to do is, after the user has selected the value for TextCheckInDate , populate TextCheckOutDate with TextCheckInDate+ 1 if TextCheckOutDate is empty.

Regrettably, my jQuery skills aren't yet where I'd like them to be. I know that I have to create a jQuery function that's fired when TextCheckInDate changes, I need to be able to read both textboxes, perform basic date arithmetic and write to the second textbox. The implementation eludes me. Thanks to <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2974496/jquery-javascript-convert-date-string-to-date" rel="nofollow">this post</a>, I know to use <a href="http://www.datejs.com/" rel="nofollow">date.js</a> for my date arithmetic, included below...

What I have so far:

$("input[id$='TextCheckInDate']").keyup (function (e) { checkCheckOutDate( $("#TextCheckInDate").val() ); } ); function checkCheckOutDate(checkInDate) { var startDate = Date.parse(checkInDate); if ($("#TextCheckOutDate").val() == "") { $("#TextCheckOutDate").val((1).days().after(startDate)); } }


Can you prohibit to enter text into date textboxes? If so, you can use following approach:

<script type="text/javascript"> function checkInDateChanged(sender, args) { var checkInDate = sender.get_selectedDate(); var checkOutDateExtender = $find("CheckOutdateExtender"); var checkOutdate = checkOutDateExtender.get_selectedDate(); if (checkOutdate == null || checkOutdate < checkInDate) { checkOutdate = new Date(checkInDate.setDate(checkInDate.getDate() + 1)); checkOutDateExtender.set_selectedDate(checkOutdate); } } </script> <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="TextCheckInDate" /> <ajax:CalendarExtender runat="server" ID="CheckInDateCalendarExtender" TargetControlID="TextCheckInDate" OnClientDateSelectionChanged="checkInDateChanged" /> <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="TextCheckOutDate" /> <ajax:CalendarExtender runat="server" ID="CheckOutDateCalendarExtender" BehaviorID="CheckOutdateExtender" TargetControlID="TextCheckOutDate" />

in PreRender method add code below:

TextCheckInDate.Attributes.Add("readOnly", "readonly"); TextCheckOutDate.Attributes.Add("readOnly", "readonly");


You should just be able to tweak your code slightly to also fire your checkCheckOutDate() function when the checkin textbox's change event fires.

$("input[id$='TextCheckInDate']").bind('keyup,change', function (e) { checkCheckOutDate( $("#TextCheckInDate").val() ); }); function checkCheckOutDate(checkInDate) { var startDate = Date.parse(checkInDate); if ($("#TextCheckOutDate").val() == "") { $("#TextCheckOutDate").val((1).days().after(startDate)); } }

Note that lots of the event methods in jQuery like click(), keyup(), etc are just wrappers around bind('click', function() { ... }).
