jQuery Mobile - Textinput Datetime


datetime type attribute in input defines the date and time control. A date and time (year, month, day, hour, minute, second, fractions of a second) is encoded according to ISO 8601 with the time zone set to UTC.


Following example demonstrates the use of datetime input in the jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>
         <h2>Datetime Input Example</h2>
         <label for = "src">Datetime Input</label>
         <input type = "datetime" id = "src" data-clear-btn = "false">

         <label for = "src1">Clear the Datetime Field</label>
         <input type = "datetime" data-clear-btn = "true" id = "src1">

         <label for = "src2">Datetime Local Input</label>
         <input type = "datetime-local" id = "src2" data-clear-btn = "false">

         <label for = "src3">Clear the Datetime Local Field</label>
         <input type = "datetime-local" data-clear-btn = "true" id = "src3">


Let's carry out the following steps to see how the above code works −
