This article explains how to implement custom date range picker to select year, month or quarter only (Generally used in reporting) and get start date and end date of user selected value. We will use daterangepicker jQuery-Plugin by filamentgroup. I see jQueryUI DatePicker but it’s little bit complicate.

datepicker jQuery Date Range Picker To Select Year, Month Or Quarter Only

By default, Year mode is selected means user can select year. When user clicks on show button, It’ll display start and end date of current year. Similarly, It’ll display current Quarter’s start and end date, current Month’s start and end date in Quarter, Month mode respectively.

HTML:

 <div align="left" class="holder ui-accordion-content ui-helper-reset ui-widget-content ui-corner-bottom ui-accordion-content-active">
                <div class="mode" style="">				
				Select Mode: 
                    <ul class="classDateMode ui-state-default">						
                        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Month</a></li>
                        <li><a href="javascript:void(0);">Quarter</a></li>
                        <li id="yearLink" class="selectedDateMode"><a href="javascript:void(0);">Year</a></li>
                    </ul>
                <div class="ui-datepicker-header ui-widget-header  ui-corner-all outputHolder">
                    <a title="Prev" id="datePrev" class="ui-daterangepicker-prev ui-corner-all" style="left:2px" href="javascript:void(0);">
                        <span class="ui-icon ui-icon-circle-triangle-w">Prev</span></a> 
					<a title="Next" id="dateNext" style="right:2px" 
                            class="ui-daterangepicker-next ui-corner-all" href="javascript:void(0);"><span class="ui-icon ui-icon-circle-triangle-e">
                                Next</span></a><div class="ui-datepicker-title">
                    <input type="text" id="dateFilter" readonly="readonly" style="font-size: 12px;background:transparent;font-weight:bold;border:0px;text-align: center;height: 14px;padding-top:2px " value="2011" class="date ui-rangepicker-input ui-widget-content" /></div>
                </div>

        dateSelection.SelectionMode = $(this).text();		
        dateSelection.show();
        $('.classDateMode li').removeClass('selectedDateMode');
        $(this).parent().addClass('selectedDateMode');     
    });
	$('#Show').click(function () {
	alert('Start Date: ' + dateSelection.getStartDate() + '\nEnd Date:' + dateSelection.getEndDate());	
	});
}); 
 

You have to define your LeftNavControl, RightNavControl and LabelControl if you use different HTML structure and get start and end date using getStartDate() and getEndDate() methods respectively.
