Choose date calendar issues

Hello,

I have a calendar set up to select dates for the tickets for my clients site. Everything works good, except I have all these unnecessary values come up in the cart. Can someone help me with this?

My testing site: http://rugbyamerica.com/nicole/junglequeen/reservations.php
I followed this tutorial to make the calendar: http://www.triconsole.com/php/calendar_datepicker.php

    The problem here is that your calendar script relies on a bunch of hidden data fields to function. If you don't want these to show up in FoxyCart, you'll have to preface each of these fields with x: like this "x:date5". This might break the script, though.

    My recommendation (sorry) is to rebuild the popup calendar using jQueryUI's datepicker solution. I've used this several times and it doesn't add extra hidden and is a very elegant calendar. I know this is probably not the solution you were looking for, sorry. :)

  • You know what? I actually like that one much better. I'll use it instead. Thanks so much for the help!

    Hi @sparkweb I have a similar problem,

    My client need to setup delivery dates for shipping their products. But I can't make it work. Support team have done and incredible work so far helping me to setup all the features that my customer need. But I'm stuck in this one and the datepicker Jq UI it's not working... I'm not a developer, so probably im doing something wrong... I'm completely lost here. I follow some instructions in the link https://wiki.foxycart.com/snippets/add_to_cart_form/using_calendar_date_picker

    But unfortunately it's not working... could you tell me what details do you need to know, so you can take a look and help me out.

    thank you.

    Just to update here publicly - we've been talking with @pablo via email as well - and we wrote up a new page on our wiki for getting a datepicker added to the checkout here: https://wiki.foxycart.com/v/2.0/snippets/checkout_custom_datepicker_field
