Persist Entered Dates

The following example demonstrates how to persist the date that is already entered in the DatePicker when the user navigates to another page and then comes back.

While supported by default in modern browsers, this functionality is not provided by Internet Explorer 9 and earlier.

    <div id="example">
      <div id="cap-view" class="demo-section k-header">
        <input id="color" name="color" />

        <input id="datepicker" name="datepicker" />
      $(document).ready(function() {
        // Get the datePicker value from the local storage of the browser.
        var datePickerValue = localStorage.getItem("datePickerValue");

          value: datePickerValue,
          change: function() {
            // Save the datePicker value in the local storage of the browser.
            localStorage.setItem("datePickerValue", this.element.val());

        var data = [
          { text: "Black", value: "1" },
          { text: "Orange", value: "2" },
          { text: "Grey", value: "3" }

        var colorValue = localStorage.getItem("colorValue");

          dataTextField: "text",
          dataValueField: "value",
          dataSource: data,
          value: colorValue,
          change: function() {
            localStorage.setItem("colorValue", this.value());
          index: 0
