DatePicker JSP Tag Overview

The DatePicker JSP tag is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI DatePicker widget.

Getting Started


Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI DatePicker.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for JSP.

Step 2 Create a new action method which renders the view.

    @RequestMapping(value = {"index"}, method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String index() {

        return "web/datepicker/index";

Step 3 Add the Kendo UI taglib mapping to the page.

    <%@taglib prefix="kendo" uri="http://www.kendoui.com/jsp/tags"%>

Step 4 Add a datepicker tag.

    <kendo:datePicker name="datepicker" value="<%= new java.util.Date() %>">

Event Handling

Subscribe to Events

You can subscribe to all events exposed by Kendo UI DatePicker by the handler name.

    <kendo:datePicker name="datepicker" change="datepicker_change"></kendo:datePicker>

        function datepicker_change() {
            //Handle the change event


Existing Instances

You are able to reference an existing DatePicker instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, you are able to use the DatePicker API to control its behavior.

    //Put this after your Kendo DatePicker tag declaration
    $(function() {
        // Notice that the Name() of the datepicker is used to get its client-side instance
        var datepicker = $("#datepicker").data("kendoDatePicker");
