Set MinDate +2

I'm working on a new form through which our clients can directly book transfers to and form the airport. Clients can book a transfer from today + 2 (D+2). I have worked with datepicker before and know you can block earlier dates by setting minDate at '+2' but I can't get this to work with the files generated by WFB. I have played with minDate in jquery.ui.datepicker.js but without succes. Changes in this file seem to be overruled by validation_data.js? Anybody ever tried a possible workaround here?

I did this by replacing the date picker with an outside source instead of the built in one. I know I put an example up in this forum.:)

Hi Eric, I have searched every corner of the forum for your example but couldn't find it. Any chance of you having saved your notes ;) ?

Ah, now I understand what you meant with "an example on this forum":rolleyes:

I can get your solution working in a standalone form, change the minDate to +2 so everything works as I want it to work. However, when I add this to my form.html, change the id from item1_date to item138_date_1 (datepicker id in my form) the script doesn't work. It seems to have something to do with the addition _1 to the datefield id, but I can't figure it out. Before I start throwing my keyboard out of the window I'm going to stop for today and continue tomorrow.

Yup you can't alter the id's in the form unless your going to include your own outside libraries to bind to them.

I had this same problem and found a solution :)

Let me know if you're still interested!

As shown on our Order Form where the Skip Delivery & Collection Dates are set to min = 1 and max=60

I had to abandon this project for a few weeks, but I plan to pick it up over the coming days.

Yes, I'm really interested in your solution, it seems to work exactly as what I'm looking for.

Hi Eric, is there any way to disable days directly from the "jquery.ui.datepicker.js" and avoid placing the script from your example above the </head> tag? There is a conflict with other js files when I place your script above the </head> tag and I can't do it that way.
I want to disable Monday and Tuesday if you can help me with that I would very much appreciate it.

Sure try this. Paste it into an html element. Adjust the item1_date_1 to the actual ID of your datepicker.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.12.1/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css" /><script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script><script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.min.js"></script> <script>var jQ = $.noConflict();
jQ(document).ready(function() {
// adjust this to the actual ID of your datepicker
jQ("#item1_date_1").attr("id","item1_date");
});
var jK = jQ.noConflict();
jK( window ).load(function() {
// 1 = monday, 2 = tuesday, 3 = wednesday, 4 = thursday, 5=friday, 6 = saturday, 7=sunday //
var daysToDisable = [1, 2];
jK("#item1_date").datepicker({ beforeShowDay: disableSpecificWeekDays, minDate: 0 });
function disableSpecificWeekDays(date)
{ var day = date.getDay(); for (i = 0; i < daysToDisable.length; i++)
{ if (jK.inArray(day, daysToDisable) != -1)
{ return [false]; } } return [true]; }
});</script>
