JSCalendar Add-On

The JSCalendarAddOn allows the javascript calendar from JSCalendarContrib to be used for any form. It also supports the use of the contrib from EditTablePlugin. Credit goes to TWiki:Main.ColasNahaboo (whose TWiki:Codev.JavaScriptDatePickerForForm I modified slightly) and TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie (who packaged JSCalendarContrib).


  • Install the add-on
  • You may modify date format, language, or other options used in the calendar by setting the preference variables JSCALENDARDATEFORMAT, JSCALENDARLANGUAGE, and JSCALENDAROPTIONS as discussed in the documentation included in JSCalendarContrib
  • A patch to lib/TWiki/Plugins/EditTablePlugin.pm is attached also which makes EditTablePlugin depend on JSCalendarContrib rather than duplicating this functionality.
