Show a calendar for user input in JSP

By: Marlene in JSP Tutorials on 2023-05-11  

To show a calendar in a text field when the user enters it in JSP, you can use JavaScript and jQuery. Here's an example:

  1. Add the jQuery and jQuery UI libraries to your JSP page. You can either download the libraries and include them in your project, or use a CDN link.
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>
  2. Create an input text field in your JSP page and add a CSS class to it. For example:
    <input type="text" class="datepicker">
  3. Initialize the datepicker widget using jQuery. Add the following code to your JSP page:
    $(function() {

Now, when the user clicks on the input text field with the "datepicker" class, a calendar will appear to choose a date.
