Bootstrap Datepicker - Months and Years Only


Question

I am using bootstrap datepicker and my code is like following, Demo of the code on jsfiddle

<div class="input-append date" id="datepicker" data-date="02-2012" 
     data-date-format="mm-yyyy">

 <input  type="text" readonly="readonly" name="date" >    
 <span class="add-on"><i class="icon-th"></i></span>      
</div>      


$("#datepicker").datepicker({
        viewMode: 'years',
         format: 'mm-yyyy'
    });

The above code is working fine, but what I am trying to do is allow users pick months and years only.

Could you please tell me how to do that?

Accepted Answer

How about this :

$("#datepicker").datepicker( {
    format: "mm-yyyy",
    viewMode: "months", 
    minViewMode: "months"
});

Reference : Datepicker for Bootstrap


For version 1.2.0 and newer, viewMode has changed to startView, so use:

$("#datepicker").datepicker( {
    format: "mm-yyyy",
    startView: "months", 
    minViewMode: "months"
});

Also see the documentation.

Notice that in the version of 1.2.0 the viewMode has changed to startView.

eg:

$('#sandbox-container input').datepicker({
  startView: 1,
  minViewMode: 1
});

I'm using version 2(supports both bootstrap v2 and v3) and for me this works:

$("#datepicker").datepicker( {
    format: "mm/yyyy",
    startView: "year", 
    minView: "year"
});

For the latest bootstrap-datepicker (1.4.0 at the time of writing), you need to use this:

$('#myDatepicker').datepicker({
    format: "mm/yyyy",
    startView: "year", 
    minViewMode: "months"
})

You should have to add only minViewMode: "months" in your datepicker function.
