jQuery Date Picker - disable past dates


Question

I am trying to have a date Range select using the UI date picker.

in the from/to field people should not be able to view or select dates previous to the present day.

This is my code:

$(function() {
    var dates = $( "#from, #to" ).datepicker({
        defaultDate: "+1w",
        changeMonth: true,
        numberOfMonths: 1,
        onSelect: function( selectedDate ) {
            var option = this.id == "from" ? "minDate" : "maxDate",
                instance = $( this ).data( "datepicker" ),
                date = $.datepicker.parseDate(
                    instance.settings.dateFormat ||
                    $.datepicker._defaults.dateFormat,
                    selectedDate, instance.settings );
            dates.not( this ).datepicker( "option", option, date );
        }
    });
});

Can some one tell me how to disable dates previous the to the present date.

Accepted Answer

You must create a new date object and set it as minDate when you initialize the datepickers

<label for="from">From</label> <input type="text" id="from" name="from"/> <label for="to">to</label> <input type="text" id="to" name="to"/>

var dateToday = new Date();
var dates = $("#from, #to").datepicker({
    defaultDate: "+1w",
    changeMonth: true,
    numberOfMonths: 3,
    minDate: dateToday,
    onSelect: function(selectedDate) {
        var option = this.id == "from" ? "minDate" : "maxDate",
            instance = $(this).data("datepicker"),
            date = $.datepicker.parseDate(instance.settings.dateFormat || $.datepicker._defaults.dateFormat, selectedDate, instance.settings);
        dates.not(this).datepicker("option", option, date);
    }
});

Edit - from your comment now it works as expected http://jsfiddle.net/nicolapeluchetti/dAyzq/1/

$('#datepicker-dep').datepicker({
    minDate: 0
});

minDate:0 works for me.

Use the "minDate" option to restrict the earliest allowed date. The value "0" means today (0 days from today):

    $(document).ready(function () {
        $("#txtdate").datepicker({
            minDate: 0,
            // ...
        });
    });

Just to add to this:

If you also need to prevent the user to manually type a date in the past, this is a possible solution. This is what we ended up doing (based on @Nicola Peluchetti's answer)

var dateToday = new Date();

$("#myDatePickerInput").change(function () {
    var updatedDate = $(this).val();
    var instance = $(this).data("datepicker");
    var date = $.datepicker.parseDate(instance.settings.dateFormat || $.datepicker._defaults.dateFormat, updatedDate, instance.settings);

    if (date < dateToday) {
        $(this).datepicker("setDate", dateToday);
    }
});

What this does is to change the value to today's date if the user manually types a date in the past.

Live Demo ,try this,

    $('#from').datepicker(
     { 
        minDate: 0,
        beforeShow: function() {
        $(this).datepicker('option', 'maxDate', $('#to').val());
      }
   });
  $('#to').datepicker(
     {
        defaultDate: "+1w",
        beforeShow: function() {
        $(this).datepicker('option', 'minDate', $('#from').val());
        if ($('#from').val() === '') $(this).datepicker('option', 'minDate', 0);                             
     }
   });

This is easy way to do this

$('#datepicker').datepicker('setStartDate', new Date());

also we can disable future days

$('#datepicker').datepicker('setEndDate', new Date());
