I just came across this DateBox which is a Date and Time Picker plugin for mobiles built with jQuery Mobile and customized in various ways to get different date formats as an output. DateBox makes user interaction with dates and times simple and intuitive which is easy to implement and totally extensible.
DateBox is very simple to use by providing lot of customization. DateBox comes in four different display modes one is Standard (popup mode), Forced input (modal popup mode), Unique page (dialog mode) and the other is Inline mode – so you could choose any mode to display the calendar which suits your application.
And DateBox also comes with Multiple Data Entry modes, like Android style date picker, normal calendar style, Slide style, iPhone like Flip Wheel, 12 and 24 hour time picker and Duration time picker. And yes it is fully localized by allowing you to configure Month Names, Day Names and all labels & buttons text are configurable too. Which even supports data-limiting of inputs like maximum and minimum years, days – blacklisting of days of the week or specific dates and also allows you to select specific day from any week selection etc.
And DateBox is touch friendly as it uses jQuery mobile as base, means look and feel or theme can be changed as per your application color schemes or standards and to make you feel handy DateBox tool is also providing Theme Editor to quickly change or match the look and feel as per your current application where you wana use this tool. I am sure you would love this DateBox once you see these live examples.
