Bootstrap Date Paginator jQuery plug-in for UI design of date selection as input

A jQuery plugin which takes Twitter Bootstrap’s already great pagination component and injects a bit of date based magic. In the process creating a hugely simplified and modularised way of paging date based results in your application.

Dates are selectable, scrollable and with the optional calendar select option thanks to eternicode bootstrap-datepicker, you can easily jump to any calendar date.

Requirements


If you haven’t already, you’ll need to download and setup the following dependencies.

Where provided these are the actual versions bootstrap-datepaginator has been tested against. Other versions should work but you use them as your own risk.

Please note this component currently only supports Bootstrap 3. If you want to request support for Bootstrap2, tweet me @jondmilesand if I get enough requests I will consider adding support.

Usage


Thanks to sensible defaults and the date based nature of this component, you can get up and running with just a few lines of code.

That is of course once you’ve downloaded and setup the required dependencies: Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery, Moment.js and bootstrap-datepicker. Slightly more than I would have liked but there’s no point re-inventing the wheel, these are all great components in their own right!

Example, minimum usage:

<!-- Required Stylesheets -->
<link href="./css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">
<link href="./css/bootstrap-datetimepicker.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">

<!-- Markup - paginator will be injected as html into this div -->
id="example">
<!-- Required Javascript --> type="text/javascript" src="./js/jquery.js"> type="text/javascript" src="./js/moment.js"> type="text/javascript" src="./js/bootstrap-datetimepicker.js"> type="text/javascript" src="./js/bootstrap-datepaginator.js"> <!-- Basic initialization using defaults --> type='text/javascript'> $('#example').datepaginator();

The constructor also takes an options object which allows for extensive customization of lookup and feel, as well as behaviour.

Example, with initialization options:

<!-- Initialization with options -->
 type='text/javascript'>
  var options = {
    selectedDate: '2013-01-01',
    selectedDateFormat: 'YYYY-MM-DD'
  }
  $('#example').datepaginator(options);

Options


endDate

Sets the latest date that may be selected, all later dates will be disabled.

Expects: String, or Moment. Default: End of time

Methods


setSelectedDate

Sets the selected date, triggering a refresh to reflect the new state.

$('#datepaginator').datepaginator('setSelectedDate', ['2013-10-05', 'YYYY-MM-DD']);

If called without passing a format argument, selectedDateFormat will be used.

$('#datepaginator').datepaginator('setSelectedDate', '2013-10-05');

remove

Removes the date paginator component. Removing attached events, internal attached objects, and added HTML elements.

$('#datepaginator').datepaginator('remove');

Events


selectedDateChanged

Fired when the selected date changes. You can bind to it using either the callback handler or the standard jQuery .on method

Example: callback handler

var options = {
  onSelectedDateChanged: function(event, date) {
    // Your logic goes here
  }
}
$('#event-example').datepaginator(options);

Example: jQuery .on method

$('#event-example').on('selectedDateChanged', function(event, date) {
  // Your logic goes here
});
