jquery.datePicker example: selectWeek

< date picker home

This example shows the behaviour of a date picker when you set selectWeek to true. As you hover over or select dates on the calendar an entire week appears to be selected instead of a day. In fact, the first day of the week is selected but the calendar display makes it appear that the whole week is selected.

You can use Date.firstDayOfWeek to define where the week starts and so what day is selected when you click on a week.
