    Date Picker for birthdays?

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a small, inobtrusive and compatible date picker that allows you to easily jump years, even decades via a simple dropdown menu.

    I know there are a lot of date picker scripts out there (I like this one for it's simplicity http://calendar.swazz.org/) but most of them are either too complex and incompatible with some browsers or they don't allow you to jump the year easily.

    I want to use this thing as a help to input the birth date of a new member. It's important that you can select the year as quickly and easily as possible.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Kai

    JSCalendar seems to suit your needs.

    For what it's worth, I am also developing a free/open source calendar that almost fits the bill (quick year selection is not yet a feature, and the text box pop-up is mostly developed but not released). Here is a link: http://www.paulbutler.org/archives/p...ript-calendar/

    Hope these help.

    Thanks for your links.

    I've seen this JSCalendar thingy before but I don't like it for certain usability flaws. No average user will understand that you have to hold the left mouse button to get a selection menu for the years.

    This http://www.phpguru.org/static/dyncalendar.html is pretty much exactly what I need, but it's untested in Safari and it has some minor but annoying little bugs... :-(

    Thanks but that's what I've already got. A calendar tool is meant to make the date picking easier and faster. ;-)

    It's pretty fast to select from three dropdowns, no?
