Unobtrusive Date-Picker Widget V4

I would like to have a look if it is feasible to replace JSCalendarContrib with this picker.

That would also mean to replace current 'hardcoded' calls like:

   -class   => 'editTableCalendarButton',
   -name    => 'calendar',
   -onclick => "return showCalendar('id$theName','$ifFormat')",
   -src     => Foswiki::Func::getPubUrlPath() . '/'
     . $Foswiki::cfg{SystemWebName}
     . '/JSCalendarContrib/img.gif',
   -alt   => 'Calendar',
   -align => 'middle'

by something more future proof. Start by actually using Foswiki::Contrib::JSCalendarContrib::renderDateForEdit.

See also Item14056 for suggested alternatives.

We are already shipping jquery-ui which comes with a decent date picker. MoreFormfieldsPlugin provides a date2 formfield type, as well as a separate time picker and a time formfield. Only thing jquery-ui 's date picker is lacking is conversion of different time formats. But that is best served by JQMomentContrib basically.

Okay, let's no-action this one. It's ancient. Or is there an action here between this and Item14056 to deprecate JSCalenderContrib and change our defaults to use the new jquery-ui picker.

While jquery-ui datepicker is the way to go when deprecating JSCalenderContrib, it is not yet a 100% replacement. As is, it covers say 95% of all use cases. There are some config options and conversions part of jscalender that are not in jquery-ui datepicker. I.E. jscalender understands a lot more date formats for initial values than jquery-ui datepicker....something we probably need to port then. So "Proposal Required" is the right approach, which should then cover all features in jscalender that we'd like to preserve. The bits are there ...
