I have a joomla calendar set up:
<?php defined('_JEXEC') or die; JHTML::_('behavior.calendar'); echo '<div id="calendarBoxes" >'; echo '<div id="datereceived1" class="datereceived1" >'; echo JHtml::calendar(date("d/m/Y"),'dateReceived','dateReceived' , '%d-%m-%Y'); echo "</div>";
This works fine and shows the calendar which then populates the box correctly.
I need to get the populated value so that I can use it in an ajax call to save it to a database.
I'm doing this:
stock.datereceived = jQuery( "#dateReceived" ).val();
but this returns nothing.
I looked at the code inspector and I can see the value:
<input type="text" id="dateReceived" name="dateReceived" value="" data-alt-value="13-10-2019" autocomplete="off" data-local-value="13-10-2019">
but I can't access the data. I can't use
And I can't find any getter or setter for the calendar.
Any help would be great. thanks
I've tried a few debug type things without success:
stock.datereceived = jQuery( "#dateReceived" ).val(); console.log("stock.datereceived is "+stock.datereceived); console.log("getElementById is "+jQuery("dateReceived").attr("data-alt-value") );
which gives stock.datereceived is stock-lists:268 getElementById is undefined in the element inspector
