eZe DatePicker v 1.0 (Beta) - Code Released

Demo
Finally here it is! The initial release of eZe DatePicker v 1.0. (Beta)
The idea behind this innovative Date Picker is to reduce the clicks to select Month and Year from a date-picker control. In normal date-picker controls, user should click on a link, one way or other, to list the Months and Years. All the months and more years are always listed in this new eZe DatePicker control to select it quickly.

What's New?

In this release Month and Year selection panel added to the left side of the normal Date Picker to give an eZe access to all the months and more years, without an extra click.

What's Next?

I am trying to add this feature to JQuery UI, by contributing it to the official JQuery DatePicker.

There is a lot of room for improvements. So, please give your valuable feedback to improve it.

Download eZe DatePicker v 1.0. (Beta) Here
Demo:







Known Issue: Datepicker jumping up on Year/Month selection in Google Chrome. This is because, it is within an iFrame. This is not a bug of the control. It will be fixed soon.

Thanks for your feedback!
I have incorporated some of the features suggested here. The main one is regarding the year selection.

Innovative DatePicker - Initial Design


The idea behind this innovative Date Picker is to reduce the clicks to select a different Month and Year. There is only a slight change from an ordinary Date Picker design and I think that simple change can do a lot to reduce clicks.

What is new?

Month and Year selection panel added to the left side of the normal Date Picker to give an easy access to all the months and more years, without an extra click.

I am currently working on this. So, please follow this post to see it in action.

Time to act!


I am Paulson George, a Software Engineer from India. By nature I am a "Thinker" and I am always "Thinking" about new Ideas. I always enjoy thinking about something new. Most of those Ideas are there in my mind, not implemented anywhere! In fact, many of them are just New to me. I always find somebody with same thinking frequency doing something similar.

Here I am trying to stop thinking and start acting! At least share my thoughts and innovative ideas, to give it some shape.

By the way, my ideas are NOT limited to any technical field even if I am a technical guy. Ideas will be span across different fields. Anyway, I'll try to categorize them when I move on.

I am expecting your valuable feedback, help and support.

Thank You,
Paulson.
