Date picker shows "Server Error"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Out of the blue, the standard date picker in default SP forms (not InfoPath) show a server error instead of the current date in a month view. Anyone seen this before?

jQuery Date picker Implementation in ASP.NET

I've posted a wrapper ASP.NET around the jQuery.UI Datepickercontrol. This small client side calendar control is compact, looks nice and is very easy to use and I've added it some time back to my control library.

This is primarily an update for the jQuery.ui version, and so I spend a few hours or so cleaning it up which wasn't as easy as it could have been since the API has changed quite drastically from Marc's original implementation. The biggest changes have to do with the theming integration and the resulting explosion of related resources.

If you want to use this component you can check it out a sample and the code here:

Error on Jquery Date Picker

Jquery date picker in ASP.NET Web user control does not work


Hello, I have the most frustrating problem and being new to JQuery does make it more difficult. I have an ASP.NET web user control with an ASP.NET box which I want to apply a JQuery date picker to, then of course I have server side code which takes the date and processes it etc. The date picker will not work. I can achieve a working JQuery date picker with an ASP.NET textbox if there is no user control involved, or within the user control I use a html text box instead, but once I add runat="server" to the text box, it does not work. Is there a way I can achieve this? (the web user control will be wrapped in an update panel too which at the moment will work with the html control/web user control without the server side functionality)

Calendar Date Picker Restriction

Is there a way to restrict the user to selecting only the first day of a month from the Date Picker calendar? The database list the yearmonth column as datetime and the entries are 01/01/2010, 02/01/2010, 03/01/2010. . . to represent the month. So I need to be able to provide the calendar in the parameter panel but only let the user select the first day of a month. If I can't do this is there some way of providing an error message when/if they select another day of the month that would instruct them to select the first day of the month? Any help is greatly appreciated.

jQuery Date Picker

I am using following attached date picker. http://rapidshare.com/files/417385026/jQuery_Date_Picker.zip http://www.2shared.com/file/d2NK63P-/jQuery_Date_Picker.html Problem is if i don't use font-size tag in the body of the HTML page date picker size becomes too big . I tried using Font-size tag with the div/table/td inside which i put the asp textBox which has date picker but it doesn't work, it works only with body to reduce the datepicker size. Please let me know how i can reduce the size of this date picker without actually reducing the font size of the whole page. Here are screen shots With font size tag in body http://img835.imageshack.us/i/92688528.jpg Without font size tag in body http://img833.imageshack.us/i/48042121.jpgjQuery that i am usinghttp://jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/#dropdown-month-year Thank You.

Change the Default Date in the Date Picker Control

Hi, I have a WPF Datagrid in which one of the columns is a Date Column. So i have used a DataTemplateColumn as Follows     <my:DataGridTemplateColumn CellTemplate="{StaticResource EffDateDateTimePickerControl}"   CellEditingTemplate="{StaticResource addrEffDate}" Header="Effective Date"/> And in my Resource File i have written the following code: Style   TargetType="{x:Type my:Calendar}" x:Key="CalenderControlTemplate">     <Setter Property="Template">     <Setter.Value>     <ControlTemplate TargetType="my:Calendar" >     <my:CalendarItem Name="myCalendarItem"   Background="White"   BorderBrush="Black"   BorderThickness="1"   VerticalAlignment="Center" />     </ControlTemplate>       </Setter.Value>     </Setter>     </Style>       <DataTemplate x:Key="EffDateDateTimePickerControl">     <Label x:Name="lblEffDate" Content="{Binding effectiveDate,Mode=TwoWay}" ></Label>     </DataTemplate>     <DataTemplate x:Ke

Rich Text in list forms & date picker

Hi, I was hoping that someone could help me on a few issues. I have created a custom list form in sharepoint designer to display the contents of my list in a nice format. I have also customised the edit form for the list. I am having a problem with special characters now showing up when they are being entered (the HTML does not seem to be parsed on the output). I would like to make a description field in my list edit form a rich text box, is this possible? This is the code I am using at the moment for the text box: <asp:TextBox runat="server" id="ff5{$Pos}" text="{@status}" textmode="multiline" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff5',$Pos),'Text','TextChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@status')}" Width="600px" Height="100px" /> And this is the code that I am using on the display side of the list to show the status update: <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="ddwrt:AutoNewLine(string(@status))" /> Is there code that I can use on the data entry side that will show a rich text box? Also then I will need to change the tag on the display end so it parses the HTML? In addition to this, is there specific code for a 'date picker' ? At the moment my date entry box is just a standard text box, is there code I can u

Date Picker Parameter

hi guys... I can't get the date picker for ssrs 08 reports to work. My underlying columns is a datetime type and as far as I know that should do it. It just shows the dates as normal entries even though I changed the Data type from text to date/time in the report parameters properties. Any idea much appricated? Thx

Date picker format -> Preview vs Report


I'm at my wits end!

When previewing a report on one of our machines, the date format for a parameter insists that en-GB dates are invalid (dd-mm-yyyy-). Instead, it requires en-US (mm-dd-yyyy). When deploying the report, it goes back to the correct format of en-GB.

Bear in mind, this works on all of the rest of our development machines exactly as required. Only this one machine doesn't work.

I've tried: -

  • Setting the report properties to United Kingdom - it already was
  • Changing ReportViewer.aspx to include --> <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" Inherits="Microsoft.ReportingServices.WebServer.ReportViewerPage" Culture="en-GB" %>
  • Ensuring that regional settings (control panel->regional and language options) is setup to English -United Kingdom. It all already was (regional, location, language and advanced tabs all setup to UK)
  • Ensuring the browser on the machine is setup to English -United Kingdom, it already was
  • Adding <globalization culture="en-GB" uiCulture="en-GB" /> to web.config
  • Updating BIOS (not my idea, but was getting to the point where I'd try anything! Basically, the BIOS has the date in the US format, so despite my reasoning that it's irrelevant due to regional settings, we upda

Forms Library Changed event and Validation event returns empty string on date picker


Hi there,

I'm trying to do date validation on a date and time picker through code (i want to make sure that the date is later than today and that the next date is at least one day later than that).

But when i try to get the value in the chagned event, i keep getting empty string as value.

What am i doing wrong here??

This is the code:

public void LeaveRequestFrom_Changed(object sender, XmlEventArgs e)
      // Write your code here to change the main data source.
      XPathNavigator xroot = MainDataSource.CreateNavigator();
      XPathNavigator fromdate = xroot.SelectSingleNode(
        "/my:myFields/my:LeaveRequestFrom", NamespaceManager);

      if (fromdate.Value != "")
        //Make sure the from date is in the future
        if (DateTime.Parse(fromdate.Value) < DateTime.Today.AddDays(1))

Date Field and Date Picker


I have a simple date field on form, it puts the date picker way out there, i.e., not next to the date field.  This is happening to all forms to capture data for lists.  How do I bring this right next to the date field?

MDX::Data Picker Format incompatible with my date key



I've searched the forum and net but can't find anything tht exactly explains how I can fix my problem.   The closest I've come is this thread http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/92ccae0e-a764-49b5-a3a6-f0acd111372d

I'm using Datepicker to pass date parameters to an MDX query.

The Date Picker uses the format YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MI:SS  e.g 2010-01-01T00:00:00 

My Key is 20100101

I've tried various things but can't get it to transform the datepicker date correctly.  Two examples below.   Does anyone have any insight in to what else I could try.


SELECT STRTOMEMBER("[Date].[Date].&[" + Format(CDate(@StartDateParam), "yyyyMMdd") + "]") : STRTOMEMBE

Report Builder Filter shows Field as Date Type =Text instead of Date


My Data was created by retrieving ODBC data - using PowerPivot for Excel 2010, and has Birthdate defined as a Data Type = "Date".  This was uploaded to SharePoint, and a New Dataset was created to point at it.

I'm using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Report Builder 3.0.  I tried to filter this data on Birthdate, but when I go into the Filter, and specify the field that was defined as DataType = "Date" in PowerPivot - Report Builder changes the type to "Text", and gray's out the field so that I can't change it to "Date".

If I create an Expression as Cdate(Birthdate.Value), it lets me change the Data Type to "Date", and works appropriately, but we don't want to have to do this with every date field.

Why doesn't Report Builder see this field as a Date ? 

convert date from datetime picker to sql format


I have an application that uses a time date picker control to display a date from a sql (sql 2000) table. Casting from the table to the control works fine, but writing a selected date from the control back to the database does not, I was under the impression that a datatype 'date' in VB would be compatible with SQL datetime datatime, and obviously it is from sql to vb as the date is correctly displayed in the control reading from the table. How do I need to convert the value from the date time picker control to write into sql ?
