Suggested Use

With Option Overrides:

<input type="date" data-role="datebox" name="somedate"
	data-options='{"mode": "datebox", "overrideDateFormat": "%m/%d/%Y"}' />

Global Option Overrides:

// AFTER loading jQM
jQuery.extend(jQuery.jtsage.datebox.prototype.options, {
	'overrideDateFormat': '%d.%m.%Y',


JTSage-DateBox is fully compatible with the old jQM-DateBox, just replace the jQM-DateBox sources with the new source file.

If you have written any of your own code referencing jQM-DateBox, note that the namespace of the plugin has changed to "jtsage".

// Old Way - Data Attribute
$( "#someInput" ).data('mobile-datebox');

// New Way - Data Attribute
$( "#someInput" ).date('jtsage-datebox');

// Old Way - Prototype Overrides
jQuery.extend(, {} );

// New Way - Prototype Overrides
jQuery.extend(jQuery.jtsage.datebox.prototype.options, {} );
