EDateRangePicker is a very simple widget that encapsulates the amazing Date Range Picker plugin developed by Filament Group.
The plugin worked with jquery.ui.v1.6 and jquery.v1.5.3 so I updated the plugin to work with latests versions of jquery.ui.v1.8 and jquery.v1.6 and also fixed some bugs on its logic to work with Yii.
So, remember that it is a modified version of the plugin and any feedback on its bugs will be highly appreciated.
The following code assumes that you have unzipped and extract the contents on your extensions folder.
$this->widget('ext.EDateRangePicker',array( 'id'=>'Filter_date', 'name'=>'Filter[date]', 'value'=>'10/02/2011', 'options'=>array('arrows'=>true), 'htmlOptions'=>array('class'=>'inputClass'), ));
