jQuery Datepicker localization

I need a french calendar and I can't understand the problem. I guess I'm not using the regional options like it should be. But...

Here is my code :

$(function() {
      showMonthAfterYear: false,
      showOn: 'both',
      buttonImage: 'media/img/calendar.png',
      buttonImageOnly: true,
      dateFormat:'d MM, y'



You can do like this

 $.datepicker.regional['fr'] = {clearText: 'Effacer', clearStatus: '',
    closeText: 'Fermer', closeStatus: 'Fermer sans modifier',
    prevText: '<Préc', prevStatus: 'Voir le mois précédent',
    nextText: 'Suiv>', nextStatus: 'Voir le mois suivant',
    currentText: 'Courant', currentStatus: 'Voir le mois courant',
    monthNames: ['Janvier','Février','Mars','Avril','Mai','Juin',
    monthNamesShort: ['Jan','Fév','Mar','Avr','Mai','Jun',
    monthStatus: 'Voir un autre mois', yearStatus: 'Voir un autre année',
    weekHeader: 'Sm', weekStatus: '',
    dayNames: ['Dimanche','Lundi','Mardi','Mercredi','Jeudi','Vendredi','Samedi'],
    dayNamesShort: ['Dim','Lun','Mar','Mer','Jeu','Ven','Sam'],
    dayNamesMin: ['Di','Lu','Ma','Me','Je','Ve','Sa'],
    dayStatus: 'Utiliser DD comme premier jour de la semaine', dateStatus: 'Choisir le DD, MM d',
    dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy', firstDay: 0, 
    initStatus: 'Choisir la date', isRTL: false};

That code should work, but you need to include the localization in your page (it isn't included by default). Try putting this in your <head> tag, somewhere after you include jQuery and jQueryUI:

<script type="text/javascript"

I can't find where this is documented on the jQueryUI site, but if you view the source of this demo you'll see that this is how they do it. Also, please note that including this JS file will set the datepicker defaults to French, so if you want only some datepickers to be in French, you'll have to set the default back to English.

You can find all languages here at github: https://github.com/jquery/jquery-ui/tree/master/ui/i18n


If you want to include some options besides regional localization, you have to use $.extend, like this:

$(function() {
      showMonthAfterYear: false,
      dateFormat:'d MM, y'

You must extend the regional options like this (code split on multiple lines for readability):

var options = $.extend(
    {},                                  // empty object
    $.datepicker.regional["fr"],         // fr regional
    { dateFormat: "d MM, y" /*, ... */ } // your custom options

The order of parameters is important because of the way jQuery.extend works. Two incorrect examples:

 * This overwrites the global variable itself instead of creating a
 * customized copy of french regional settings
$.extend($.datepicker.regional["fr"], { dateFormat: "d MM, y"});

 * The desired dateFormat is overwritten by french regional 
 * settings' date format
$.extend({ dateFormat: "d MM, y"}, $.datepicker.regional["fr"]);

PS: you also need to load the jQuery UI i18n files:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.1/i18n/jquery-ui-i18n.min.js">

In case you are looking for datepicker in spanish (datepicker en español)

<script type="text/javascript">
    $.datepicker.regional['es'] = {
        monthNames: ['Enero', 'Febrero', 'Marzo', 'Abril', 'Mayo', 'Junio', 'Julio', 'Agosto', 'Septiembre', 'Octubre', 'Noviembre', 'Diciembre'],
        monthNamesShort: ['Ene', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Abr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul', 'Ago', 'Sep', 'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dic'],
        dayNames: ['Domingo', 'Lunes', 'Martes', 'Miercoles', 'Jueves', 'Viernes', 'Sabado'],
        dayNamesShort: ['Dom', 'Lun', 'Mar', 'Mie', 'Jue', 'Vie', 'Sab'],
        dayNamesMin: ['Do', 'Lu', 'Ma', 'Mc', 'Ju', 'Vi', 'Sa']



datepicker in Finnish (Käännös suomeksi)

$.datepicker.regional['fi'] = {
  closeText: "Valmis", // Display text for close link
  prevText: "Edel", // Display text for previous month link
  nextText: "Seur", // Display text for next month link
  currentText: "Tänään", // Display text for current month link
  monthNames: [ "Tammikuu","Helmikuu","Maaliskuu","Huhtikuu","Toukokuu","Kesäkuu",
  "Heinäkuu","Elokuu","Syyskuu","Lokakuu","Marraskuu","Joulukuu" ], // Names of months for drop-down and formatting
  monthNamesShort: [ "Tam", "Hel", "Maa", "Huh", "Tou", "Kes", "Hei", "Elo", "Syy", "Lok", "Mar", "Jou" ], // For formatting
  dayNames: [ "Sunnuntai", "Maanantai", "Tiistai", "Keskiviikko", "Torstai", "Perjantai", "Lauantai" ], // For formatting
  dayNamesShort: [ "Sun", "Maa", "Tii", "Kes", "Tor", "Per", "Lau" ], // For formatting
  dayNamesMin: [ "Su","Ma","Ti","Ke","To","Pe","La" ], // Column headings for days starting at Sunday
  weekHeader: "Vk", // Column header for week of the year
  dateFormat: "mm/dd/yy", // See format options on parseDate
  firstDay: 0, // The first day of the week, Sun = 0, Mon = 1, ...
  isRTL: false, // True if right-to-left language, false if left-to-right
  showMonthAfterYear: false, // True if the year select precedes month, false for month then year
  yearSuffix: "" // Additional text to append to the year in the month headers

Datepicker in german (Deutsch):

$.datepicker.regional['de'] = {
    monthNames: ['Januar','Februar','März','April','Mai','Juni',
    monthNamesShort: ['Jan','Feb','Mär','Apr','Mai','Jun',
    dayNames: ['Sonntag','Montag','Dienstag','Mittwoch','Donnerstag','Freitag','Samstag'],
    dayNamesShort: ['Son','Mon','Die','Mit','Don','Fre','Sam'],
    dayNamesMin: ['So','Mo','Di','Mi','Do','Fr','Sa'],
    firstDay: 1};

I think "datepicker-lv.js" might not load and you are not aware of this. With the default settings on an ASP .NET MVC project you will get the following error :

You should try do download the datepicker-lv.js, include in your project as the others scripts file and load it from there.
