Set it to readonly.

no, I mean I want the users to select the date by clicking on a particular date from the datepicker, not type in it. By readonly, u mean make it disabled ?


 <script type="text/javascript">

  $(function() {
    $( "#date" ).datepicker({
minDate: 0, 
maxDate: " +10D" ,


<input type="text" name="date" id="date"></td></tr>
I think this will help you just download the juery ui 


as pritaeas said make the field readonly datepicker will still work
