data picker on VF custom page

I have requirments need to create new custom VF page with only controller no standaradController.

problem is i have to display data picker for start date and end date fields.

so i have used <apex:input type="date"   it is not working in IE, Mozilla browers
if use <apex:inputText value="{!caseStartDate}" size="10" id="caseStartDate" label="Start Date" onchange="caseDateValidates()" onclick="DatePicker.pickDate(false, this , false);" />    
 here onchange not working...

any other way to get date picker on VF page and pass the date values to controller based on onchange event ....


You can use <apex:inputField> and bind it with the date field type.

<apex:inputField value="{!acc.Date__c}"/>

Hi Royal,

I'd suggest if the page is not that complex, declare a dummy object which has a Date type field and bind it with the page.
public class Unavailable_Dates_Controller 
    public objWithDateField objForStartDate{get;set;}
    public objWithDateField objForEndDate{get;set;}

    public Unavailable_Dates_Controller(){
        objForStartDate = new objWithDateField();
        objForEndDate = new objWithDateField();
<apex:pageBlockSection > <apex:inputField value="{!objForStartDate.date_field__c}" label="Start Date"/> <apex:inputField value="{!objForEndDate.date_field__c}" label="End Date"/> </apex:pageBlockSection>

And also you can try onfocus instead of onclick.
