    Hi All,

    Note: Here date filed need to allow user able type manually or select with the date picker. 

    please reply as soon as possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi mamidi,

    According to your requirement,I suggest you could use jQuery Validation and it allow Datepicker fields to be validated before submission:

    I make a simple demo,you could refer to:

    @model WebApplication1.Models.YourModel
        label {
    @using (Html.BeginForm("ActionName", "ControllerName", FormMethod.Post, new { id = "loginForm" }))
        @Html.EditorFor(m => m.Dateofbirth)
        <input type="submit" value="submit" />
    @section scripts{
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.23/themes/south-street/jquery-ui.css">
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.23/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://keith-wood.name/js/jquery.validate.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://keith-wood.name/js/jquery.ui.datepicker.validation.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function () { $("#loginForm").validate({ rules: { Dateofbirth: { required: true, dpDate: true } } }); $("input[name='Dateofbirth']").datepicker({ dateFormat: "dd/mm/yy", changeMonth: true, changeYear: true }); }); </script> }

    How it works in my project:

    When you have to fetch the date values selected in the date picker control then you simple use the .val() method.


    Now you can just use a simple validation methods to validate the date time values. 

    jQuery Datepicker 2 minutes Tutorial is the one which you will find very useful.

    Try this one. maybe help you.

    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker();
        $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker( "option", "dateFormat",'yy-mm-dd');


    $('#myDateTextBox').blur(function () {
        var parsedDate = Globalize.parseDate($(this).val());
        if (parsedDate == null) {
        else {
            $(this).val(Globalize.format(parsedDate, 'd'));
