JAVA Apache Wicket DatePicker Setup

The ShieldUI DatePicker Apache Wicket component offers streamlined setup and deployment of our libraries.

Since it is a wrapper of our javascript DatePicker component, you need to include the references to the CSS and JavaScript resources in the HEAD section of your webpage:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Shield DatePicker</title>
<meta charset="utf-8" />

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/light/all.min.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/shieldui-all.min.js"></script>

    <input type="text" wicket:id="datepicker" />

Then init the datepicker and add it to your wicket page like in the following example:

DatePicker datepicker = new DatePicker("datepicker");
DatePickerOptions options = datepicker.getOptions();

options.setMessages(new DatePickerOptions.MessagesOptions()
options.setValue(new Date());
