Topic: [Help] DatePicker override button values with jQuery & JS

joel.jdesignera pro asked 5 years ago

Is there any way to intercept or override the date picker buttons value? Example, if I users were to click on today, it will override the value being set to maybe Today, instead of the date format of today. I tried this and it isn't working as I thought it will:

    // Overrides Date Picker Today Button default value
    $('#profile #experience.section  button.picker__button--today').click(function(e) {
        $('#profile #experience.section input[type="hidden"][name="exp-end"]').val('Present');

The datepicker has a today button, that sets the value to today date. But instead of having the button to set the value to today's date. I would like it to set to a custom value that isn't a date. Example a text.
