How to format date with hours, minutes and seconds when using jQuery UI Datepicker?

Is it possible to format a date with jQuery UI Datepicker as to show hours, minutes and seconds?

This is my current mockup:

$(function() {
    $('#datepicker').datepicker({ dateFormat: 'yyy-dd-mm HH:MM:ss' }).val();
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
  <input type="text" id="datepicker">
  <script src=""></script>
  <script src=""></script>

When I call .datepicker({ dateFormat: 'yyy-dd-mm HH:MM:ss' }) the returned value is:

201313-07-03 HH:July:ss

Here is a JSFiddle.


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

For the time picker, you should add timepicker to Datepicker, and it would be formatted with one equivalent command.


Use this one that extend jQuery UI Datepicker. You can pick up both date and time.
