The Bootstrap datepicker is tied to a standard form input field. In order the Bootstrap datepicker to work, focus on the input (click, or use the tab key) to open an interactive calendar in a small overlay. Choose a date, click elsewhere on the page (blur the input), or hit the Esc key to close. If a date is chosen, feedback is shown as the input’s value.
