Highlight <TR> entire week datepicker

I have a datepicker that is fully functional and is working whereby you can select an entire commencing working week (Mon-Fri). What I am now trying to do is extend it a little further so that when I click on a specific week. It will highlight that entire . I have it paritally working which looks like the following: Calandar preivew. It can be seen that the problem I am having is that the table row to me seems to be doing a odd, even, odd even. As for the first week I highlight the row is highlighted in red and the cells are hihglighted in yellow. Then the week afer that it work fines and then if I was to select the week after that the same would be repeated. I tried checking the jquery-ui-1.8.4.custom.css and the jquery-ui.css, and had no luck. What seems to confuse me is why are the cells being highlighted in yellow? The code follows for my datepicker.


    var startDate;
    var endDate;
    var selectCurrentWeek = function() 
        window.setTimeout(function () { $('.week-picker').find('.ui-datepicker-current-day a').addClass('ui-state-active')}, 1);
    function check(d) {
        if(d.length() == 2) {
            dd = d;
            return dd;
        } else {
            dd = "0" + myDateParts[0];
            return dd;

    var selectedWeek;//remember which week the user selected here

    $('.week-picker').datepicker( {
        beforeShowDay: $.datepicker.noWeekends,
        showOtherMonths: true,
        selectOtherMonths: true,
        onSelect: function(dateText, inst) {
            var date = $(this).datepicker('getDate');
            startDate = new Date(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth(), date.getDate() - date.getDay() + 1);
            endDate = new Date(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth(), date.getDate() - date.getDay() + 6);
            var dateFormat = 'yy-mm-dd'
            var newDate = $('#startDate').text($.datepicker.formatDate( dateFormat, startDate, inst.settings ));

            var oldDate = document.getElementById('startDate');
            var date_textnode = oldDate.firstChild;
            var date_text = date_textnode.data;
            myDateParts = date_text.split("-");

            var dd = myDateParts[2];

            var mm = myDateParts[1];

            var yy = myDateParts[0];


            window.location.href = "/timesheet?week_commencing=" + yy + "-" + mm + "-" + dd;

        beforeShowDay: function(date) {

            var cssClass = '';
            if(date >= startDate && date <= endDate)
                cssClass = 'ui-datepicker-current-day';
            return [true, cssClass];
        onChangeMonthYear: function(year, month, inst) {

   $( ".week-picker" ).datepicker().click(function(event) {
    // highlight the TR

    // highlight the TD > A
    $('.week-picker .ui-datepicker-calendar tr').live('mousemove', function() { $(this).find('td a').addClass('ui-state-hover'); });
    $('.week-picker .ui-datepicker-calendar tr').live('mouseleave', function() { $(this).find('td a').removeClass('ui-state-hover'); });



<div class="datepicker borderbox">
        <b><center>Hours for Week commencing: <span id="startDate"></span></center></b>
        <div class="week-picker"></div>


.highlight {
    border: 1px solid red;

.white {
    background: white !important;

I have tried looking at the following stackoverflow question Related stackoverflow. Had no luck with this, as the link was broken and also tried viewing the it in JSfiddle. Further to this the way I have set my datepicker is different.

I am intially trying to get my calendar to work like this But for some reason when I try do this I get the following. Is this something to do with the css


Calendar & Firebug output



Is this what you want?


There were a couple of things that went wrong:

The ui-datepicker-current-day class was applied to a <td> element, so it only needs to travel one level up to find the <tr>, so I took away one call to parent():


You set multiple days with the ui-datepicker-current-day class. That was why I needed to use the :eq(0) selector to only select the first element:


Also, you were calling the wrong class for the statement above.
