Datepicker not showing proper field

I’m using Rails version 3.2 and Ruby 1.9.3

I’m trying to make within a form_tag a datepicker field. In my GemFile I
have added gem ‘jquery-rails’ and gem ‘jquery_datepicker’. In the rails
console I have used the command: rails generate jquery:install --ui

Application.js looks like this:

// This is a manifest file that’ll be compiled into application.js,
which will include all the files
// listed below.
//
// Any JavaScript/Coffee file within this directory,
lib/assets/javascripts, vendor/assets/javascripts,
// or vendor/assets/javascripts of plugins, if any, can be referenced
here using a relative path.
//
// It’s not advisable to add code directly here, but if you do, it’ll
appear at the bottom of the
// the compiled file.
//
// WARNING: THE FIRST BLANK LINE MARKS THE END OF WHAT’S TO BE
PROCESSED, ANY BLANK LINE SHOULD// GO AFTER THE REQUIRES BELOW.////=
require jquery//= require jquery_ujs//= require jquery_ui//= require
jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js//= require_tree .

Application.css:

/*

  • This is a manifest file that’ll be compiled into application.css,
    which will include all the files
  • listed below.
  • Any CSS and SCSS file within this directory, lib/assets/stylesheets,
    vendor/assets/stylesheets,
  • or vendor/assets/stylesheets of plugins, if any, can be referenced
    here using a relative path.
  • You’re free to add application-wide styles to this file and they’ll
    appear at the top of the
  • compiled file, but it’s generally better to create a new file per
    style scope.

*= require_self
*= require_tree .
= require_jquery.ui.datepicker/

And in the view:

<%= form_tag url: {action: ‘do_something’} do |f| %>
<%= text_field_tag :birth_date, ‘’, :class => “datepicker” %>
<%= submit_tag “Do something man!”%>
<% end %>

What’s the proper calling of datepicker function for form_tag?

I think you have to add script for datepicker
Just like below

$(function() {
$(".date_picker").datepicker({
dateFormat : ‘d M, yy’,
minDate : 0,
maxDate : +90
});
});
