You can use code similar to this with the image onload technique:

$("input[id^=dp]").datepicker("option", { beforeShowDay: $.datepicker.noWeekends });

This specific code will prevent the selection of weekend days but other date restrictions (eg exclude list of holidays, or Mondays) can be coded to suit your business needs.

rarely use IOL in grid edit but it is possible because grid edit is complex and oftentimes the coding is invasive to QuickBase's authored code.
