Datetimepicker in form not transferring date

At the backend of my opencart e-commerce package, there is the possibility to insert vouchers for customers. However, there is standard no possibility to set a start and end date (1 year later) for the voucher. Therefore I have adapted the voucher.tpl template to include this possibility. I have implemented this completely identical as for the coupon.tpl where there is the possibility to enter a start date and end date.

The input field for the start date and end date is using the datetimepicker script. The datepicker is showing up correctly when I click the calendar button (see image 1) and the date is showing up.

The dates are used in a form, but unfortunately the data seem not be transferred with the form when the save button is clicked. I see no difference with the coupon.tpl page where everything is working properly. I spent already many hours in founding the error but did not succeed yet. Could somebody help me on my way?
Thanks,
SabKo

The voucher.tpl has the following code:

<div id="content">
<div class="page-header">
<div class="container-fluid">
<div class="pull-right">
<button type="submit" form="form-voucher" data-toggle="tooltip" title="<?php echo $button_save; ?>" class="btn btn-primary"><i class="fa fa-save"></i></button>

The controller page has the following code, so should be able to read the input of the dates:

if (isset($this->request->post['date_start'])) {
$data['date_start'] = $this->request->post['date_start'];
} elseif (!empty($voucher_info)) {
$data['date_start'] = ($voucher_info['date_start'] != '0000-00-00' ? $voucher_info['date_start'] : '');
} else {
$data['date_start'] = date('Y-m-d', time());
}

if (isset($this->request->post['date_end'])) {
$data['date_end'] = $this->request->post['date_end'];
} elseif (!empty($voucher_info)) {
$data['date_end'] = ($voucher_info['date_end'] != '0000-00-00' ? $voucher_info['date_end'] : '');
} else {
$data['date_end'] = date('Y-m-d', strtotime('+1 month'));
}

Answer

You're initialize your datetime picker on div with class .date but you have to initialize it on inputs with their classes or ids.

replace this code:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
   $('.date').datetimepicker({
   pickTime: false
  });
  //--></script>

with this one:

    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
 $('#input-date-start').datetimepicker({
   pickTime: false
  });
   $('#input-date-end').datetimepicker({
   pickTime: false
  });
  //--></script>
