<div class="row">

    <?php echo $form->label($model,'date'); ?>

    <?php $this->widget('zii.widgets.jui.CJuiDatePicker', array(



    )); ?>

    <?php echo $form->error($model,'date'); ?>

        $this->widget('zii.widgets.jui.CJuiDatePicker', array(

            'model' => $model,

            'attribute' => 'date',

            'options' => array(

                'dateFormat' => 'yy-mm-dd',
