Uncaught TypeError: $(…).datepicker is not a function

Recently while working with jQuery I got the below error which says

Uncaught TypeError: $(…).datepicker is not a function

Below is the code which I was using.

$(“#Checkindate”).datepicker({
beforeShow: function (el) {
// set the current value before showing the widget
$(this).data(‘previous’, $(el).val());
},

Also you can read:

JSLink in SharePoint 2013 or JSLink in SharePoint Online

Steps to retrieve alternative languages from language settings in SharePoint online using JavaScript object model?

Solution:
If there is another library that is using the $ variable, you can do this:

var $j = jQuery.noConflict();


$(“#Checkindate”).datepicker({
beforeShow: function (el) {
// set the current value before showing the widget
$(this).data(‘previous’, $(el).val());
},

Hope this will be helpful.
