You can see the below code to add start date and end date field in admin custom module(Which is created using module creator).

Create two fields “start_date” and “end_date” in database table of your custom module.
$dateFormatIso = Mage::app()->getLocale() ->getDateFormat(Mage_Core_Model_Locale::FORMAT_TYPE_SHORT);
$fieldset->addField(‘start_date’, ‘date’, array(
‘label’ => Mage::helper(‘banner’)->__(‘Start Date’),
‘title’ => Mage::helper(‘banner’)->__(‘Start Date’),
‘name’ => ‘start_date’,
‘image’ => $this->getSkinUrl(‘images/grid-cal.gif’),
‘format’ => $dateFormatIso,
‘value’ => ‘start_date’,
//’required’ => true,
$fieldset->addField(‘end_date’, ‘date’, array(
‘label’ => Mage::helper(‘banner’)->__(‘End Date’),
‘title’ => Mage::helper(‘banner’)->__(‘End Date’),
‘name’ => ‘end_date’,
‘image’ => $this->getSkinUrl(‘images/grid-cal.gif’),
‘format’ => $dateFormatIso,
‘value’ => ‘end_date’,
//’required’ => true,

Copy and paste the above code to your custom_module/block/adminhtml/custom_module/Edit/Tab/Form.php file
and than open controller of the same module
Path :: custom_module/controllers/adminhtml/custommoduleController.php

Add below lines before $model->save() to save dates in
function saveAction().

if($data[‘start_date’] != NULL )
$date = Mage::app()->getLocale()->date($data[‘start_date’], Zend_Date::DATE_SHORT);
$model->setStartDate($date->toString(‘YYYY-MM-dd HH:mm:ss’));
if($data[‘end_date’] != NULL)
$date1 = Mage::app()->getLocale()->date($data[‘end_date’], Zend_Date::DATE_SHORT);
$model->setEndDate($date1->toString(‘YYYY-MM-dd HH:mm:ss’));
