Ticket #3080 (closed bug: fixed)
Datepicker calls _setDateFromField on a div when inline
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||grabanski|
When you have an inline datepicker and set it's date from .datepicker('setDate') immediately after instantiating it, the datepicker('getDate') function will return null until a date is manually selected. I think I tracked this down to line 275-276 where the _getDatePicker function calls _setDateFromField. By adding an extra check to see if the datepicker is a div before trying to call _setDateFromField I fixed it for my needs, but it might be a bit hackish...
Revised it looks like this
ui.datepicker.js lines 275 and 276
if (inst && ($(target).get(0).tagName != 'DIV')) inst._setDateFromField($(target));
