getDate causes error if datepicker does not exist

Reported by: sorpigal Owned by: grabanski
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.6rc1
Component: ui.datepicker Version: 1.6b
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:

Description

Steps to reproduce: A minimal test is attached.

Actual behavior: "elem is undefined" (FF) or "undefined is null or not an object" both on line 622 of jquery-1.2.6.js

Expected behavior: A *friendly* error message that gives some clue as to the problem or the location of the problem.

Yeah I know, JS error handling sucks. You could just check target in _getDateDatepicker for undefined and throw me a "hey, dummy!" message. That would be sufficient.

This will probably also come up for other options.
