datepicker default localisation chinese

If you set an invalid locale to datepicker, it switches to chinese language. I.e. $.datepicker.setDefaults($.datepicker.regionalxy?); Wouldn't it be better to take "en" as default, if an invalid locale is given? I currently have to do this manually.

Let me explain what's happening. You are not setting an invalid locale, you are passing undefined to setDefaults(). setDefaults() does not accept a locale, it accepts an object containing settings which should become the new defaults. When you use an invalid locale, you're indexing into $.datepicker.regional on a key that doesn't exist and getting back undefined. You're then passing undefined to setDefaults() which does nothing. The only reason you'd be getting Chinese at that point is because the defaults are already set to Chinese before this call. Keep in mind that every locale file you load changes the defaults.

Thanks for the explanation. I think it's ok to use the workaround checking for undefined. I was always wondering about getting chinese so nice to know the reason for this ;)
