would be nice if the datepicke had a datepicker("refresh"); function to force the datepicker to redraw itself.

This shouldn't be necessary as the datepicker should always redraw itself when anything changes. In what circumstances are you seeing a need for this?

I am using datepicker showing special dates. Great that the Month/Year Notify has been fixed so I can load the special dates data (ajax) before displaying the calendar. This refresh request also has to do with special dates. The underlying data structure holding the special dates for the currently displayed month may also change and I would like to instruct the calendar to redraw all month days. I hope that clarifies my request.

Needless to say I think this plugin rocks. Very neat code, well set up!

Can you add this to the $.extend(Datepicker.prototype, {... section and test it out?

/* Redraw the date picker attached to an input field or division.

@param target element - the target input field or division or span */

_refreshDatepicker: function(target) {

var inst = $.data(target, PROP_NAME); if (inst) {

Added the code and tested it in my application with an inline datepicker. It works like a charm (in IE6&7, Safari 3.1 (windows) and Firefox 2). I tested with only one datepicker on the page, so I don't know how it behaves with multiple datepickers shown at the same time. Thanks, this code helps me a lot!
