highlight specific dates in datepicker

I have to highlight some specific dates on given datepicker. I quickly hacked together additional setHighlight method. It's my first attempt in modifying jQuery UI, so probably I've made a lot of mistakes. For example, i don't know if ''oc()'' function is at all necessary.

What I'd like to see is the more generic ability to set individual class for each cell - I couldn't achieve this yet, and the patch just fixes my specific problem. It's just a proposal and is probably not feasible to be merged directly.

Patch attached below.

OK, so I've managed to implement it. I still don't know if ''oc()'' function is necessary, but the rest of the code seems well enough.


										  jQuery("#datepicker").datepicker('setHighlight', { css_class_name1: [Array of Dates],
                                                   css_class_name2: [Array of Dates]


										  jQuery("#datepicker").datepicker('setHighlight', { blue: [new Date (2009,5,1), new Date(2009,5,2)],
                                                   red: [new Date (2009,5,7), new Date(2009,5,12)]

Of course css classes need to be defined somewhere in custom css file.

''ui.datepicker.highlight_v2.patch'' attached.

You can already achieve this through the beforeShowDay setting. This is set to a function that is called for each date shown. It receives the date and returns an array where [0] is true if the date is selectable, false if not, [1] is one or more CSS classes to apply, [2] is an optional popup tooltip. See the noWeekends function in the plugin for an example.
