DatePicker doesn't work properly in IE 6. It rises the Internet explorer up to 98% of the CPU recourses to open the calendar every time it tries to open it, therefore it takes a while before to pops the calendar up. Is there any work around for this? Thanks by the way for this great job you have done so far.

Replying to joern.zaefferer:

Do you have a testpage?

Hi joern,

Please use the date picker demo page( for a test.

It took about 400ms to show the calendar on my laptop.

I did some profiling, found that _updateDatepicker function was the problem.

After I removed event binding lines(see blow) in _updateDatepicker,it only took about 80ms to show the calendar.

Hope this will help.
