Datepicker altfield not populated after submit (onload)

Blocked by: Blocking:

Let's have an input field for a date using Datepicker, and an altfield populated from the said input, in a JSP.

<script type="text/javascript">
            $("#datepicker").datepicker altField: '#altDate', altFormat: 'yy-mm-dd'});

<input type="text" id="datepicker" name="datepicker" value="${datepicker}"/>
<input type="text" id="altDate" name="altDate"/>

After a form using these inputs is submitted, the "datepicker" field is filled with the previously entered date, but the "altDate" is not. That means that submitting the form again calls the form with the "altDate" being empty.

A solution would be for the altfield to be loaded in a window.onload function which checks the content of the "datepicker" field.

I don't really understand the problem. The example code will never have a valid value on load. Also, since submitting a form will result in a new page load, I don't know why you're trying to point to a bug based on a successful submit.

If you continue to have problems, please ask for hep on the forums.

It's because the datepicker field gets populated after form submition (or on page load, as you wish), but the associated altfield does not.

I've asked a question about it in the forums.
