Extend DatePicker with a NotifyUpdate event.

Reported by: Reinout Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: ui.datepicker Version: 1.8
Keywords: event notifyupdate update Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

After updating the date in the input text field, the DatePicker gets updated automatically, re-rendering the date control.

When using the DatePicker control as a DateTimePicker (i.e. extending it with a time section underneath the date section), an event notifying this update to inheriting controls would make life a lot easier : it will be possible to re-render the time controls as well.



_updateDatepicker: function(inst) { ...



/* Notify update of datepicker. */

_notifyUpdate: function(inst) {

var onNotifyUpdate = this._get(inst, 'onNotifyUpdate');

if (onNotifyUpdate)




This could then be used in the add-on as follows :


var tp = new Timepicker();


onNotifyUpdate: function (inst) {


if ($.isFunction(o['onNotifyUpdate'])) o.onNotifyUpdate(inst);

Datepicker already calls three different methods when this happens: _setDateFromField(), _updateAlternate(), and _updateDatepicker(). Just pick the most appropriate one and proxy it.
