copy/paste broken in datepicker attached to input field

Hi guys,

I've come across a small problem using the datepicker from jquery-ui. Currently using 1.8.2.

When attaching a datepicker to an input elements as below, the key

bindings for copy and paste seem to be lost.



$('.datepicker').datepicker({ changeMonth: true, changeYear: true,

dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy' });


<input class="datepicker" type="text" name="mydate"


I suspect that this is because the use of keyboard shortcuts that are

attached to the datepicker. Is there a way to via configuration

disable the keyboard shortcuts? Or any other work around for this


(This seems to have been reported a few years back by nathan.maves


Thanks in advance,
