No easy/good way to have an inline datepicker WITH a textbox

There's no easy/good way to have a datepicker that appears inline (as if you would say $('#someDiv').datepicker()) AND also have a textbox that controls the date as if you said $('#someInput').datepicker().

altField is close but doesn't quite cut it.

When you say $('#someDiv').datepicker({ altField:'#someInput' }), the problem is that typing a date into the #someInput textbox doesn't update the date.

I think a good solution would be to be able to say:


inline: '#someDiv'


(The new inline option would default to null, which means "auto", based on if the element is an input or a div/span, like it does currently.)

Just create an inline datepicker and manually wire the text field to it. It's only a few lines of code...
