Description

For starters, i'm brand new to bug tracking here. i did search for this issue, but didn't really expect to find any hits.

Since Datepicker doesn't provide access to a UI-themed button trigger, i found a workaround for it:
http://www.somethinghitme.com/2010/10/06/use-built-in-jquery-ui-icon-with-datepicker/
(yes, my comment at the bottom)

The workaround is fine. The datepickers are set up, and in most cases work well. However, when i tried using a range setup as shown in the demos, selecting a date on one input took the UI off the other input's trigger button.

Fiddle:
http://jsfiddle.net/HJs7G/1/

The commented lines of JS in the "onSelect" callbacks is how i've worked around the problem in the workaround.

i get the sense that the "onSelect" callback which changes the sibling datepicker's option is actually destroying & re-creating the sibling with the new option. Is this how it works for all option update calls? If so, i guess the workaround's workaround is my only option since the button is "buttonized" after the datepicker. However, it seems by now there would be an option to provide a UI-themed trigger button from the datepicker's options.</whine>

Hi, and thanks for contributing! Unfortunately, the bug tracker isn't the place for posting questions about using jquery-ui. I suggest you start you search in http://forum.jquery.com/ or on stackoverflow or IRC to see if someone could help you out. If you still believe after doing all that, that you have a legit bug, please come back and post it. Until then, I'm closing this as "not a bug".
