Prevent datepicker from putting focus on input control

I'm using latest jquery ui library, but couldn't find a way to stop datepicker from putting focus on input element when it opens or when you change month/year. As a workaround I removed the code below, but this is obviously not the way to go. Could you add an additional setting to datepicker so that we can decide whether focus should be put on the input element?

This is the code that would need to be parameterized:

if (":visible") && !":disabled")) {



#6694 - don't focus the input if it's already focused

this breaks the change event in IE

if (inst === $.datepicker._curInst && $.datepicker._datepickerShowing && inst.input &&":visible") && !":disabled") && inst.input[0] !== document.activeElement) {

Why are you trying to do this? If you don't want focus on an input, you should probably be using the inline datepicker.
