DatePicker does not use the correct ownerDocument (does not support multiple windows)

This issue came up here

It was however closed as saying most issues are fixed. However the datepicker control frequently decides to request a specific id (e.g. $(id)) without specifying a document. This makes the datepicker unusable on a 2nd window.

I need this fixed and will happily provide a patch if I can get some feedback on the correct fix for this.

why does it capture the id instead of inst? is it to stop memory leaks ( a reference from the function capture to the element).

One fix would be to pass the ownerDocument from in each of the event handles. what do people think about that?

I only looked at a few of the methods where id is being passed around, but it looks like they all just do $(id) right away. So it should be safe to just pass the DOMElement instead of the id. You'll need to check if id is being used anywhere else in those functions though.

When #6228 is fixed this problem will just naturally go away. But if you send a PR fixing all of the queries now, we'd accept that.

Replying to [comment:3 lukepage]:

patch added here

@lukepage Could you please create a test case that shows this issue. I made one here and it looks like your patch isn't handling for that.

yes 2 issues here.. one was you were referencing the https version so it wasn't included.

The 2nd was that I tested it inside my application which wraps jquery ui a bit and appends it to the right thing.. jqueryUI appends the datepicker to the current window rather than the window with the control in it. I will have a look to see if I can patch that bit as well.

It looks like a much bigger patch to fix the issue completely rather than patch the small area that is effecting my usage of the datepicker. Will have to think whether it is worth patching this or contributing a fix for #6228
