Issue with Jquery UI Datepicker in Inline Table

Issue with Jquery UI Datepicker in Inline Table

arunjaykrishnanarunjaykrishnan Posts: 8Questions: 2Answers: 0

We have a requirement to show Jquery UI Datepicker in Datatable Editor Inline mode.
The issue I am facing is when I click on the calendar to select a date, the field becomes readonly and the jquery datepicker complains that field does not exist.
I was using the example: https://editor.datatables.net/examples/dates/jqueryui.html as reference.
Please help.

    If I enable inline editing on that example, which you can do by entering:

        $('#example').on( 'click', 'tbody td', function (e) {
            editor.inline( this );
        } );
    

    into your browser's console, the jQuery UI date picker appears to work okay.

    Could you confirm if it does for you or not in that example please?

    The inline editor is working but the issue is that for jquery ui picker, the field disappears as soon I try to select a date from calendar. I can enter a date in the text, but the moment I mouse over to the calendar to change the date, the text field in the date disappears.

    Related comment to the one below. How can I prevent the inline editor from closing for a particular field. Say I was this datepikcer to be editable once I click and remain editable even when I mouse out. I can the handle the close of the field on close of the calendar handler function.

    That doesn't appear to happen for me in the example you linked to with the code I posted above. I can click a date in the calender no problem. Is that not the case for you? What browser are you using?

    Allen,
    Regret the delay in response.
    What I want is a customized date picker with few days highlighted. I tried to use a custom field for the same calling the date picker in the set method. but no luck.

    e.g.:
    $("datepicker").datepicker({
    beforeShowDay : highlightdays,
    beforeShow: beforeShowFunction,
    showOtherMonths : false,
    numberOfMonths : 1,
    dateFormat : "ddMyy",
    });

    Can some one please help?
    We are stuck with this issue for over a month.
    We have purchased the full version of editor datatable as well.
