View Full Version : [Solved] jQuery DatePicker month navigation bug

4 Jun 2007, 6:41 AM
To reproduce:

Open your browser (repro'd in both IE7 and Fx2)
Browse to the XML Form example in this site's public documentation (1.0.1a or 1.1 beta 1)
Change the script library to jQuery
Open the date picker from the DOB field
Click the prev or next arrow on the top-left or top-right (respectively) of the date picker pop-up window, twice (basically, try to go back or advance two months)

The result is that the second click doesn't cause the month to change, when it should. Clicking the opposite arrow works once, with subsequent clicks then also failing. However, Ctrl-Right/Left always works fine.

This is a known bug that has been logged at the jQuery site and will be fixed in their next release.

Good to hear. I thought that might be the case, but since I'm now using the jQuery 1.1.3a test release from just a couple weeks ago and still get the bug I figured I'd better make sure.

IGx89 - this does not sound good. I was certainly hoping that jQuery 1.1.3 would address this problem!

Could you please add your comments to the following thread on the jQuery mailing list - it might help the developers to raise the priority or identify the issue:

Strange, now I can't reproduce the bug; most have been some bad caching or something. All's good now :)
