Date Field inside Repeater field - Missing functionality?

Recommended Posts

I placed a simple "Start Date" - Date Field inside a repeater. I set the options of this date field so that the jQuery UI Datepicker is used when clicking on the calendar icon next to the field. 

When editing my template this calendar icon is missing. So the datepicker never opens. I can however change the functionality of the field so that the datepicker opens when the field is focused. This works fine. When displaying the same field on the template outside of the repeater field though, the calendar icon is displayed correctly and works as expected.

Is this a normal behaviour?

The JS is missing a call to initialise the datepicker when a field is reloaded (e.g. when an ajax-loaded Repeater item is opened). You could open a GitHub issue if you like.

InputfieldDatetime.js needs something like this added:

$(document).on('reloaded', '.InputfieldDatetime', function() {
	var $input = $(this).find('input.InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker:not(.InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker3):not(.initDatepicker)');
	if($input.length) InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($input);
