> but what if the date is shown in a label instead of a textbox (don't know if that is possible right now)?
That's a good point. You feel like playing with it a bit? Output should work fine, it's the interpreting that is tricky to maintain, as those localized strings are hardly accessible in Java.
> concering localization: the YUI datepicker itself can (somehow) easily be localized. you just have to set some properties. this has to be done per YUI datepicker instance. an example for a german and japanese localization can be found at the YUI calendar website.
Yeah. Localization should be doable, and I think/ hope I set it up so that it can relatively easily be done. The problem is that we need people to support the languages, and as you can learn from e.g. jscalendar, this is hard to achieve, so you'll probably end up supporting just a couple of languages well, a couple half-baked and no support for most. Doesn't have to be that much of a problem though. You're welcome to start with this and supply a patch that works for German.
> anyway, if you don't feel the need for it, i'll not take anymore of your precious time. i'm just glad the zeropadding is fixed (i only found the bug because of some german locale testing). thx for that.
Hey no problem. Anything that makes this component close to perfect is welcome Thanks for helping.
