I'm trying to get my datepicker to open when the field has focus.  This is relatively easy to do, but now when you click the calendar next to the field to open it up manually, it closes!  Any ideas?  Script below:

Hello Gary,

 
You can achieve your goal using the latest official release of KendoUI.

I updated my jsfiddle to use the latest version http://jsfiddle.net/VgcL7/6/ 

This did not fix the issue (jsFiddle isn't loading some of the css for some reason, but you can still see the issue).  If the field doesn't already have focus and you click on the select button, the datepicker opens and closes.

Hello Gary,

 
I was able to observe the issue. In order to achieve your goal you will need to override the click event of the toggle button:

$(document).ready(function() {
    kendo.ui.DatePicker.prototype._click = function() {
        var that = this,
            element = that.element;
 
        that.dateView.toggle();
  
        if (element[0] !== document.activeElement) {
            element.focus();
        }            
    }
         
    $(".ctlDatePicker").kendoDatePicker();
 
    $(".ctlDatePicker").bind("focus", function() {
        $(this).data("kendoDatePicker").open();
    });
});‚Äč
The fix will be included in the next internal build. Please note that the internal builds are available only to paid customers.

Much easier is to just use the open and close event of the datepicker.
01.$('#id').kendoDatePicker({
02.    open: function(e) {
03.        $('#id').data('kendoDatePicker').options.opened = true;
04.    },
05.    close: function(e){
06.        $('#id').data('kendoDatePicker').options.opened = false;
07.    }
08.});
09.$('#id').focus(function(e){
10.    var obj = $(this).data('kendoDatePicker');
11.    if (typeof(obj.options.opened) == 'undefined' || !obj.options.opened){
12.        obj.open();
13.    }
14.})

I'm using Kendo UI + Angular. The datepicker is not opening on focus. Do I have to setup something else? Is there an option to auto open on focus? Thanks

Hi Augusto,

The Kendo UI DatePicker doesn't expose a focus event for its input element, but you can use a standard ng-focus attribute to achieve the desired behavior.

<input kendo-date-picker="myPicker" ng-focus="openPicker()" />
$scope.openPicker = function() {
  $scope.myPicker.open();
}



Hope this helps.

Nice! I'm starting to get the idea about how to use Kendo with Angular. Following your suggestion, I ended up using something like:

ng-click="myPicker.open()".

 It was actually pretty simple! :) Thanks for your help!
