    To improve page rendering performance on a page with alot of date/time input fields, I'm trying to dynamically replace standard input textboxes with raddate/timepickers as the textboxes are selected, however I'm having trouble setting the text inside the date/time pickers.  As soon as the picker gets focus it replaces the value in its textbox with whatever the selected datetime is.  I need the value to "stick" when the picker gets focus, even if it is not valid.

    Here's the code I'm using right now:

    <input type="text" onfocus="onTimeInputFocus(this);"/> 
    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript"
                    var replacedElement = null
                    function onTimeInputFocus(input) 
                        timepicker = getNinjaTimePickerObject(); 
                        timepickerEl = getNinjaTimePickerElement(); 
                        if ( replacedElement ) 
                            replacedElement.value = timepicker.get_textBox().value; 
                            timepickerEl.parentNode.replaceChild(replacedElement, timepickerEl); 
                        replacedElement = input.parentNode.replaceChild(timepickerEl, input); 
                        timepicker.get_textBox().value = replacedElement.value; 
                        //setTimeout( "timepicker.get_textBox().focus();", 100 ); 
                    function getNinjaTimePickerElement() 
                        return document.getElementById("<%= NinjaTimePicker.ClientID %>"  + "_wrapper"); 
                    function getNinjaTimePickerObject() 
                        return $find("<%= NinjaTimePicker.ClientID %>"); 

    I know I can always parse the datetime represented in the textbox and then call set_selectedDate() on the picker, but I need to be able to set values with invalid formats as well, and it would be nice if I could rely on the parsing mechanism inside the picker.
