Not sure if this is the right place to be asking this but I've run into an issue on our SS3 beta two test site with DateField.

In 2.4 I can do the following to get a jquery UI popup for my datefield:

$datefield = new DateField('FeatureEndDate', "Feature ends");
$datefield->setConfig('showcalendar',true);
$fields->push($datefield );

then in the template
$dataFieldByName(FeatureEndDate).FieldHolder

It seems all the requisite js + css is getting loaded with DateField.js, jquery-ui.js, jquery.js, jquery-ui.css etc all being there. If I copy DateField.js and execute it in chrome's console I get the following error:

Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'datepicker'
$.fn.extend.ssDatepicker
jQuery.extend.eachjquery.js:660
jQuery.fn.jQuery.eachjquery.js:271
$.fn.extend.ssDatepicker
(anonymous function)
jQuery.event.dispatchjquery.js:3332
jQuery.event.add.elemData.handle.eventHandle

But other than that I'm not getting other errors on load - can someone help me to debug this a bit further?

cheers

I seem to have sorted this - it appears to have been a requirements order problem with jquery being included too late perhaps - its hard to tell as the include order is tricky to deal with...
