I have a datagrid allowing the user to add events to an event page.

On it, I have 2 date fields so they can specify a start and end date. These fields do not show the date picker unless I comment out a line from DateField.js in Sapphire/javascript (line 12 - if(!config.showcalendar) return;).

Is there anyway to get the date picker to show without tampering with the core?

class Event extends DataObject{
	public static $db = array(
		'Title' => 'Varchar(255)',
  		'StartDate' => 'Date',
  		'EndDate' => 'Date',
  		'Summary' => 'Text',
  		'Content' => 'HTMLText'

 	static $has_one = array( 
		'WhatsOnCategory' => 'WhatsOnCategory',
		'EventImage' => 'Image'

 	public static $summary_fields = array(
  		'Title' => 'Title'
 	public static $default_sort='StartDate';

 	public function getCMSFields() {
	  	return new FieldList(
	   		new TextField('Title', 'Title'),
	   		new DateField('StartDate', 'StartDate'),
	   		new DateField('EndDate', 'EndDate'),
	   		new TextField('Summary', 'Summary'),
	   		new HTMLEditorField('Content', 'Content'),
	   		new UploadField('EventImage','Image')

public function getCMSFields() {
	$fields = array();

	$fields[] = new TextField('Title', 'Title');
	$fields['StartDate'] = new DateField('StartDate', 'StartDate');
	$fields['StartDate']->setConfig('showcalendar', true);
	$fields['EndDate'] = new DateField('EndDate', 'EndDate');
	$fields['EndDate']->setConfig('showcalendar', true);
	$fields[] = new TextField('Summary', 'Summary');
	$fields[] = new HTMLEditorField('Content', 'Content');
	$fields[] = new UploadField('EventImage','Image');

	return new FieldList($fields);
