If you’re here, that’s probably because you just put a datepicker into a bootstrap modal, but realised that the Year dropdown isn’t working properly, and when you click it, nothing appears to happen.

Luckily, it’s quite easy to fix. After initialising your element with

$('#mytextbox').datepicker({//options here});

All that is required is to paste this line of code, which does something regarding javascript’s dom focus :

$.fn.modal.Constructor.prototype.enforceFocus = function() {}

Job done! You can get back on with your work now! 🙂
