Please explain what you're trying to accomplish and how this is better than the current DateTextBox?.

During a set date in the textbox when case of an open calendar, automatically select the date in the calendar. Similar to jQuery UI Datepicker opportunities.

Please activate this enhancement starting with the new version 1.8.4

I think if you type in a date and then open the dropdown it already selects that date. I guess you want it to select the date as the user is type? This enhancement doesn't seem very useful.

Then the choice of the year to become more exhausting. I wish that the date is automatically set in the calendar when you opened the dropdown, while the user types in the textbox. This enhancement very useful.

Summary: Automatic selection of the date on the calendar when you enter a date in the field.DateTextBox: reflect changes to <input> to Calendar while dropdown open

I wouldn't use the word exhausting. If for example:

  1. open the drop down
  2. change the date from 1/1/2000 to 1/1/1900

Then to reflect the change from 2000 --> 1900 into the calendar, you need to close and reopen the drop down. I suppose it would be marginally nicer if you didn't need to do that, but not sure if it's worth the effort in dijit.
