I have a birthday calendar script that works well and I'd like to be able to pass a tabindex to it. The original function is:

Code:
function DateInput(DateName, Required, DateFormat, DefaultDate) {
So I changed it to:

Code:
function DateInput(DateName, Required, DateFormat, DefaultDate, TabIndex)
The original call is:

PHP Code:
<script>DateInput('birthday', false, 'YYYY-MM-DD', '<?php echo $f_addClientDemo["birthday"];?>')</script>
I tried changing it to this but it's not working:

PHP Code:
<script>DateInput('birthday', false, 'YYYY-MM-DD', '<?php echo $f_addClientDemo["birthday"];?>', '9')</script>
Here's the place in the function that writes the code - original:

Code:
writeln('<input' + InitialStatus + ' class="calendarDateInput" type="text" id="' + DateName + '_Year_ID" size="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad.length') + '" maxlength="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad.length') + '" title="Year" value="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad') + '" onKeyPress="return YearDigitsOnly(window.event)" onKeyUp="' + DateName + '_Object.checkYear(this)" onBlur="' + DateName + '_Object.fixYear(this)">');

And after I added the variable:

Code:
writeln('<input tabindex="' + TabIndex + '"' + InitialStatus + ' class="calendarDateInput" type="text" id="' + DateName + '_Year_ID" size="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad.length') + '" maxlength="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad.length') + '" title="Year" value="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad') + '" onKeyPress="return YearDigitsOnly(window.event)" onKeyUp="' + DateName + '_Object.checkYear(this)" onBlur="' + DateName + '_Object.fixYear(this)">');
I can hardcode the tabindex like below and it works but obviously that's not a good solution:

Code:
writeln('<input tabindex="9"' + InitialStatus + ' class="calendarDateInput" type="text" id="' + DateName + '_Year_ID" size="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad.length') + '" maxlength="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad.length') + '" title="Year" value="' + eval(DateName + '_Object.picked.yearPad') + '" onKeyPress="return YearDigitsOnly(window.event)" onKeyUp="' + DateName + '_Object.checkYear(this)" onBlur="' + DateName + '_Object.fixYear(this)">');
If you need the entire script it's here:
