jQuery Datepicker create event does not work?

I would like to access the create call back function. So far no luck. It appears the function is not getting executed. Any ideas where I may be going wrong?

        create: function(){ alert('created!'); }

From my brief reading on the subject, it seems that the create event is available to things that are created via the widget factory.

I don’t think that the datepicker uses the widget factory yet.

Aha! Confirmation from the author of datepicker

Future development includes:

Refactor the code to use the widget factor and follow the jQuery UI API

Thanks Paul.

The same development page from the author does also link through to a refactored development version of datepicker, which uses the widget factory.
