JQuery Popup Calendar

Hi I need to have the date formatted and written to the input field in UK format but not sure how to do this in JQuery.  The following must be wrong because it isn't putting the date in UK format so could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

$(document).ready(function() {

$('#Date').datepicker({
                  onSelect: function(dateText, inst) {
                        var s = dateText.split("/");
                        $("#$YEAR$").val(s[2]);
                        $("#$DAY$").val(s[1]);
                        $("#$MONTH$").val(s[0]);
                        var ukDate = s[1]+s[0]+s[2];
                        //alert("UK Date is "+ukDate);
                        //$("#Date").val(ukDate);
                        dateFormat: 'dd-mm-yy';
                  }
            });
$('a[rel*=lightbox]').lightBox(); // Select all links that contains lightbox in the attribute rel

});

Here you go: http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Datepicker look at the Localization section. This is what you want:

Localization
Datepicker provides support for localizing its content to cater for different languages and date formats. Each localization is contained within its own file with the language code appended to the name, e.g. jquery.ui.datepicker-fr.js for French. The desired localization file should be include after the main datepicker code. They add their settings to the set of available localizations and automatically apply them as defaults for all instances.

The $.datepicker.regional attribute holds an array of localizations, indexed by language code, with '' referring to the default (English). Each entry is an object with the following attributes: closeText, prevText, nextText, currentText, monthNames, monthNamesShort, dayNames, dayNamesShort, dayNamesMin, weekHeader, dateFormat, firstDay, isRTL, showMonthAfterYear, and yearSuffix.

Try the attached code:
$("#Date").datepicker()
$("#Date").datepicker('option', {dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy'});
