I'm not positioning these elements in my code correctly. What do I need to change?

This works:

<script>
        $(function() {
            $("#datepicker").datepicker({'onSelect':function(dateText){
                      if( dateText.match(/\d\d\/\d\d\/\d\d\d\d/) )
                      {
                           $(this).css({"color":"#000000"});
                       }
                      else
                      {
                           $(this).css({"color":"#CCCCCC"});
                       }

                }});
        });
    </script>

                                          

Open in new window


This does not:

 <script>
        $(function() {
            $("#datepicker").datepicker({'onSelect':function(dateText){
                      if( dateText.match(/\d\d\d\d-\d\d\-\d\d/) )
                      {
                           $(this).css({"color":"#000000"});
                       }
                      else
                      {
                           $(this).css({"color":"#CCCCCC"});
                       }
                }		
			{dateFormat:"yyyy-mm-dd"}});
        });
    </script>

Open in new window


The code that works is exactly what I need with the exception of the date format. I'd like to include that, but every time I try, the script fails. I'm confident that there's something wrong with the placement of the additional code (dateFormat), but I don't know what.

Can you help a brother out?

How about this?
$(function() {
            $("#datepicker").datepicker({'onSelect':function(dateText){
                      if( dateText.match(/\d\d\d\d-\d\d\-\d\d/) )
                      {
                           $(this).css({"color":"#000000"});
                       }
                      else
                      {
                           $(this).css({"color":"#CCCCCC"});
                       }
                },		
			dateFormat:"yyyy-mm-dd"});
        });
