jquery ui datepicker button image on hover

Hi experts,

I'm using the jquery ui datepicker.

I have an example that uses an icon trigger similar to this example:
http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/#icon-trigger

This is my fiddle for my example

http://jsfiddle.net/dcxd61vw/

I have 2 calendar image icons i'm using.

I have a blue calendar icon that looks like this:
This is the url to the image: https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5703/21213071831_2337f61ccd_o.png

blue calendar icon

I have a green calendar icon that looks like this:
This is the url to the image: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/756/20584041683_7e6c1fcf6d_o.png

I have a green calendar icon that looks like this:
So right now in my fiddle above when my page launches the blue calendar icon is displayed.

But what I want is when I hover my mouse cursor over the calendar icon it should switch to use the green calendar icon.

Anyone know how to set a on hover image for the buttonimage of the datepicker?

Looking at your fiddle I guess you're hoping for a CSS solution. I can't give you one, I did find this trick but couldn't get it to work and it messes up the image placement (the block style).

So if you're ok with a JS solution (actually seeing this is only posted in jQuery maybe this is not too bad), try this:
$(".ui-datepicker-trigger").hover(function(){
    $(this).attr('src', 'https://farm1.staticflickr.com/756/20584041683_7e6c1fcf6d_o.png');
},function(){
    $(this).attr('src', 'https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5703/21213071831_2337f61ccd_o.png');
});

Open in new window
