Javascript Localization of datepicker

Hi there,
I want to localize the datepicker control.

I noticed that people suggesting regional property.  I tried
            dateFormat : 'yy-mm-dd',
           regional: 'fr',
        }).datepicker("setDate", new Date());

Open in new window

But it does not give the localized values.  How should I correct it.

            dateFormat : 'yy-mm-dd',
        }).datepicker("setDate", new Date());

     var fromDateInput = document.createElement("input");
        fromDateInput.maxLength = "10"; = "80px"; = "FromDatePickerInputID";
        fromDateInput.type = "text";

Open in new window

First of all you need to add the source for the datepicker-fr.js:
<script src="datepicker-fr.js"></script>

Open in new window

Then you need to use this syntax:
$( "#FromDatePickerInputID" ).datepicker( $.datepicker.regional[ "fr" ] );

Open in new window
