Disabling Dates in Dynarch Calendar

Disabling Dates in Dynarch Calendar

(OP)
This is a follow to this thread:
thread216-1746009: Disabling dates in Dynarch Calendar

I've been able to disable dates in the calendar using the code listed in the thread above, until recently.
Now, the dates are disabled but you aren't able to pick a date in the current month without first moving back or forth a month, then it works fine.
Here is a link to the calendar:
http://jimsgotweb.com/nfkb

I've also added this code to the function showCalendar(id, dateFormat)

CODE -->

calendar.setDisabledHandler(disallowDate); 

Any ideas as to what is causing this problem?
Thanks,
Jim

RE: Disabling Dates in Dynarch Calendar

(OP)
Here is the complete calendar_function.js
I've highlighted my added code in red.
Again, if you open the calendar on this page:
jimsgotweb.com/nfkb
You'll see that the dates are disabled correctly. But you can't choose other dates without first moving ahead or back a month first. Then it works fine.
Can someone help me?

RE: Disabling Dates in Dynarch Calendar

(OP)
Here is the documentation for the calendar. If someone can look at how to disable dates and help me, I'd really appreciate it. http://www.dynarch.com/jscal/

Thanks!
Jim

RE: Disabling Dates in Dynarch Calendar

(OP)
Okay, so anyone following this thread, here is how the problem was solved. Thanks to Vasilyev Evgeny on upwork.com here is the code added to the calendar_function.js file that enables me to disable certain dates from being chosen.

CODE --> Javascript

var DISABLED_DATES = {

	20151214: true,
	20151215: true,
	20151216: true,
	20151217: true,
	20151218: true,
	20160210: true
};

 
function disallowDate(date) {
  var year = date.getFullYear();
  var month = date.getMonth() + 1;
  var day = date.getDate(); 
  var calendarDate = year*10000 + month*100 + day;  
  return calendarDate in DISABLED_DATES; 
} 
And code added before calendar.create()

CODE -->

calendar.setDisabledHandler(disallowDate);
