[javascript] prevent iphone default keyboard when focusing an <input>

this is how i'm trying

<script type="text/javascript">

but the input stills 'launching' iphone's keyboard

ps: i want to do this because i'm using datepicker plugin for date

This question is related to javascript jquery iphone keyboard

The answer is

By adding the attribute readonly (or readonly="readonly") to the input field you should prevent anyone typing anything in it, but still be able to launch a click event on it.

This is also usefull in non-mobile devices as you use a date/time picker
