The following code finds all date labels on the screen and attaches calendars to the fields immediately to the right of them.

var labels = find("Date:"); for (var i = 0; i < labels.length; i++) { var label = labels[i]; var elem = getRight(label); if (elem != null && elem.tagName == "INPUT") { attachCalendar(, "MM/DD/YY"); } }
