button that triggers date picker instead of clicking the insert field?

Hi all,
I succesfully added a date picker to my form.
The date picker appears when I click inside the input field.
But this is a bit counter-intuitive since the user cannot see that there is a date picker until he clicks the input field.
So, is there a way to add a button/image that when clicked would trigger the date picker and once the user select the date the date will be inserted in the input field?
What about something

It looks like you could use an image or div with an onclick="$( "#inputID" ).datepicker('show');"

See complete documentation on how to work with the datepicker here:
