DatePicker that stays open, DropDownList can't get proper focus


I have a site that has both a DropDownList and a DatePicker control.
The DatePicker is configured to always stay open (in the "Close" event, "args.cancel" is set to "true"):

Now the problem is that when I try to input something in the DropDownList, the DatePicker loses and immediately gains focus again, which in turn leads to the DropDownList losing focus and thus cancelling the input and the filtering.
The text can be entered one letter at a time but the filtering does not start.
Directly selecting an element works fine.

I guess I could just let the DatePicker close normally, then this problem would not arise. However, for this site it is more beneficial for the user when the DatePicker stays open.

Is there any workaround for this problem?

Kind regards
