Subject [Cocoon Wiki] Update of "Repository/DateTime" by JCKermagoret
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2005 17:25:53 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cocoon Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by JCKermagoret:

New page:
DateTime widget

= Intent =
A widget that permits you to select a date and a time too, in the same container.

= Motivation =
There is a date widget, from mattkruse lib. It's a very useful one, but there is a lack of
time support to select a schedule.

There are other solutions, like the one from, but it's LGPL, not ASL.

So, I added time support to the mattkruse calendar widget.

= Feature =
The date time widget may be customized a little :
 * enable/disable the behavior
 * seconds and minutes may be incremented by steps

It looks like this :


= Implementation =

The CP_tmpReturnFunction(y,m,d) function has been redesigned in function CP_tmpReturnFunction(y,m,d,hh,mm,ss)
to manage time information.

2 functions have been written :
 * one to update the links in the calendar view
 * one to display the dropdowns

A few lines have been added too to manage initialization.

== Patch ==
The patch is available here :
I first need to discover how to make a patch with Eclipse :-)

= Usage =
In form definition, a date field is declared, and the display format wanted too.

<fd:field id="dtstart">
    <fd:datatype base="date">
            <fd:pattern>dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss</fd:pattern>

To avoid problem while manipulating dates between different applications, I use standart date
time formats for storage. So, in the binding file, I have the following convertor :

<fb:value id="dtstart" path="dtstart">
    <fd:convertor datatype="date" type="formatting" variant="datetime">

To conclude, the mattkruse lib is initialized :
<script type="text/javascript" src="resources/forms/mattkruse-lib/mattkruse-lib.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="resources/forms/mattkruse-lib/CalendarPopup.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    // Setup calendar
    var forms_calendar = CalendarPopup(175,180);
    // New definition to display DateTimeDropdowns
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="resources/forms/css/forms-calendar.css"/>

= More information =

You may have help on cocoon or bluexml mailing lists.
