Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1602) Android birthday field not working
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2012 17:39:03 GMT


Braden Shepherdson commented on CB-1602:

I can't seem to get anything on Android to show me a birthday. It's a field in Gmail contacts
and on Google+, but neither of those fields seems to be shown on Android even when it's set
in Gmail or G+. I can't see or edit the field on Android in the 2.3.3 emulator, 4.0.3 emulator
or Galaxy Nexus running 4.1.2.

I'm not even sure whether this is a problem with Cordova properly saving the birthday value,
or a problem with retrieving it from the database, because I can't convince anything to show
me when the birthday is set.

Given how much of a second-class citizen birthdays appear to be on Android, I'm lowering this
to Minor and unassigning it from myself. I've already invested more time than I would like
into trying to convince Android to treat birthdays with respect.

> I'm trying to save/update a birthday field on my android device. It does work with a
timestamp (int) on iOS. However on android, I'll always get the current (today) date to be
saved on my device.
> I tried :
> - int timestamp
> - javascript Date
> - string YYYY-MM-DD (what is returned on read().)
