Subject [jira] Updated: (ADFFACES-91) Allow user to control the amount of years shown in the drop-down of date picker
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 20:22:14 GMT
     [ ]

Pierre-Luc Archambault updated ADFFACES-91:

    Attachment: trunk_patch91.patch

Added a new attribute that allows the user to specify the visibleYearCount in BOTH chooseDate
AND inputDate.

If this attribute is used, the value entered by the user will override the constant that was
used to set the range of the selectable year from the dropdown.

As it is the case with both other patches provided earlier concerning the date picker, this
patch doesn't include others attributes from the others patches, so pay attention when merging
all the three together.

> Currently, date picker grant a range of 29 years or so in its drop-down, 14 years before,
current year and 14 years after, meaning that you can go back at most 14 years before having
to choose "Before XXXX". For old date like birthdate, this can be irritating for the user.
For example, someone born around 1940 would have to choose:
> Before 1992
> Before 1977
> Before 1962
> Before 1947
> 1940
> Choosing 5 times from the drop-down makes it easier to just type the year manually. Adding
an available date range property to date picker and select input date would help developer
tweak that behavior to be able to increase the amount of years shown in the drop-down, and
thus improve the high-end user experience with birthdate fields.
