Subject Re: [jira] Created: (TRINIDAD-1621) dateSelection does select wrong date when selecting date with daylight-saving time when current date has no daylight-saving time
Date Thu, 29 Oct 2009 22:35:14 GMT
Hi Mike,

Could you run the demo for chooseDate or inputDate, and paste the html 
source for the 2 Oct 2009 link?

I ran the choosedate demo with your specified scenario, i.e.
-  windows timezone = Europe/Berlin
- current date=29 Oct 2009
- trinidad.config xml has  time-zone param = Europe/Berlin

I get the following HTML source for the 2 Oct 2009 link:
   return _calsd('idp1',1254434400000, 120)

This does not match the values you mentioned. I also tried selecting 2 
Oct 2009, and 2 Oct 2009 is populated into the input field, which I 
would expect.

selecting 02.10.2009 leads to 1251842400000 seconds).  The _getLocaleTimeZoneDifference2 evaluates
a difference of 1 hour because the selected date is in daylight-saving time, actual date is
not. This gets calculated to the new date value which will be reduced to the midnight time
and is after calling _dfGetMidnight set to 1251756000000 seonds. But this itself represents
the 01.10.2009.

value written into the datefield which i have selected, not the value adjusted to the actual
server time-zone?
