Topic: Better date inputs for Rails
I recently spent an entire Saturday afternoon trying to get a replacement datebox for the awful one that comes with Rails. I wanted to use one that handles both Dates and DateTimes so I tried datebocks and a couple others. I continued to run into integration issues. It seems these plugins don't always "plug in" nice and easy. I end up researching and trying to debug all sorts of issues that appear in the console. After about 30 to 45 minutes I just abandon whatever the plugin is that's giving me the fuss. I don't have the time to debug everything I want to make use of.
You must use the "hyphen_ampm" version.
Go to the Popup Calendars tab. Use the "With time" popup and select a date and a time. For me, this much works. After selecting a date/time, try modifying the result to a new date/time. I try clicking on the icon and get no result. Once I delete the time portion from the input field, the popup is again responsive when I click the icon.
For example, I selected "2007-08-03 5:30 PM". After selecting--or even hand entering this date for that matter--I can click my heart out on the calendar icon with no popup response.
Can anyone else reproduce this issue?
Thanks. I'd really like to validate this issue so that it can be resolved.
