z3c.form date and datetime widgets

Project description

Various z3c.form date and datetime widgets

Improved datetime widgets for z3c.form

When the emphasis of the application you are designing is on speed and speed alone, then the single field pattern might be your friend. It’s particularly useful for data entry applications in which the person who has to enter the data will have to use the same input form time and time again.

The collective.z3cform.datetimewidget library provides a form framework and widgets. This document ensures that we implement a widget for Date and Datetime field defined in zope.schema. Take a look at the different widget doctest files for more information about the widgets.

1.2.9 (2020-01-28)

Bug fixes:

  • Removed compiled .mo files from repository. I will create a new release, which should still contain those, including the missing Dutch .mo file. [maurits]

1.2.8 (2017-09-08)

Bug fixes:

  • Prevent invalid data to be silently accepted. [bogdangi]

1.2.7 (2015-04-29)

  • Add dutch translations [maartenkling]
  • Fix postback of am/pm value. [davisagli]

1.2.6 (2014-01-27)

  • Determine whether to show am/pm based on the current locale’s time format. [davisagli]

1.2.5 (2013-07-31)

  • Fix package distribution. [hvelarde]

1.2.4 (2013-07-31)

  • Make Date widget configurable by using the min/max field properties or the default values stored in portal’s site properties. [hvelarde]

1.2.3 (2013-03-04)

  • Removed hard-coded styling for calendar popup icon. Leave this to the dateinput.css from, which was being applied anyway. [smcmahon]

1.2.2 (2013-01-13)

1.2.1 (2012-10-10)

  • Make sure DOM is ready before activating the dateinput jQuery plugin. This was causing Internet Explorer 7 to fail. [rafaelbco]

1.2.0 (2012-06-15)

  • Fix day names. Also respect the first day of the week from the current locale. This fixes [davisagli]
  • Use viewpagetemplatefile from zope.browserpage. This breaks compatibility with Zope < 2.13 and Plone < 4.1 in order to minimize dependencies. [hannosch]

1.1.1 (2011-09-24)

  • Fix conditional for the GS profile. [davisagli]

1.1 (2011-09-12)

  • Fix validation errors so they are caught and correctly reported by z3c.form. [davisagli]
  • Added a GS profile (conditionally loaded in configure.zcml if generic setup is installed) to enable the css & js support for dateinput popup. [smcmahon]
  • Made js for dateinput popup check for jQuery().dateinput before invoking it. Changed from $ to jQuery. [smcmahon]
  • IE was baulking on a missing closing parenthesis. [danjacka]

1.0.5 (2011-06-28)

  • Change more $ to jQuery. [danjacka]
  • Fix month selection issue with the date input widget. Previously, due to the leading zero, months < 10 weren’t being selected when picking a date on the calendar widget. [davidjb]
  • Fix date offset issue for default dates on the jQuery date input widget. Providing the default value as a JavaScript Date(yyyy, mm, dd) required months to be in the range of 0 to 11 but outputting as Date(“yyyy/mm/dd”) works as expected. [davidjb]
  • Fix issue with jQuery date input widget not being displayed when an incomplete date was entered. [davidjb]
  • Avoid error fetching widget values when no year or day was entered. [davisagli]
  • Made js for dateinput popup check for jQuery().dateinput before invoking it. Changed from $ to jQuery. [smcmahon]
