  • Resolved rwilki


    Hi – awesome plugin (vsn 1.5.2) !!!! It is so powerful even if it’s tricky to customize. I love it.

    I just discovered that I can use a date field rather than a text line in my forms. But I have a very good regex statement that seems to work fine so I don’t know if it’s worth changing anything at this point.

    #^(0[1-9]|1[012])[- /.](0[1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])[- /.](19|20)\d\d$#i

    Do you know if anyone has had any success either hooking into a date picker, or even using a jquery validator so that it reformats the content as it’s being entered?

    Thanks again!

    If you store your dates as text, you won’t be able to use the field for sorting or for searches and dates are compared. If you can, you should use a date field for dates, it’s just a lot easier than trying to translate strings.

    great great point! thanks for the tip!
