DataAssist date field is not updating correctly

DataAssist date field is not updating correctly

I am using a MySQL database and the field type is set to DATE. Whenever I try to change the date, using DataAssist, it comes back to me as 0000-00-00. It's not updating correctly. The Update Option Data Type is being set to Date, within the DA wizard. I've never encountered this before and I'm not sure how to fix it...???

when posting date data into a mySQL date column, it must be in the yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss format.

any other format such as mm/dd/yyyy will cause this problem

you can use the php date function to reformat your date before it is entered into the db, send a copy of your page, And I will give your code change that needs to be made.

Thanks, Jason. Here is the code. Another thing I'm using is a javascript date picker, which is formatting the date in another format. This is probably contributing, too?

Just out of curiousity, Jason, shouldn't this be a feature built in within DA, to fix the dates before inserting them into the database? Most people I know are not going to enter a date in a yyyy-mm-dd format. Just my thoughts... :)

change:

php:
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".((isset($_POST["eventName"]))?$_POST["eventName"]:"") ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["eventDate"]))?$_POST["eventDate"]:"") ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["eventInfo"]))?$_POST["eventInfo"]:"") ."";




to:

php:
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".((isset($_POST["eventName"]))?$_POST["eventName"]:"") ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["eventDate"]))?date("Y-m-d h:m:i", strtotime($_POST["eventDate"])):"") ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["eventInfo"]))?$_POST["eventInfo"]:"") ."";





it can be argued both ways, if you had a text field where you where storing the date, you would not want the date format to automatically reformat it on insert, the issue only really occurs when you have a date field.
