Date picker capabilities

Is the date picker part of this extension able to give me daily and hourly appointment slots?

I need to create an hourly appointment registration and I am hoping this can do it, but if not, is there something in webassist that can do it?

Thanks.

the data picker can only do calendar days, not times.


you would need to create a select list for the appointment times.

use the date picker to select the day, and the select list for the time.

Is there a way to modify the datepicker so that it also adds time once you select a date. How would you modify the code to do that?

the datepicker extension is based on the jquery Datepicker

datepicker/

Ther is no time option for this extension

It is fairly straightforward to add a text or select list to your form in order to store the time as well.

If you don't mind doing some coding, take a look at

anytime/

if you want an integrated extension.

Personally, i never bothered, as a select list in addition to the date picker is sufficient for my needs

Thanks for that Craig. I will take a look.
What I am trying to do is do a date time stamp equivalent where I have 2 seperate registrations. The user registration has hidden field ala <?php echo(date("Y-m-d h:m:s")); ?> but I am wanting the admin to change the date by using an altered datepicker to be able to adjust the date and have h:m:s at the time the admin used the date picker so that the format of date time is the same

Thanks Craig. That resource is quite something. It would be fantastic if this kind of thing could be implemented within the WA Datepicker

The addition of a set time

In the date picker code of my user-insert, I have:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});
</script>

I want to add a set time of 12:00:00 to the date so that I achieve a date time to the database.

Can this do it?

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd 12:00:00',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});
</script>

If not, is there a way to do it?

Thanks

No, the datepicker wont except a time format.


you can change the date on post though, to include the time.

for example, if the name of the date picker element is "datePicker" add the following code at line 1:


php:
<?php if(isset($_POST['datePicker'])) $_POST['datePicker'] = $_POST['datePicker']." 12:00:00"?>

following Jason indication I have make this:
I added two select field in form one for hour and on for minutes, and the changed the post:
<?php if(isset($_POST['datePicker'])) $_POST['datePicker'] = $_POST['datePicker']." 12:00:00"; ?>

to

<? php if (isset($_POST["datePicker"]))? $_POST["datePicker"] . " " . $_POST['hour'] . ":" . $_POST['minutes'] . ":" . "00" ; ?>

and work fine.
My real db insert is:

|" . "".((isset($_POST["datePicker"]))?(my_change_date_format_function($_POST["datePicker"])) . " " . $_POST['ora'] . ":" . $_POST['minuti'] . ":" . "00" :"") ."" . "|
