Strange Date Format Question

Strange Date Format Question

Hi,

I am trying to use datepicker to insert into MySQL database table into a date field

I changed this format in the code:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function(){
$('#datepicker_1').datepicker({
dateFormat: 'yyyy/mm/dd',
showAnim: 'show',
onClose: closeDatePicker_datepicker_1
});
});
function closeDatePicker_datepicker_1() {
var tElm = $('#datepicker_1');
if (typeof datepicker_1_Spry != null && typeof datepicker_1_Spry != "undefined" && date_Spry.validate) {
datepicker_1_Spry.validate();
}
tElm.blur();
}
</script>

However, when it does not insert but when you select a date from the calendar, it shows up still in mm/dd/yyyy format even though in the code its changed; please advise?

1) That is an invalid date format. in the date picker API:

yy stands for a 4 digit year format. y stands for a 2 digit date formation

use:
dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd',

2) changes to javascript may not be seen right away till you clear the browsers cache.

Ok I changed the date format and ran CCleaner to clear cache but still not working correctly.

When I go to update a record the date is still showing as 0000-00-00

And when I select a date from the calendar it shows as 09/05/2014

viewing the source code for page shows the old date format.


it doesn't look like your changes are being uploaded to the server properly.
