Date fields not updating properly.

Date fields not updating properly.

No matter what I enter in my date fields, using the date picker, it always shows as 1-01-1970 on screen, in the update page. In the database itself, it shows up as 0000-00-00. I am going to include FTP info in a private message, but please don't edit anything that's already there as it will mess up the dates. Instead, please create new records to test with. If you do a search for sandy1 in the title field, you can work with this one as well. Thank you.

The issue is with the insert and update page, not the page it is displayed on.

You need to convert the data to use the format: YYYY-MM-DD in order for mySQL to recognize it properly.

The way to do that is to reformat the date with the date() function on the insert and update page like:

php:
<?php echo(date('Y-m-d',$_POST['dateField']));  ?>

In the update behavior, in the Bindings panel, which formatting option should I choose? This is what is currently entered, but it's not working.

<?php echo date('Y-m-d',((isset($_POST["datepicker_"]))?$_POST["datepicker_"]:"")); ?>

Okay - I think I finally have it working.

<?php echo date('Y-m-d',strtotime(((isset($_POST["datepicker_"]))?$_POST["datepicker_"]:""))); ?>

Why won't the program do this automatically?

Thanks.

The MySQLi version does this automatically for date fields. We will be integrating it into Data Bridge in the next major update.
