Cjuidatepicker Not Saving To Database

Not sure what’s going on, but I can’t save the date submitted by form data, it always saves 0000-00-00.


	<div class="row">

		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'svc_date'); ?>

        <?php $this->widget('zii.widgets.jui.CJuiDatePicker', array(

            'model' => $model,

            'attribute' => 'svc_date',

            'options' => array(

                'appendText' => ' - mm/dd/yyyy',

                'dateFormat' => 'mm/dd/yy'


        )); ?>

		<?php echo $form->error($model,'svc_date'); ?>


I thought that maybe this was due to input not being an actual date, so I added a conversion event:

    protected function beforeSave()




            $this->svc_date = date('m/d/Y', strtotime($this->svc_date));


        return parent::beforeSave();


but this made no difference.

MySQL field is set to DATE

Dear Friend

You change the dateFormat in widget in the following way.

'dateFormat' => 'yy-mm-dd'

Then there is no need to override the beforSave method.


Ah, this works well, thank you! Much appreciated.

How do I go about setting my desired date and time format? Is this constraint due to MySQL table field?

MySQL is only accepting english notation, therfore you have to add a conversion layer between user input and db.

For this you could use a behavior like i18n-datetime-behavior

(if you decide to use this extensions also take a look at the valueable comments that other users made, especially this and this. Could you save some debugging issues… ;) )

Nice, I’ll be looking into that.

Thank you.
