Validation for DateTime Widget

Hi everybody.

Thanks for reading this stuff.

I am using dosamigos DateTimePicker component in my app and almost all things are fine. The only issue that I can not figure out is how to enable/make client validation for this type of fiedl.


The widget code:[/b]

echo DateTimePicker::widget([

    'model' => $model,

    'attribute' => 'date',

    'size' => 'ms',

    'clientOptions' => [

        'autoclose' => true,

        'startView' => 3,

        'minView' => 3,

        'maxView' => 4,    

        'format' => 'yyyy-mm-dd'        



The Model Code - rules() function

public function rules()


        return [

            [['id', 'date'], 'required'],

            [['date'], 'date', 'format' => 'yyyy-mm-dd']



The logic works fine, so the model is not submitted due to false validation, but I really want to show user standard ‘has-error’ class when he forgets to pick the date from the field.

Please do not hesistate any questions or ask for other snippets.

Many thanks in advance!

The problem is that you use the widget directly, thus not displaying the element where the errors are displayed by yii. The proper way to do it is:

echo $form->field($model, 'date')->widget(DateTimePickerWidget::class, [ ... ]);
