NAME

Form::Sensible::Field::DateTime - A DateTime field type.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Form::Sensible::Field::DateTime;
   
    my $object = Form::Sensible::Field::DateTime->new(
                    span => datetime_span_object,
                    recurrence => $recurrence_sub,
    );

    $object->do_stuff();

    my $object2 = Form::Sensible::Field::DateTime->new(
                    span => datetime_span_object,
                    recurrence => hourly,
    );

    $object2->do_stuff();



DESCRIPTION

The datetime field type is one of the more advanced field types in Form::Sensible. It uses DateTime::Format::Natural to format user input into a valid DateTime object, and uses DateTime::Set to allow date range numbers. It can be set to have a lower and upper bound, allowing validation to ensure that the value selected is within a range.

Finally, it can be rendered in a number of ways including select boxes, drop downs or even ranged-sliders if your renderer supports it. It can have a ’recurrence’, which provides a constraint to what values are valid between the datetime span, otherwise it just returns the DateTime value set for the field.

ATTRIBUTES

recurrence A subroutine that is used when this field is used as a Select field. See the from_recurrence method in DateTime::Set for more information on how you might structure the subroutine. Only useful when span is defined. As a convenience, if you pass the following strings, they will DWYM:
yearly
by_year
monthly
by_month
daily
by_day
span A DateTime::Span object that is used to represent the valid date range for this field.

METHODS

validate Validates the field against the numeric constraints set for the field.
get_additional_configuration Returns a hashref consisting of the attributes for this field and their values.
The following two methods allow DateTime fields to be treated like Select Fields for rendering purposes.
get_options() An array ref containing the allowed options. Each option is represented as a hash containing a name element and a value element for the given option.
set_selection() Sets whatever is the current $self->value option as the selected option selected. This is used when a DateTime field is used as a Select field and overrides Select’s set_selection method.
accepts_multiple On a Select field, this defines whether the field can have multiple values. For a DateTime field, only one value is allowed, so this always returns false.
