NAME

HTML::FormFu::Deflator::Strftime - Strftime deflator

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    $form->deflator( Strftime => start_time )
        ->strftime( %d/%m/%Y );

    ---
    elements:
        - type: Text
          inflators:
              - type: DateTime
                parser:
                    strptime: "%Y/%m/%d"
          deflator:
              - type: Strftime
                strftime: "%Y/%m/%d"



DESCRIPTION

Strftime deflator for DateTime objects.

When you redisplay a form to the user following an invalid submission, any fields with DateTime inflators will stringify to something like ’1970-01-01T00:00:00’. In most cases it makes more sense to use the same format you’ve asked the user for. This deflator allows you to specify a more suitable and user-friendly format.

This deflator calls DateTime’s strftime method. Possible values for the format string are documented at <http://search.cpan.org/dist/DateTime/lib/DateTime.pm#strftime_Patterns>.

If you set the form’s locale (see locale in HTML::FormFu) this is set on the DateTime object. Now you can use %x to get the default date or %X for the default time for the object’s locale.
