Re: 1.3.x and date field input field improvement - quick date entry

We add a few special variables to what is passed to the template.  By convention all special variables are in all caps.

USER is the variable to access the user object.

Here is a quick video demo about the enhancement: http://youtu.be/jonu1UqU4ys

I run into trouble with the new code: user.dateformat is empty, generated forms do not have title attribute ( for example: (yyyy-mm-dd) )

I tried several ways (<?lsmb user.dateformat ?>  and $myconfig{dateformat} but all of them are failed.

My question, how can I give the dateformat string to the title attribute?


  • UI/lib/elements.html
  • UI/Contact/search.html  (new code below, title is empty or script error, depends on what I try)
    • <?lsmb text('From'); ' '; INCLUDE input element_data={ size = '11', type='text', name = 'startdatefrom', class = 'date', title = <?lsmb user.dateformat ?>, _onblur_ = "return dattrans('startdatefrom');" };

Hi All,

Yesterday I committed two modifications into my repository for 1.3.41.

I have an old, sql-ledger fork from www.tavugyvitel.hu and its date input field makes date entry very quick.

It works like this: 

I enter 0815 to the date field and press TAB to move the next input. A small _javascript_ changes this string to a valid date, for my case to 2014-08-15

With big help from Erik (ehu) on the irc channel, I succeed to integrate it into my 1.3.41 version and I commit to my github fork.

At this moment this works on offer/order/invoice date fields.

I searched and modified all class="date" input fields, but there are a lot of other date field where this class does not exist, so, I have to scan all the source to find and extend all date fields.

So, who is interesting about this modification, here are the two commits:
