I *hate* date pickers. They slow down input. I can type 082309<Enter>
faster than I can ever do it with a date picker. The date class knows
I'm in America and since it's a six-digit date, it must be mmddyy. (Yes,
for those of you *not* in America, I agree our dates are goofy. I think
we all ought to be on the metic system, too, but America and the UK seem
intent on sticking to Imperial measure.)
Yes, that's part of the problem. I was suggesting an exercise where
people could put their collective heads together and create a php
I realize that US has DD, MM, YYYY and the Euros have YYYY, MM, DD
and others have other things (i.e., Year of the York).
Not addressing the "other things" -- to me, if one uses a character
for a month, then there's no problem in deciphering any entry
regardless of format.
For example, 2009 Aug 23, or Aug 23 2009, or Aug 2009 23, or 23 2009
Aug, -- they could all be entered in whatever order you want and
deciphered correctly. The rules of course are:
Year must be in thousands -- 1000-5000.
Month must be a character -- D for December, May for May, Jun for
June and so on.
Day must be in ones or tens -- 1 or 09, or 31.
It's certainly not a problem to write such code, I only suggested the
exercise to get people to expound on the problems they encountered.
