Date_select oddness

Hello,
I have a problem when with this tag in view:
<%= date_select :customdate, nil %>

In the controller there is:
d = Date.new
d = params[:customdate]
render_text “#{d.inspect}”

The problem is the :customdate doesnt get transformed
into Date, instead I get this:
{"(3i)"=>“29”, “(1i)”=>“2005”, “(2i)”=>“11”}

Any ideas how to solve it?

Best regards,
Tom

Shouldn’t it be:

d = Date.new( params[:customdate] )

??

Nope. This throws an error:
NoMethodError in Forms#korpus_create_row

undefined method `-’ for {"(3i)"=>“30”, “(1i)”=>“2005”,
“(2i)”=>“11”}:HashWithIndifferentAccess

I have changed it into:
<%= date_select :row, :customdate %>

The problem is the :customdate doesnt get transformed
into Date, instead I get this:
{"(3i)"=>“29”, “(1i)”=>“2005”, “(2i)”=>“11”}
With this little function

def date_select_to_date(struct,name)
Date.new(struct["#{name}(1i)"].to_i,
struct["#{name}(2i)"].to_i,
struct["#{name}(3i)"].to_i)
end

I can get the date in the controller:

d = date_select_to_date(params[:row],'customdate ')
