Format date input on active scaffold form

Hi,

Being new to RoR, I have had difficulty finding information regarding
date formats for active scaffold. I have a DATE field on the create
form of one of my controllers. For this specific controller, I would
like to capture the year only (i.e. %Y). I have already created a
helper to display the %Y date on the view, but I cannot figure out how
to do a similar change to the form to only request the user for the
year.

Any thoughts on how this can be done?

You have to customize the field either in helper or in view. That is
also called form/field overrides. See
http://activescaffold.com/docs/form-overrides and
http://activescaffold.com/docs/field-overrides for help.
