You can separate date and time by…

first you need to convert into date format
datetime=params[:e_date]
datetime=datetime.to_date
date = date.strftime(’%Y-%m-%d’)"

I hope this helps u…

Hi Colin

Conversion is required because passing value is string not datetime …

I think there is no need to convert it to a Date, just use strftime on
the DateTime object to show just the date portion.

Yes you are right, I was thinking datetime_select was being used to
read into a DateTime object.

Are you storing the time as a string in the DB? If so, don’t. Store
times as time or datetime.

i want to fetch the records which is between the above two times …
how can i implement the query

SELECT * FROM table
WHERE hour(time) BETWEEN 0 and 19

pls suggest me

hi…
i m using date picker like below
<%= calendar_date_select_tag “e_date[]”, Date.today, :popup => :force
,:time => true %>

is it possible to disable the dates …
i want to able to select only time…
is it possible…
thanks in advance

Use TIME_FORMAT in mysql query to fetch records…

SELECT * FROM TABLE_NAME
WHERE TIME_FORMAT( time, “%h:%i %p” ) > “12:00 am”
AND TIME_FORMAT( time, “%h:%i %p” ) < “7:00 pm”

Set the format as per your requirement…

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/date-and-time-functions.html#function_time-format

Model.find(:all, :conditions => {:time_field => (from…to)})
