How to put this datetime in a new form?

I have this is my new form:

<table>
  <tr>
  <th><%= _('Sales date') %></th>
  </tr>

  <tr>
  <td>    <%= f.datetime_select :sales_date %></td>
  </tr>
</table>

With this code I’m showing year, month, day and hour. I only want to
show year and month. How can I do that?

Try:

<%= f.date_select(:sales_date, :discard_day => 1) %>

Thnaks, it works! Now I obtain Year - Month. O would like to obtain
Month - Year. Is it possible?

You specify an additional option of :order

<%= f.date_select :sales_date, :discard_day => true, :order => [:month,
:year] %>

I have:

<table >
  <tr>
  <th><%= _('Sales date') %></th>
 </tr>

  <tr>
  <td><%=h @ticket.sales_date.to_s(:short)%> </td>
  </tr>

</table>

It shows day, month and hour. I want it to show day and month

Day month and year you mean?

@ticket.sales_date.strftime("%m-%Y")

Thanks. I mean some kind of method, like :short. I need that because I’m
using Gettext with datetime objects.

.strftime is a method. You meant an argument. You’d have to change the
way
that ActiveSupport deals out the date formats for that. I don’t have the
code on hand, sorry.

Look up the API for the datetime_select helper.

Julian.

environment.rb

Time::DATE_FORMATS[:special] = “%m-%Y”

/app/views/any_view.html.erb

<%=h @ticket.sales_date.to_s(:special)%>
