How to validate a date_select field


#1

View [actually in a partial]…

<%= date_select 'contract_payment', 'credit_card_expiration_date', { :order => [:month, :year], :start_year => 2006, :end_year => 2020, :use_month_numbers => true, :discard_day => true, :include_blank => true } %>

Model :

validates_presence_of :credit_card_expiration_date,
:credit_card_number

This is not right. The View renders correctly (minus the hard-coded
2006… not sure yet how to replace that].

I want to make the month and year [sub-]fields required. I also want
them to be greater than today. The “validates_presence_of” doesn’t
handle both the month and year correctly.

I would really appreciate an example.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi, you can try using the following:

or

valid_date?

Good luck,
