Specifying m/d/y order in datetime_select


#1

the date_select form helper has a neat little feature which lets you
specify
the order of the month/day/year that is displayed on the form via the
:order
parameter. i.e.

<%= date_select ‘blah’, ‘somedate’, :order=>[ :month, :day, :year ] %>

however, i don’t see a similar option for datetime_select. passing
an :order parameter is happily ignored by the method. i would assume
this is
the case because either :order needs more parameters (:hour, :minute
don’t
work) or it is not parsed in a datetime_select context.

so, is this ordering available in datetime_select?

thanks!

That’s currently a known issue of the DateHelper.rb library. You can
find a
patch for this and many other issues where. Both EdgeRails and 1.0 diffs
are
available.
