Using select_date causes errors


#1

I’m getting errors whenever the user chooses, for example, April 31st (
since there is no 31st in April, navicat freaks out ), there MUST be a
method that ruby has that would allow me to validate a date before I
submit to navicat.

I haven’t been able to find anything online about it either, it’s
probably something simple, I just can’t figure it out.

Thanks in advance,

This HAS to be a common problem. No one else suffering from it?

Ok, obviously I’m way over-tired…

I’ll just make an if statment to check if the month is one that has 30
days, and if the day is 31…

… and I’m gonna get some sleep

There’s a plugin “Validates date time” by J. Viney.

Google (or the RoR wiki) is your friend.
