Validates_dateness_of?


#1

Hello all.

I don’t suppose some enterprising soul with much more skill than me has
whipped up a “validates_dateness_of” (Complete with leap year
calculations) method for use with all the other validation methods and
wishes to spread much much joy?

Cheers

Think this is what you’re looking for:
http://svn.viney.net.nz/things/rails/plugins/validates_date_time
http://svn.viney.net.nz/things/rails/plugins/validates_date_time

Haven’t used it but seems to do that and more

Yeah, validates_date_time will probably do what you’re after. I’d be
interested in your feedback from using it. Any thoughts? Improvements?
Problems?

Does it validate both Date and Time together? A datetime field in MySQL
for example.

Thanks!

At the moment it does date and time separately. That’s simply because
I haven’t needed to validate a datetime input on a form yet. Feel free
to write patch if you like!
