Yii 1.1: edaterangepicker

EDateRangePicker From Filament Group


EDateRangePicker is a very simple widget that encapsulates the amazing Date Range Picker plugin developed by Filament Group.

The plugin worked with jquery.ui.v1.6 and jquery.v1.5.3 so I updated the plugin to work with latests versions of jquery.ui.v1.8 and jquery.v1.6 and also fixed some bugs on its logic to work with Yii.

So, remember that it is a modified version of the plugin and any feedback on its bugs will be highly appreciated.

I have created a GitHub repository for those willing to contribute on any of the extensions I created. Please, check the link at the bottom of this wiki.

Great extension, but can I put the widget inline?

This module looks great, but is there a way I can include it inline? I am using it on a search page, and the layout I am using has all the input on the same line as the label. When I try to put the module on the same line as the label, the label gets absorbed into the picker.

For example, in the code below the open_date label does not display.

<div class="row">
                <?php echo $form->label($model,'open_date'); ?>

Is there a way to put this picker in the same line as something else, or do I have to put it on a different line using br tags?

Issue when using two date fields with this component

I tried to use the DateRangePicker in two fields of a form, but had an issue: The second componente sets the date in the INPUT field of the first component.

This is the code:

$this->widget('EDateRangePicker',array( 'id'=>'AdvSrchArea_fec_fin', 'name'=>'Area[fec_fin]', 'options'=>array( 'dateFormat'=>'dd/mm/yy'), 'htmlOptions'=>array('class'=>'datefieldlong'), ));

$this->widget('EDateRangePicker',array( 'id'=>'AdvSrchArea_fecha', 'name'=>'Area[fecha]', 'options'=>array( 'dateFormat'=>'dd/mm/yy'), 'htmlOptions'=>array('class'=>'datefieldlong'), ));

maybe I'm doing something wrong? I'm using different IDs and names.

Internationalization comes with datepickerOptions within options, and you set them as you do with datepicker. Please, refer to its documentation.

Great extension! but I found a little bug

This ext is cool! But I was unable to run it out of the box, it's an issue related to the DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR (used at the end of the script). I replaced DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR with '/' and the ext runs fine under linux. With DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR I found that the separator used was the backslash '\', and it's not OK for URL construction, like the CSS path and .JS path.

I will try to figure out how to use it to filter a CGridView by a date column. If you have any instruction or advise on it, I will very appreciate your sharing =)
