CRUD module: please add support for timestamp fields

Reported by Erwan Loisant | October 5th, 2010 @ 11:56 AM | in 1.3 (closed)

I have the need to retrieve time values from the user. The Java Date class encapsulates both date and time values. Would be nice if CRUD could allow input of date AND time.

Some thoughts on how to implement:
1. Add annotation(s) to the play.models.Model class (or maybe it should go in validation?):

  1. In the case of @DateAndTimeField, have CRUD generate two input tags - one for the date portion, the other for the time portion. Then, have a hidden field that contains the full timestamp value and that will be submitted to the actual Date field. For example:

public class MyClass extends Model {

public Date appointment;


CRUD-generated show/blank forms:

<!-- the date portion of the appointment --> <!-- the time portion of the appointment --> <!-- the hidden field that hold the fully qualified timestamp - will need to listen to changes to both fields -->

Thanks in advance! Love Play! Also, after some more experience, I'd like to get involved with contributing code to the Play! project.

<h2>Play framework</h2>

Play makes it easier to build Web applications with Java. It is a clean alternative to bloated Enterprise Java stacks. It focuses on developer productivity and targets RESTful architectures. Learn more on the <a href="http://www.playframework.org">http://www.playframework.org</a> website.<br><br>

<h2>Source code is hosted on github</h2>Check out our repository at <a href="http://github.com/playframework/play">http://github.com/playframework/play</a><br><br>

<h2>Contributing, creating a patch</h2> Please read the <a href="http://play.lighthouseapp.com/projects/57987/contributor-guide">contributor guide</a><br><br>

<h2>Reporting Security Vulnerabilities</h2> Since all bug reports are public, please report any security vulnerability directly to <em>guillaume dot bort at gmail dot com</em>.<br><br>

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>

Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.<br><br>

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
