Pinned topic Dtae/Time in future

‏2012-12-18T20:45:15Z |
I would like the date/time picker to open in the future (April 01, 2013).
Is there a way to do this?

    One way to do this is to set the initial value of the input variable to default to a date in the future before displaying the form. When the picker is chosen it will use this date as the default value.

    So in the model I tried it in, I created an action list that did the assignment of the input variable to 2013-04-01 and then called the method to display the input form.

    That would be great.
    Is it possible to post your model?

    This model uses the provider from the order service provider model from the Building models feature set.

    Would i call this Action List from the Advanced tab of the DSUI under Action Before Create?

    Yes with dsui you would do that. but the action list would only have to have the assignment not the call to the create page.

    It doesn't have to be an action list it could easily be a method or an ljo where you call into java to get the current date if you need that to figure out the default value.

    Well this kind of works. The dates are now set on 04/01/2013 when the portlet opens, but i really dont want the dates pre-loaded. only need the dates if the user want to use the dates. They are not required. What i would like to see is when the user decides he would like to enter a date he would click on the calendar and the calendar would open to 04/01/2013. Is there a way to accomplish this? Thank You for all your help.

    If you add an attribute setter to the page and set the dropDownDefaultValue to the date you want it will default the picker to the correct date.

    That is EXACTLY what I wanted.
    I picked up a lot of information in this lesson on assigning values.
    Thank You.
