Datetimepicker problem starting decades

labbyjoel , February 10 2012

I've got a problem this the datetimepicker starting in decades.

when I open the datepicker, it starts well on the 200-2019 decades. I can go left or right to change decades.

I press 2 times the left arrow to select the 1960 - 1079 decades.

the code seem then like this :

I select then the 1970 year

the display show the monthes, but the selection stay on the years

the "roll over" effect on the month doesn't work and If I click over a month, example "MAI", The year 1967 is choosen and I can then re choose a month correctly.

Hope this is clear ! :-)



ps: the problem is visible on this "on construction page"

on the field "Date de naissance"


Hi Joel,

Well, the good news is that I can reproduce the bug (in CFV4 RC3.11 on Joomla! 2.5).

The bad news is that I don't see any mention of it on the MonkeyPhysics site so it may be an artefact of MooTools 1.3+ We do know that this datepicker hasn't been updated for a while and isn't fully compatible with new MooTools releases.

The other good news is that I tested the MooTools DatePicker on the same site and it doesn't seem to have the bug. Installation instructions are here. In my opinion it's a significant improvement over the MonkeyPhysics version. It's a fork of the MonkeyPhysics one that is being currently updated.



perfect !!
