Date and time form helpers: Ruby on Rails 5 Essential Training
Date and time form helpers: Ruby on Rails 5 Essential Training

Date and times on forms are complex. Allowing a user to choose a date and time requires generating 5 or 6 select-option tags. Then the values of those select-option tags must be parsed when the form is sent in and also to know which are the currently selected values. Rails has date_select, time_select, and datetime_select helpers which are configurable and take the pain out of the process. Rails also knows how to parse these values when they are submitted or to determine the currently selected values of the options.
