The <a href="/rails/Date">Date</a> Helper primarily creates select/option tags for different kinds of dates and date elements. All of the select-type methods share a number of common options that are as follows:

  • :prefix - overwrites the default prefix of "date" used for the select names. So specifying "birthday" would give birthday[month] instead of date[month] if passed to the select_month method.
  • :include_blank - set to true if it should be possible to set an empty date.
  • :discard_type - set to true if you want to discard the type part of the select name. If set to true, the select_month method would use simply "date" (which can be overwritten using :prefix) instead of "date[month]".


DEFAULT_PREFIX = 'date' unless const_defined?('DEFAULT_PREFIX')
