select_datetime(datetime = Time.current, options = {}, html_options = {}) public

Returns a set of html select-tags (one for year, month, day, hour, and minute) pre-selected with the datetime. It’s also possible to explicitly set the order of the tags using the :order option with an array of symbols :year, :month and :day in the desired order. If you do not supply a Symbol, it will be appended onto the :order passed in. You can also add :date_separator, :datetime_separator and :time_separator keys to the options to control visual display of the elements.

If anything is passed in the html_options hash it will be applied to every select tag in the set.

Examples

  my_date_time = Time.now + 4.days

  select_datetime(my_date_time)

  select_datetime()

  # Generates a datetime select that defaults to the datetime in my_date_time (four days after today)

  # separated by a comma (',').
  select_datetime(my_date_time, :date_separator => '/', :time_separator => '', :datetime_separator => ',')

  # Generates a datetime select that discards the type of the field and defaults to the datetime in
  # my_date_time (four days after today)
  select_datetime(my_date_time, :discard_type => true)
