select_date(date = Date.current, options = {}, html_options = {}) public

Returns a set of html select-tags (one for year, month, and day) pre-selected with the date. It’s 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 the array passed to the :order option does not contain all the three symbols, all tags will be hidden.

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

Examples

my_date = Time.now + 6.days
