HTML::FormFu::Deflator::Strftime - Strftime deflator
$form->deflator( Strftime => 'start_time' )
->strftime( '%d/%m/%Y' );
- type: Text

Strftime deflator for DateTime objects.
When you redisplay a form to the user following an invalid submission, any fields with DateTime inflators will stringify to something like '1970-01-01T00:00:00'. In most cases it makes more sense to use the same format you've asked the user for. This deflator allows you to specify a more suitable and user-friendly format.
This deflator calls DateTime's strftime method. Possible values for the format string are documented at http://search.cpan.org/dist/DateTime/lib/DateTime.pm#strftime_Patterns.
If you set the form's locale (see "locale" in HTML::FormFu) this is set on the DateTime object. Now you can use %x to get the default date or %X for the default time for the object's locale.
