=head1 NAME

Rose::HTML::Form::Field::DateTime - Text field that inflates valid dates and times into L<DateTime> objects.


    $field =
        label   => 'Date',
        name    => 'date', 
        default => '12/31/2002 8pm');

    print $field->internal_value; # "2002-12-31T20:00:00"
    print $field->output_value;   # "2002-12-31 08:00:00 PM"


    # "Could not parse date: blah"
    $field->validate or warn $field->error;

    $field->input_value('4/30/1980 5:30 p.m.');

    $dt = $field->internal_value; # DateTime object

    print $dt->hour;     # 17
    print $dt->day_name; # Wednesday

    print $field->html;


L<Rose::HTML::Form::Field::DateTime> is a subclass of L<Rose::HTML::Form::Field::Text> that allows only valid dates as input, which it then coerces to L<DateTime> objects. It overrides the L<validate()|Rose::HTML::Form::Field/validate>, L<inflate_value()|Rose::HTML::Form::Field/inflate_value>, and L<deflate_value()|Rose::HTML::Form::Field/deflate_value> methods of its parent class.

Valid input is converted to the format "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS AM/PM" on output.


=over 4

=item B<date_parser [PARSER]>

Get or set the date parser object.  This object must include a C<parse_datetime()> method that takes a single string as an argument and returns a L<DateTime> object, or undef if parsing fails.

If the parser object has an C<error()> method, it will be called to set the error message after a failed parsing attempt.

The parser object defaults to L<Rose::DateTime::Parser-E<gt>new()|Rose::DateTime::Parser/new>.

=item B<output_format [FORMAT]>

Get or set the format string passed to L<Rose::DateTime::Util>'s L<format_date|Rose::DateTime::Util/format_date> function in order to generate the field's output value.  Defaults to "%Y-%m-%d %I:%M:%S %p"

=item B<time_zone [TZ]>

If the parser object has a L<time_zone()|/time_zone> method, this method simply calls it, passing all arguments.  Otherwise, undef is returned.
