[EP-tech] Autofill date field button

In fact EPrints should come with the pop up calendar feature as standard, but it got lost in the Master/3.3 changeover.  I have put in a pull request to get the updated functionality in (but it may not be in a good state (a file from another edit got muddled in there), I'm just not sure if anyone has even looked at it).  But I use this in production and it's good.


Ignore Extras.pm - that was something else.  I wasn't able to change this at an archive level - I had to replace the Date.pm and Time.pm files in perl_lib to get it to work.  The JS and CSS files are fine in the Archive config though.

But why..?
The IRStats2 package (that it looks like you're already using) comes with a calendar date-picker - and even defaults to today!?

You could possibly even implement it using one phrase and one XHTML workflow field!

Does that help at all?

Subject: [EP-tech] Autofill date field button

Hi All,

I have been asked if it is possible to add a button to a date field within the workflow... to allow the field to be auto populated with the current date. (I talked them down from a calendar popup)

I don't need the button for every date field rendered within the workflow, only this one particular instance...

Any thoughts would be appreciated before I start hacking things too badly ;)
