Requirements

  • SilverStripe 3.0 or newer

Features

  • Builds on silverstripe DateField (with Text field), same config & localisation supported (specific locales may need some further testing)
  • Integrates MDP 1.6.3, a plugin that enables jQuery UI calendar to manage multiple dates
  • Allows setting custom date separator (default: ", "), more Multidatepicker-specific configuration options can easily be added.
  • TODO(!): I could use some help with the silverstripe config system for this module; I'm now using ($this->getConfig('separator') ? $this->getConfig('separator') : ', ') in order to provide a callback for the date separator because sometimes custom configuration values don't seem to load.
  • TODO: Saving into many_many relation (currently only textfield supported)
  • TODO: Full unit test coverage
  • TODO: Validation (currently commented out)

Usage

		'Dates' => 'Text'
	);
}
