#select_weekday

A <select> tag for easily picking a day of the week, plus some convenience methods for handling weekdays throughout your code.

Installation

gem install select_weekday, or add select_weekday to your Gemfile and bundle install.

https://rubygems.org/gems/select_weekday

Usage

select_weekday gives you two new view helpers.

  • select_weekday
  • select_weekday_tag

It also adds methods for parsing weekdays to Date, DateTime, and ActiveSupport::TimeZone.

  • self.weekday (Date only)
  • self.parse_weekday

select_weekday

ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.select_weekday(method, options = {}, html_options = {})

Here, our form has a model with an attribute called week_start_day.

<%= f.select_weekday :week_start_day %>

select_weekday_tag

ActionView::Helpers::FormTagHelper.select_weekday_tag(name, selected = nil, options = {})

If you don't want to bind to a model's form, you can also create the directly. You can set the selected value by name or index. Days are zero-indexed, based on Date::DAYNAMES. select_weekday_tag :week_start_day, "Monday" select_weekday_tag :week_start_day, "2" select_weekday_tag :week_start_day, 3 self.weekday Date.weekday(idx) Given a weekday by name or index, return the weekday's name. Date.weekday "Monday" => "Monday" Date.weekday "2" => "Tuesday" Date.weekday 3 => "Wednesday" self.parse_weekday Date.parse_weekday(idx) DateTime.parse_weekday(idx) ActiveSupport.TimeZone::parse_weekday(idx) Given a weekday by name or index, parse it as a date/time. Date.parse_weekday "Monday" => Mon, 05 Nov 2012 DateTime.parse_weekday "2" => Tue, 06 Nov 2012 00:00:00 +0000 Time.zone.parse_weekday 3 => Wed, 07 Nov 2012 00:00:00 EST +10:00 Copyright Copyright (c) 2012 Alex Ghiculescu.
