form helper time_select "1 week", "11 days", etc ...

I have a time field named duration and i wanna create a select list with options in the model for “1 week”, “11 days” I know how to create for a basic select but not for time

I have not tried it, but I would be surprised if giving the select box elapsed time values (such as 1.week, 11.days, the difference of two Time values, and so on) did not just work. Have you tried?


yea, i tried that in the model i got goofy results something about nil i forget what so i did some reading and it looks like i should change the field type to integer and store values in seconds and then let my app work with that data
