Im using radrails and mysql database, im using DATE in mysql for a date of birth column, When i use this in Radrails the date shows as dropdown lists, the days and month are fine but the year list only shows 2002-2012.
i was a bit misleaded because of the mysql bit, but after reading your
mail twice i’d say the db has nothing to do with this problem and your
problem is about date_select
under this assumption, i would recommend to read through the
date_select documentation, specially where it says " It‘s possible to
tailor the selects through the
options hash, which accepts all the keys that each of the
individual select builders do (like :use_month_numbers for select_month)
as well as a range of
then if you go to the “select_year” doc you will see a couple of
interesting options: :start_year and :end_year.
so… if you provide date_select with these two options, you can
constraint the date range to use instead of going with the default
(which is 5 years before/after the given date).
For future questions to the list i’d recommend to post the code where
you have the problem, that way no assumptions about what you are doing
