Urgent - Getting 1969-12-31 for NULL date

    Hi,

    I'm having a date display issue with the latest SVN(258). If a date element's value is NULL in the database, it is showing up as '1969-12-31' in Detailed View of the record. The editable form is displaying NULL date as blank(empty) correctly. The problem is only with the detailed view. I didnt have this problem with SVN 195.

    Please let me know how to fix this one.

    Hi Hugh,

    I replaced the following code of drawDate() in fabrik.html.php
    .....
    if( !$oElement->_editable ){
    // $$$ hugh - if not editable, we can change the format
    return date($format, strtotime($value));
    }
    .....

    with

    if( !$oElement->_editable ){
    // $$$ hugh - if not editable, we can change the format
    if( $value == '')
    return $value;
    else
    return date($format, strtotime($value));
    }

    With the above fix, the weird date 1969-12-31 is gone. But i'm not sure if it will break something somewhere. Please advise if it is okay to have the above fix.

    Hmmm, I thought I'd fixed that one. That may have been one of the changes I lost in our little SVN screwup a few weeks ago.

    I'll take a look and get back to you.
