    Reuse of datepicker - how to get the value?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to reuse the umbraco Datepicker in a dialogservice together with other inputfields to edit some data.

    This is how I included it so far in the controller:

    $scope.dateValue=new Date();
    $scope.datePicker = {
        editor: "Umbraco.DateTime",
        alias:"datepicker",
        view: 'datepicker',
        config: {
            pickDate: true,
            pickTime: false,
            useSeconds: false,
            format: "YYYY-MM-DD",
            icons: {
                time: "icon-time",
                date: "icon-calendar",
                up: "icon-chevron-up",
                down: "icon-chevron-down"
            }
        }, value: $scope.dateValue
    };
    

    In the view:

     <umb-property property="datePicker">
         <umb-editor model="datePicker"></umb-editor>
     </umb-property>
    

    Before I submit the dialogService, I checked the value in $scope.dateValue but even if I selected another date in the picker, it's still the current date (because I set it to new Date in the beginning).

    I expected the selected date to be stored in the variable I passed as value but it's not working. I was also looking in other forum threads but didn't found something working. Can you tell me how I can access the selected value of the datePicker?

    Thank you in advance and best regards Theresa

    Did you ever find a solution to this?

    Hi Peter,

    I built something around the Picker to get the value right from the input-field of the picker and worked with that. I still don't know how to get the value from the picker itself, I'm sorry.

    The value is property of the $scope.datePicker. This means that you can get the value like this.

    alert($scope.datePicker.value);

    I have tried this, too but it has never changed, even if I changed the date in the picker.

    It is strange. How you try to get the value? Do you try to get the value inside your controller?

    I have tried it in the controller, for example with the console.log or the debugger, but also in the model for a quick look.

    It returned always the value I set before when I created the picker.

    You are right. I just made a test and for some reason the date picker does not update the value. I have tested it with other views like media picker or content picker and it works so I suppose there is a problem with the Date Picker view.

    Hi All - I think I found a solution to this problem... - I was looking for a DataPicket that took current Date if empty. I've used this string as inspiration.

    This is my View:

    <div class="umb-editor umb-datepicker" ng-controller="Custom.DatePreValue">
    <umb-editor model="datePickerNow"></umb-editor></div>
    

    This is my controller:

    angular.module("umbraco")
    .controller("Custom.DatePreValue",
    function ($scope, $filter) {
        $scope.dateValue = $scope.model.value;
    
        if (!$scope.model.value) { 
            $scope.dateValue = $filter('date')(new Date, "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss");
        }
    
        $scope.datePickerNow = {
            view: 'datepicker',
            config: {
                pickDate: true,
                pickTime: true,
                pick12HourFormat: false,
                format: "YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss"
            }, value: $scope.dateValue
        };
    
        $scope.$on("formSubmitting", function (ev, args) {
            $scope.model.value = $scope.datePickerNow.value
        });
    });
    

    Everything works as intented :-)
