Class::DBI::FormBuilder::Plugin::Time::Piece - Output Dates/Times Properly
Class::DBI::FormBuilder::Plugin::Time::Piece-E<gt>require; my $ok = Class::DBI::FormBuilder::Plugin::Time::Piece-E<gt>field($obj,$form,$column);
This module is loaded implicitly by CDBI::FormBuilder <= 0.32, when it encounters a Time::Piece object as a has_a field within a Class::DBI object/class. When that happens, Class::DBI::FormBuilder::Plugin::Time::Piece->field($obj,$form,$column) is called.
This routine will accept the object for which a form is being created, the CGI::FormBuilder object we're working with, and the field in question. field() is then expected to call (and return the return value of) $form->field(%args). As a result, a text field will be created within the form.
At this point, CDBI::FB::Plugin::Time::Piece serializes itself based upon MySQL types. Patches are most welcome!
We call column_type() on $obj, so it must be a Class::DBI::mysql object, or it needs to have used Class::DBI::Plugin::Type.
