Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Timestamp - Enter a valid timestamp


  Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Timestamp->new (
    format    => A format string describing the the time fields
    Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Widget attributes


This class implements a bunch of text entries to manage a valid timestamp (date and time down to minute level). The object value is a unix timestamp (in localtime).



  +--- Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Timestamp



Attributes are handled through the common get_ATTR(), set_ATTR() style accessors, but they are mostly passed once to the object constructor and must not be altered after the associated FormFactory was built.

format = SCALAR [optional]

This is a format string to define which timestamp fields should be edited and how they should be displayed.

Format wildcards are defined as follows:

  %Y    Year, four digits
  %m    Month, two digits
  %d    Day of month, two digits
  %k    Hour of the day, two digits
  %M    Minutes, two digits

Everything else in the format string will be rendered as labels between the time field text entries.

The format string defaults to

  %d.%m.%Y %k:%M

All time fields which are not part of the format string will get a default value of 0.

For more attributes refer to Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Widget.
