NAME

Jifty::Filter::DateTime -- A Jifty::DBI filter to work with Jifty::DateTime objects

SYNOPSIS

   # use it with Jifty::DBI::Filter::Date or J::D::F::DateTime
    column created =>
      type is 'timestamp',
      filters are qw( Jifty::Filter::DateTime Jifty::DBI::Filter::DateTime),
      label is 'Created',
      is immutable;

DESCRIPTION

Jifty::Filter::DateTime promotes DateTime objects to Jifty::DateTime (or your application's DateTime subclass) objects on load. This has the side effect of setting their time zone based on the record's current user's preferred time zone, when available.

This is intended to be combined with Jifty::DBI::Filter::Date or Jifty::DBI::Filter::DateTime, e.g.

    column created =>
      type is 'timestamp',
      filters are qw( Jifty::Filter::DateTime Jifty::DBI::Filter::DateTime),
      label is 'Created',
      is immutable;

decode

If the value is a DateTime, replace it with a Jifty::DateTime (or your application's subclass) representing the same time, setting the time zone in the process.
