HI All

I have a html form which has two date fields - datefrom & dateto. I am using CGI::Application::ValidateRM to validate form to make sure that users have entered dates. This is working fine.

Problem is I am not able to force user to enter datefrom < dateto, which is important. I can get around this by using sql and then reload the page all over again but I want to avoid it. Using Date::Calc->Delta_Days I am able to calculate total no of days, either +tive or -tive. However I am not able to fit this into profile of the page. At the moment my check_rm profile read like this

my ($results,$err_page) = $self->check_rm('holidayRequest',{ required => ['holidayfrom','holidayto'], optional => ['usercomments'], filters => ['trim'], msgs=>{ any_errors => 'err__', prefix=>'err_', }, }); return $err_page if $err_page;

Thanks in advance for your help

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
