utilize html_select_date

Hi, I am trying to make use of the html_select_date custom function in a form for a tpl page.

Is there a correct way to get output from function. Everything I have tried, it does not return any values.

My code is below:

tpl file
Code: Select all
<form method="post" name="search" id="search" action="{url page="page" op="search"}">
    {html_select_date prefix="start" all_extra="class=\"selectMenu\"" start_year="$yearOffsetPast" end_year="$yearOffsetFuture" time="$start"}
        <input type="submit" name="start" value="{translate key="common.search"}" class="button defaultButton" />

In the handler
Code: Select all
$start = Request::getUserVar('start') ? Request::getUserVar('start') : "null";
print $start . "<br>";

I tried start and search and no output.

Hi jjgitties,

Use Request::getUserDateVar instead of Request::getUserVar.
