Response to: Editing date

You can look at the code the Rails uses to edit dates by actually generating the scaffold code (I don't cover this in the article).

Create a dummy table in your database (call it,say, "foobars"), and besides the id field, add a date field. Then run the command in the root directory of you cookbook:

ruby scripts/generate scaffold foobars

This will actually create the model, controller, and view templates, letting you see exactly how Rails implements it.
