How can I create a date-type custom field

Hello!

I want to create a calculated date type custom field, and I need it to be placed under the "Dates" section on the view issue screen. (same section where the created, updated and resolved dates are).

I have successfuly created the new custom field type, however it is placed on the Details section...

Cheers!

This widget could not be displayed.

Make sure your custom field implement DateField interface.

Great tip Jobin!

The value is not formatted though.

It is displaying

2012-12-19 14:19:57.492

Instead of

Today 2:19 PM

Do you know how to fix this?

Cheers!

I think it is how you display in the view template. The default date fields uses:

$datePickerFormatter.format($value)

this datePickerFormatter object should be provided by me from my Custom Field class?

when I use the view-datetime.vm the value no longer appears on the screen, and I get $datePickerFormatter.format($value) is not a valid reference. on my log.

Yes, you will need to add DateTimeFormatter in the context.

Thanks again Jobin!

I've added the DateTimeFormatter in the map, together with a SimpleDateFormatter under the "titleFormatter" key and "iso8601Formatter", and my screen worked as expected.

SimpleDateFormat formatoSimples = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MMM/yy h:mm a");
		
		map.put("datePickerFormatter", dateTimeFormatter);
		map.put("iso8601Formatter", dateTimeFormatter);
		map.put("titleFormatter", formatoSimples);
