DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime
Auto-create DateTime objects from date and datetime columns.

DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime - Auto-create DateTime objects from date and datetime columns.


NAME

DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime - Auto-create DateTime objects from date and datetime columns.


SYNOPSIS

Load this component and then declare one or more columns to be of the datetime, timestamp or date datatype.


  package Event;

  __PACKAGE__->load_components(qw/InflateColumn::DateTime Core/);

  __PACKAGE__->add_columns(

    starts_when => { data_type => 'datetime' }

  );

Then you can treat the specified column as a DateTime object.


  print "This event starts the month of ".

    $event->starts_when->month_name();

If you want to set a specific timezone for that field, use:


  __PACKAGE__->add_columns(

    starts_when => { data_type => 'datetime', extra => { timezone => "America/Chicago" } }

  );


DESCRIPTION

This module figures out the type of DateTime::Format::* class to inflate/deflate with based on the type of DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::* that you are using. If you switch from one database to a different one your code should continue to work without modification (though note that this feature is new as of 0.07, so it may not be perfect yet - bug reports to the list very much welcome).

For more help with using components, see USING in the DBIx::Class::Manual::Component manpage.

register_column

Chains with the register_column in the DBIx::Class::Row manpage method, and sets up datetime columns appropriately. This would not normally be directly called by end users.


SEE ALSO

More information about the add_columns method, and column metadata, can be found in the documentation for the DBIx::Class::ResultSource manpage.
