I have a resource’s date-field which is optional (so in most records it has a null value) and in the form I render it with
date_select/3 (datetime_select/3 for options and supported values)
When I edit a record with a null date-field, date_select displays 2015/01/01 as default value for it.
This date value is then stored on update, along with the actual record’s field I was actually editing.
I tried using the option
default: nil in order to avoid the date-field to be updated too, with no success.
I’m bypassing this issue using a
text_input/3 field in place of date_select/3, but still wondering if I’m just missing the simple/obvious solution, which I presume is hidden in plain sight to my eyes.
Thank you for any suggestion and help.
