All Day Events now 'broken' in v4.7.1399
Asked by steve65 14 years ago.
I'm not sure I agree with the change you've made to all-day events in v4.7.1399
I did have my all day events as date only and they worked fine, by definition an all-day event does not need a time element.
However in the new version I now find that all my 1 day events (24/04/08 00:00:00 to 24/04/08 00:00:00) do not display at all, and 2 day events (24/04/08 00:00:00 to 25/04/08 00:00:00) only display the first day.
How come now in a 2 day event 24/04/08 00:00:00 is treat as 24/04/08 but 25/04/08 00:00:00 is treat as the day before 24/04/08 23:59:59 ?
I will have to update all 00:00:00 ending times in my database to be 23:59:59, and change my code so that new all-day events have 23:59:59 appended to them
I'm also not sure why you would want to do this :-
' Forum 387 (bug): All-Day events ending at 24:00 were visible on the following day'
There is no such time as 24:00 and I would think that most datetime validations would not let you enter 24:00:00.
To me the real bug was that 00:00:00 single all-day events did not display in the month view and to get round that (forum 387) was adding the 23:59:59 time, which uncovered an additional bug/problem because it now displayed the time in the week view. Therefore the only functionality that needed fixing was the display in month view and the option to hide the time in week view.
sorry for the rant, but it looks like unneccessary work to me.
Still a very good control though.
