877-GRID-666 24/7 online support 324 10TH ST STE 203 OAKLAND CA 94607, USA


* Currently only supported in the Enterprise edition 

The function is almost identical to set_col_date() except it also has a time picker.

  • Parameters:
    • $col_name: column name
    • $srcformat: source date format, eg. “Y-m-d”
    • $newformat: new date form to be displayed, eg. “m/d/Y”
    • $datepicker_format: datepicker format, eg. “m/d/yy”
  • Description:
    •  Helper function to format the date using PHP date format options (http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php). MySql always stores the date in either ‘YYYY-MM-DD’ or ‘YY-MM-DD’ format. However, we can still change the front-end date display format while conforming to its date standards.
  • Remark:
    • In most cases, you don’t need to call this method because phpGrid automatically formats the data with corresponding data type including the date.
    • Only use this method in order to display date format that is different from default date format.
    • To display time only, please use set_col_property instead.
  • Example:
// Display datetimepicker. Used when data is DATETIME type.
$dg -> set_col_datetime("myDateTime");
