jhipster – change ngb-datepicker date format

Screenshot from 2018-01-11 16-16-39

When you generate an entity with jhipster entity and add a LocalDate the UI generated uses ng-bootstrap Datepicker. To change the format you need to add an implementation of the class NgbDateParserFormatter. To change the language you need to provide an implementation of the class NgbDatepickerI18n (as shown in the examples).

First create the class files, i.e.

/webapp/src/main/webapp/app/blocks/config/ng-bootstrap.date-parser-formatter.ts

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { NgbDateParserFormatter, NgbDateStruct } from '@ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap';

function padNumber(value: number) {
    if (isNumber(value)) {
        return `0${value}`.slice(-2);
    } else {
        return "";
    }
}

function isNumber(value: any): boolean {
    return !isNaN(toInteger(value));
}

function toInteger(value: any): number {
    return parseInt(`${value}`, 10);
}


@Injectable()
export class NgbDateParserFormatterEsMX extends NgbDateParserFormatter {
    parse(value: string): NgbDateStruct {
        if (value) {
            const dateParts = value.trim().split('/');
            if (dateParts.length === 1 && isNumber(dateParts[0])) {
                return {year: toInteger(dateParts[0]), month: null, day: null};
            } else if (dateParts.length === 2 && isNumber(dateParts[0]) && isNumber(dateParts[1])) {
                return {year: toInteger(dateParts[1]), month: toInteger(dateParts[0]), day: null};
            } else if (dateParts.length === 3 && isNumber(dateParts[0]) && isNumber(dateParts[1]) && isNumber(dateParts[2])) {
                return {year: toInteger(dateParts[2]), month: toInteger(dateParts[1]), day: toInteger(dateParts[0])};
            }
        }
        return null;
    }

    format(date: NgbDateStruct): string {
        let stringDate: string = "";
        if(date) {
            stringDate += isNumber(date.day) ? padNumber(date.day) + "/" : "";
            stringDate += isNumber(date.month) ? padNumber(date.month) + "/" : "";
            stringDate += date.year;
        }
        return stringDate;
    }
}

<project>/direccion-juridica/webapp/src/main/webapp/app/blocks/config/ng-bootstrap-datepicker-i18n.ts

import {Component, Injectable} from '@angular/core';
import {NgbDatepickerI18n} from '@ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap';

const I18N_VALUES = {
    'es-MX': {
        weekdays: ['Lun', 'Mar', 'Mie', 'Jue', 'Vie', 'Sab', 'Dom'],
        months: ['Ene', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Abr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul', 'Ago', 'Sep', 'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dic'],
    }
    // other languages you would support
};

// Define a service holding the language. You probably already have one if your app is i18ned. Or you could also
// use the Angular LOCALE_ID value
@Injectable()
export class I18n {
    language = 'es-MX';
}

// Define custom service providing the months and weekdays translations
@Injectable()
export class CustomDatepickerI18n extends NgbDatepickerI18n {

    constructor(private _i18n:I18n) {
        super();
    }

    getWeekdayShortName(weekday:number):string {
        return I18N_VALUES[this._i18n.language].weekdays[weekday - 1];
    }

    getMonthShortName(month:number):string {
        return I18N_VALUES[this._i18n.language].months[month - 1];
    }

    getMonthFullName(month:number):string {
        return this.getMonthShortName(month);
    }
}

finally define the provider in <project>/direccion-juridica/webapp/src/main/webapp/app/app.module.ts

import ...

...
    providers: [
        ProfileService,
        customHttpProvider(),
        PaginationConfig,
        UserRouteAccessService,
        I18n,
        {provide: NgbDatepickerI18n, useClass: CustomDatepickerI18n},
        {provide: NgbDateParserFormatter, useClass: NgbDateParserFormatterEsMX}
    ],
    bootstrap: [ JhiMainComponent ]
})
...

to change the displayed format of dates in tables you can replace in files date:'mediumDate' with date:'dd/MM/yyyy' and date:'medium' with date:'dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm' for example.

for ZonedDateTime it uses a datetime-local input which tries to use browser configuration -if supported-
Due to, and I’m quoting this from Mozilla

Date/time inputs sound convenient at first glance; they provide an easy UI 
for choosing dates and times, and they normalize the data format sent to the 
server, regardless of the user's locale. However, there are issues with 
 because of the **limited browser support.**

So I would recommend breaking DateTimes into a Datepicker and a Timepicker from ng-bootstrap and configuring as above.

angular – prevent default submit on click of a button

I had a form with ngSubmit

<form name="editForm" role="form" novalidate (ngSubmit)="save()" #editForm="ngForm">

and inside this form I have 3 buttons like so

<div class="btn-group flex-btn-group-container">

            <span class="fa fa-eye"></span>
            <span class="hidden-md-down">Descargar</span>


            <span class="fa fa-pencil"></span>
            <span class="hidden-md-down">Edit</span>


            <span class="fa fa-remove"></span>
            <span class="hidden-md-down">Delete</span>

</div>

two are of type submit and one has a click handler.

Whenever I clicked the first button (click handler), it was submitting the form. To prevent this you should add the $event parameter

<button (click) = "descargarAdjunto(adjunto, $event)" class="btn btn-info btn-sm">
    <span class="fa fa-eye"></span>
    <span class="hidden-md-down">Descargar</span>
</button>

and call the prevent default

private descargarAdjunto(adjunto, $event){
        $event.preventDefault()
        ...
}

angular – debugging an app

Peek 2017-11-24 15-39.gif

There’s an excellent article on ionic blog which talks about how to debug an app. It become really handy now that JS Batarang extension stopped working on my google chrome 😥 (Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS; Chrome Version 62.0.3202.62 (Official Build) (64-bit)).

You just have to identify an element on your page which is associated with an scope and you would see all the variables on that scope through the use of a simple console.log call.

angular.element(targetNode).scope()

angular – replace character on displayed values of select list array without filter directive

I have an enum in one of our entities like so

private enum ConduccionAlProceso {
        POR_COMPARECENCIA, POR_CITACION, CON_CONTROL_DE_DETENCION, EN_CUMPLIMIENTO_DE_ORDEN_DE_APREHENSION
    }

I wanted to display the values on client side without underscores. There are a lot of articles showing how to do so by using a filter directive like

App.filter('underscoreless', function () {
  return function (input) {
      return input.replace(/_/g, ' ');
  };
});

and then in html

{{ addText | underscoreless }}

but I didn’t want to create a directive for this since i’m only using it once.

So, I ended up adding a function in the controller

$scope.mediosConduccionAlProceso = [
    'POR_COMPARECENCIA', 'POR_CITACION', 'CON_CONTROL_DE_DETENCION', 'EN_CUMPLIMIENTO_DE_ORDEN_DE_APREHENSION'
]
$scope.replaceUnderscores = function(item){
    return item.replace(new RegExp('_','g'), ' ');
}

and calling it in the html like

    <select class="form-control"
            ng-model="carpeta.conduccionAlProceso"
            ng-options="medio as replaceUnderscores(medio) for medio in mediosConduccionAlProceso 
                        | orderBy: 'toString()'"
            required>
        <option value=""></option>
    </select>

fuelux – use a select list inside a placard

Peek 2017-11-23 08-51

Fuel UX extends Bootstrap with additional lightweight JavaScript controls for your web applications. It has a placard control, which adds a pop-up element to edit inputs/textareas inline on focus with additional options for explicit accept/cancel actions.

I was trying to display a select list -in angular- when the placard is shown. I achieved it with the following code. I had to put the select list inside the placard-popup div and give it a margin so it didn’t overlap with the header. I don’t know if that’s what has been addressed since version 3.11.4 and that’s the purpose of the placard-popup div, it doesn’t say in the docs or at least i couldn’t found it.

<div id="tipoAudiencia" class="placard">
    <div class="placard-popup">
        <div class="form-group" style="margin-top:30px;">



        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="placard-header">Selecciona el tipo de audiencia</div>
    <div class="form-control placard-field glass">{{audiencia.tipoAudiencia.nombre}}</div>
    <div class="placard-footer">
        <a class="placard-cancel" href="#">Cancelar</a>
        Aceptar
    </div>
</div>

then in my controller I update the value if it gets accepted

$('#tipoAudiencia').on('accepted.fu.placard', function(){
    console.log('actualizando el tipo de audiencia a ' + $scope.tipoAudienciaEditada);
    $scope.audiencia.tipoAudiencia = $scope.tipoAudienciaEditada;
    Audiencia.update($scope.audiencia);
});

I had some minor issues with sizing but they’re not showstoppers

js – bootstrap datetimepicker in modal window

I’ve had a lot of troubles to display a datetimepicker inside a bootstrap modal window. I’ve tried several ways to display the datetimepicker but none of them worked (delegate, z-index, etc.)

The problem I think, is we tried to initialize the datetimepicker before it gets added to the DOM, because of the animation on the modal window.
I tried also to initialize the datetimepicker on the ‘opened’ event of the modal window like so

<div class="row">
            <div class="'col-sm-3'">
                <div class="form-group">
                    <div class="'input-group" id="'datetimepicker'">

                        <span class="input-group-addon">
                            <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-time"></span>
                        </span>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
var modal = $modal.open({
      templateUrl: ...,
      controller: ...
});
modal.result.then(function (result) {
     $state.go('avisos', null, {reload: true});
}, function () {
    $state.go('^');
 });

modal.opened.then(function(){
     console.log('modal opened');
     $('#datetimepicker').datetimepicker({ format: 'DD/MM/YYYY'});
});

the event gets fired before the datetimepicker is in place and therefore not initialized correctly. So, the solution for me was to initialize the datetimepicker in a timeout function inside my angular controller

setTimeout(function () {
     $('#datetimepicker').datetimepicker({
         format: 'DD/MM/YYYY'
     });
}, 1000);

AngularJS – FuelUX checkbox bootstrap conflict

EDIT: wordpress removed html sample code and I don’t know how to fix it, in the meantime here’s a link to the source of the article.

I was trying to use a simple checkbox on a form, so I just copied the sample from bootstrap. But I forgot that I was using FuelUX on that form, so it never showed the checkbox. Apparently, there’s a problem mixing checkbox controls -at least in this case-.

So, my form was like this

<form name="editForm" role="form" novalidate>
    <div class="fuelux">
        ...
            <div class="modal-body">
            <div class="wizard" id="myWizard">
            ...

I’m using a wizard control inside a modal dialog. Well, it didn’t show up but the label. So instead, of using the bootstrap checkbox sample code I opted for using the FuelUX checkbox.

<div class="checkbox" id="myCheckbox">


    <span class="checkbox-label">Custom checkbox unchecked on page load</span>

</div>

now the checkbox was displaying just fine. It’s time to bind that the model, so I just added an ng-model attribute like so

<div class="checkbox" id="myCheckbox">


    <span class="checkbox-label">Custom checkbox unchecked on page load</span>

</div>

and it worked great, but only one way. I mean, when you tick the checkbox it updates the model, but if you update the model -anyhow- it won’t change it’s displayed value (won’t check or uncheck). So, you have to update the checkbox state by adding a ng-class attribute, which will add or remove a ‘checked’ class according to the model.

Finally, we have this working like a charm

<div class="checkbox" id="myCheckbox">


    <span class="checkbox-label">Privada</span>

</div>
