I need help with refactoring a form. There's one issue left: I'd like to change a date input to dd.mm.yyyy format as the app is in German.
// $request->entry_date is '10.12.2017' (December 10th, 2017) $request->entry_date = Carbon::createFromFormat('d.m.Y', $request->entry_date); // In DDB after update: 2010-12-20 17:00:00 // Expected after update: 2017-12-10 (plus whatever time Carbon adds, I just care about the date) $client->update($request->all());
The 17:00 in the timestamp makes me suspect Carbon interprets the third and fourth digits of the year as hour, but I checked with the docs: Y is year (four digits), m is month (2 digits), d ist day (2 digits).
What's wrong with my code?
Did you know that, in addition to the forum, Laracasts includes well over 1000 lessons on modern web development? All for the price of one lunch out per month.
