[Fixed]-Whats the correct format for django dateTime?


As said by the error msg, it expects YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM[:ss[.uuuuuu]][TZ], thus following are valid values:

2012-09-04 06:00
2012-09-04 06:00:00
2012-09-04 06:00:00.000000

# w/ optional TZ as timezone. 
2012-09-04 06:00Z # utc
2012-09-04 06:00:00+0800
2012-09-04 06:00:00.000000-08:00


After talking around, what I figured out is that there is no AM/PM input. I had to just check if my dateTimePicker was returning an AM or PM suffix, then call time.split(“:”); to break up hours and minutes, convert the hours to int from a string, then add 12 to it to convert the time to 24 hour time instead of 12 hour time. Theirs probably an easier way to do it, but thats what worked for me.

For example:

2012-09-04 06:00 PM

Needs to be

2012-09-04 18:00


I used this'2012-09-04 06:00:00.000000-08:00' and it worked perfectly
