Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8115) incorrect birthday saved to phonebook using Contacts Plugin
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2015 11:59:11 GMT

Github user vladimir-kotikov commented on the pull request:
    I think this is not possible to cover this issue with our automated tests, because, strictly
speaking, the plugin code stores and reads birthdays correctly - Android just requires that
the date should be stored as a string in [ISO format](
instead of timestamp.
    IMO the only way to test this, is to manually check, if birthday is displayed correctly
in device's phonebook.

> We are facing an issue while trying to add birthday to Contact while using Cordova for
android while adding a new contact to the phonebook
> following is part of the code
> contact = navigator.contacts.create({
> "displayName": displayname
> });
> // store contact name
> var contactName = new ContactName();
> contactName.familyName = lastname;
> contactName.givenName = firstname
> = contactName;
> contact.birthday = new Date("16 May 1984");
> // save the contact
> With above code, when data is viewed in android phone, the birthday is save as 29-12-6731
instead of expected 16-May-1984
> we have tried all possible combinations of date entry viz: 16-May-1984 ; 16/May/1984
; 16/5/1984 ; new date(1984,05,16)
> but all in vain the results are the same.
> also need to know how to save anniversary date
> when using this plugin for IOS, the date saved is 15-May-1984 (1 day less than expected).
