Hey Jigal,

thanks for your answer. Next time i use the other group.
I already build some templates for edit, new and index. As you said
fluid/extbase build all values by using the object or in a form by using 

But my problem is that my values are empty. But just the "dateFrom" 
input value. Everything else works fine. The dateForm is a "datetime" 

Any Idea ? Thanks so far.
