Forms >>> Validation Date.
 
Script Categories













Forms >>> Validation Date.

Dates are validated and formatted in your form. Supports over a dozen different date formats, and formats the date properly in United States or European date formatting styles depending on how the script is configured. A dateCheck function also is included if you wish to compare two dates.

From date 
To date   


The following date formats are accepted:
mm-dd-yyyy, mm/dd/yyyy, mm.dd.yyyy, mm dd yyyy,
mmm dd yyyy, mmddyyyy, m-d-yyyy, m/d/yyyy, m.d.yyyy,
m d yyyy, mmm d yyyy, m-d-yy, m/d/yy, m.d.yy, m d yy,
mmm d yy (yy is 20yy)


(Accepted EU formats just switch month and day)
