Date Format Validation in Javascript

Hi Guys,

Sometimes we want to validate the date which user has entered in text box, with some date formats. This things can be easily done in JavaScript. So here is the script which we can add in our JavaScript utility file for validating data format.



function isDate(dtStr){
var daysInMonth = DaysArray(12)
var pos1=dtStr.indexOf(dtCh)
var pos2=dtStr.indexOf(dtCh,pos1+1)
var strMonth=dtStr.substring(0,pos1)
var strDay=dtStr.substring(pos1+1,pos2)
var strYear=dtStr.substring(pos2+1)
strYr=strYear
if (strDay.charAt(0)=="0" && strDay.length>1) strDay=strDay.substring(1)
if (strMonth.charAt(0)=="0" && strMonth.length>1) strMonth=strMonth.substring(1)
for (var i = 1; i <= 3; i++) {
if (strYr.charAt(0)=="0" && strYr.length>1) strYr=strYr.substring(1)
}
month=parseInt(strMonth)
day=parseInt(strDay)
year=parseInt(strYr)
if (pos1==-1 || pos2==-1){
alert("The date format should be : mm/dd/yyyy")
return false
}
if (strMonth.length<1 || month<1 || month>12){
alert("Please enter a valid month")
return false
}
if (strDay.length<1 || day<1 || day>31 || (month==2 && day>daysInFebruary(year)) || day > daysInMonth[month]){
alert("Please enter a valid day")
return false
}
if (strYear.length != 4 || year==0 || yearmaxYear){
alert("Please enter a valid 4 digit year between "+minYear+" and "+maxYear)
return false
}
if (dtStr.indexOf(dtCh,pos2+1)!=-1 || isInteger(stripCharsInBag(dtStr, dtCh))==false){
alert("Please enter a valid date")
return false
}
return true
}
