Displaying A Date With Another Format?

Sep 6, 2011

Alright so I've been searching around trying to figure out how to change the date format, the way I have seen it the most is like

var d=new Date();
var datestring=d.getdate + d.getMonth + d.get Year

I am new to javascript and this is the first script I have written on my own so this is what it does. It is supposed to display the date that a shipment should arrive on with 2 day shipping through ups so it skips weekends. It displays the date after either adding 2 days or more depending on the day of the week. But the way the date is formatted really needs to be changed.

<script type="text/javascript">
var d=new Date();
var day=d.getDay();
if (day <= 3){

Displaying Date In Text Box

Jun 19, 2007

I want to display the date 19/06/2007 in this format.I want to validate the number entered in the textbox i.e for first digit of date it should not accept more than 3 (accept only 0,1,2,3). When the text length reaches 3 & 5 ie after date & month, by default this function should return slash ( / ) - this is to avoid typing / from keyboard.
I don't have any idea to do this.

I have added the function below, which I will be calling onkeypress event.

function valNumber(value)

var x=value.length;
if(x==0 && (event.keyCode==48||event.keyCode==49||event.keyCode==50||event.keyCode==51))

else if(x==1 && (event.keyCode>47 && event.keyCode<58))

else if(x==2)
value = '/'

Displaying A Bold Text With A JavaScript

Nov 23, 2005

In HTML I use <b>...</b> to make parts of a text bold.
<h1 class = "Style-MyText">This text is normal. <b>This text is

Now I'd like to do the same with a JavaScript.
I tried
HTML: <h1 id = "MyID1" class = "Style-MyText">.</h1>
javascript: document.getElementById("MyID1").firstChild.replaceData(0,
document.getElementById("MyID1").firstChild.nodeValue.length, "This text is
normal. <b>This text is bold.</b>");

Unfortunately <b>...</b> is displayed as '<b>' and '</b>' and not
interpreted to make the text bold.
'View Selection Source' shows: This text is normal. &lt;/b&gt;This text is

Is there a way to make some parts of a text bold with a JavaScript?

Displaying Javascript Variable In Text Box.

Feb 1, 2007

I'm creating a simple memory game in which the user has to make pairs

I can do this by showing a msgbox every time try increments but this
is annoying to use. I have been trying for hours to get this to work,

Displaying Javascript Alerts In Multiple Languages

Sep 12, 2006

I have a Java-based web application whose interface can be in multiple
languages. My requirement is that the javascript alerts that I display
should be displayed in the language in which the interface has been
generated. The interface language is dynamically loaded and the text is
displayed using Java's <fmttags.

How can I make the Javascript alerts, etc. also change their display
language dynamically? Is it possible in Javascript or do I have to use
another technology to do the same?

JavaScript Date Validation

Feb 8, 2003

Recently while messing with dates, I noticed an odd quirk in javascript with new Date(), i.e. if someone enters an invalid date, such as 2/29/2003, javascript creates the new date as 3/1/2003.

Having a look around, I couldn't find any scripts that took advantage of this for the sake of date validation... probably someone here has done this before, but I'll post it anyway.

The idea is that if javascript creates a new Date() with a different month, then obviously the date entered is not valid. Most of the scripts I saw used some math to divide by leap year, yadda yadda yadda, but with this feature (?) of javascript, it seems unnecessary.

Right now this code only validates mm/dd/yyyy, but it should be easy to modify to support other formats:

function isDate(sDate) {
var re = /^d{1,2}/d{1,2}/d{4}$/
if (re.test(sDate)) {
var dArr = sDate.split("/");
var d = new Date(sDate);
return d.getMonth() + 1 == dArr[0] && d.getDate() == dArr[1] && d.getFullYear() == dArr[2];
else {
return false;

Here's a shorter version that works if you pass in the values separately:

function isDate(mm,dd,yyyy) {
var d = new Date(mm + "/" + dd + "/" + yyyy);
return d.getMonth() + 1 == mm && d.getDate() == dd && d.getFullYear() == yyyy;

Problem With Javascript Date()

Nov 15, 2005

I have written a javascript to compare current date with the date that user has entered in the form. the user enters in YYYY-MM-DD format. here'z the code:

var today= new Date();
var stDate= new Date(document.form[0].startDate.value);
var day=0; var month=0; var year=0;
var todayStr;
day= today.getDate();
month= today.getMonth()+1;
year= today.getFullYear();
todayStr= new Date(year + "-" + month + "-" + day);
{ alert("Current date is greater");}

but todayStr gives NaN . and comparison gives no result.

Javascript Date Subtractor

Jun 7, 2006

I have a date function that subtract a certain amount of days from todays date.

function printDate(offset)

var offsetAmount= offset
var currentTime= new Date()
var month= currentTime.getMonth() + 1
var day= currentTime.getDate()
var nDay= day - offsetAmount
var year= currentTime.getFullYear()

document.write(nDay + "/" + month + "/" + year)

I need it to be able to recognise when it goes into a previous month (ie instead of 0/6/2006 it will go to 31/5/2006)

JavaScript Date Validator.

Jun 14, 2007

Is there any function in JavaScript which validates the date format like isNaN() for numbers? Or have anyone made such function which validates the date entered in the text box i.e. dd-mm-yyyy or yyyy-mm-dd or mm-dd-yyyy or dd/mm/yyy or mm/dd/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd are only the valid dates??

Javascript Equivalent For Vbscript Date()-1

Mar 28, 2007

I'm looking to return DATE ONLY for yesterday's date. No seconds,
milliseconds. Formatted either yyyy/mm/dd or mm/dd/yyyy. VB does it so
easily Date()-1 will return 03/27/2007 if today is 03/28/2007. Why so
many hoops for javascript? Any ideas?

How Do I Format The Last-Modified Date With Javascript?

May 7, 2007

Apparently, ` new Date() ` reads it correctly, though problems
can occur if the browser returns only two digits for the year.
In particular, time zone, field order and separators may vary.
It is also reliant on the server's clock having been correctly
set at the time of upload. See the URL below.

Javascript To Display Current Date (and Back Dates)

Jul 23, 2005

I've browsed through past usenet archives, but can't seem to come across quite the javascript I'm looking for. I'm looking for a simple javascript that will display the date as such:

May 17

So basically, just displaying the current month and the current date. But I would also like the ability to backdate by one day, two days, etc.. So the next date might look as such:

May 15

Which would be two days earlier than today's date, but in keeping with the same format.

JavaScript Date Difference, Accounting For Leap Years

Jun 19, 2006

I'm really sorry to post this as I know it must have been asked
countless times before, but I can't find an answer anywhere.

Does anyone have a snippet of JavaScript code I could borrow which
calculated the difference in years and days between two dates, and
takes leap years into account?

I'm calculating the difference in the usual way, i.e....

var difference = dateTo.getTime() - dateFrom.getTime();

....and converting this millisecond value into days by using...

var daysDifference = (difference/1000/60/60/24);

But how do I then display the difference in days AND years? I've tried
the following:

var yearsDifference = Math.floor(daysDifference/365.25);
var daysLeft = Math.floor(daysDifference-(yearsDifference*365.25));

....but it gives me inaccuracies. For example, if I use my code to
calculate the difference between 05/01/1998 and 05/01/2000 it returns 1
year and 364 days!

IE :: Date Loading On A Booking Form - Date Does Not Load On Internet Explorer?

Feb 14, 2011

I have added a booking form to a website with belongs to fastbooking.You can see a temporary website here. http:[url]....It works perfectly fine in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera and Safari but it does not load on Internet Explorer.On the other browsers the form loads todays date and the year is generated but on IE the date stays on 01-01 and no year is generated.I'm using wordpress as a cms.I think the code that is not loading is <body onLoad='start();'>But I'm not sure. The code of the year is

<select name='fromyear' class="input" onChange='update_departure();'>
<option value="0"></option>
</select> But since it's no just the year I assume its the onload code.

I tried to add the onload to the header function like this

<body onLoad='start();' <?php if(function_exists('body_class')) body_class(); ?>>

So now wordpress generates the following code when it loads the page

<body onLoad='start();' class="home page page-id-6 page-template page-template-default logged-in">

But sadly the date still does no load on Internet Explorer.
