I want to know how to write a javascript "to sort a set of date and time in the ascending order" that is i am having 5 to 6 date&time values from the external application in the format "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss" and i want to write a function to display them in the ascending order using jscript.
The dates are in a form.

Sounds like a homework asignment.
First you specifed descending, then ascending order. So which is it?

Have a look at the JavaScript sort() method.

var dates = [
"2002-05-11 05:12:43",
"1999-06-01 11:01:13",
"2003-02-24 10:10:33",
"2001-05-12 03:11:26"
]


var dates2=[];
for(var i=0, mx = dates.length; i<mx;i++){
var p = dates[i].split(/\D+/g);
dates2[i]= new Date(p[0],p[1],p[2],p[3],p[4],p[5]);
}


//ascending:
alert(dates2.sort(function(a,b){return a-b}).join("\n"))

//descending:
alert(dates2.sort(function(a,b){return b-a}).join("\n"))
