View Full Version : setDate(???) expected parameters
04-08-2003, 07:00 PM
Hi trying to setDate() but have not a clue of the expected parameters ...
I saw somewhere (where yyyy,dd,mm are integers)
d = new Date();
but that always gives an incorrect answer , other variations give NaN .. anyone know what the correct format is ? - or a decent date object reference (I only have MS Jscript reference which is useless)

It takes an integer value from 1-31

doh , cheers Spookster , why I am looking at MS jscript docs I dont know~
errr still up the spout though , I am trying to add 10 days to a given date from form input...
d= new Date(parseInt(year), parseInt(month), parseInt(day));
var md=d.valueOf() + 86400000 *10;//milliseconds ..should be 10 days ?//
var newdate=new Date(md);
it does incrememnt the date by 10 days (mostly)... but also adds one to the month and does weird things at the end of the month ? anyone got a better way for me ?

to add 10 days to d
d.setDate(d.getDate() + 10);

cheers - that works a treat ... still have to -1 from the getMonth() value ? but I can live with that (and its probably something I broke elsewhere anyway ?)

By default the Date object returns a zero-based value.
Hey firepages, being the PHP person you are, you might appreciate my Date class for JS
