What's the error? and post whatever code you've got so far, and how you called it.

Maybe you have tried this but to use javscript specific characters you need to escape it with a backslash:
Therefore in you're case you would use the following:
alert("Please enter valid date with DD\/MM\/YYYY. ");
Hope this helps,

There is no need to escape the / as a literal in an alert box.
alert ('That is not a valid date.\nPlease re-enter [MM/YY]. ');
Here the \n is escaped to make it a newline charcter, not a literal letter n, but you want a literal / (slash). I do not see why your original post does not work.
