This is going to give problems. What if the date is 1st January or whatever? Users may not put in a leading zero.

I suggest much better to have separate input boxes for mm dd and yyyy, and concatenate and/or format the result afterwards.

Or try:-

if( !/^(\d{1,2})\/(\d{1,2})\/(\d{4})$/.test(obj.value) ) {
alert( "Invalid date supplied - must be format MM/DD/YYYY" );

You will still need to test if the values of mm dd and yyyy are valid.

Just found the following which is close to what you want:-


Hope this helps.
