View Full Version : Hide Submit on Date Select in Past

06-23-2012, 08:05 PM
Hey guys I need some assistance in developing a code that will hide the submit button of a form if a date in the past is selected. The variable for the date box is firstleveldate and the date appears in a MM-DD-YYYY format.

Load the form with the submit button disabled, then place an onBlur event in the firstleveldate field that checks the date value. If it's before the current date, do nothing; if it's AFTER the current date (or is the current date?), then document.forms["formName"].submitButtonName.disabled = false;

you can use this:
function TestDate(Input, CurDateValid){
var seg=Input.split('-');
var Dato=new Date(seg[2],seg[0]-1,seg[1]);
var Now=new Date();
var NowReset=new Date(Now.getFullYear(),Now.getMonth(),Now.getDate());
return ((CurDateValid?NowReset:Now)<=Dato);
to test if the date is valid.

If today is a valid date then

if (TestDate(firstleveldate,1)){
--show/enable button--
--hide/disable button--

if not:
if (TestDate(firstleveldate,0)){ // or: if (TestDate(firstleveldate)){
--show/enable button--
--hide/disable button--
