Use the First and Last Day of the Month in Search Forms

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, this is not a question but I just want to share a solution that I made using js.

I was needing a way to on load get the first and last day of the current month and use that as my initial search values in a tabular report but I am struggling to find a way without using js.

Here is the script that I came up with:
<script type="text/javascript">
document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {
var date = new Date(), y = date.getFullYear(), m = date.getMonth();
var firstDay = new Date(y, m, 1);
var lastDay = new Date(y, m + 1, 0);

var criteria1 = document.getElementById("Value1_1").value = firstDay.toLocaleDateString("en-US");
var criteria2 = document.getElementById("Value1_2").value = lastDay.toLocaleDateString("en-US");

I got this from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13571700/get-first-and-last-date-of-current-month-with-javascript-or-jquery and simply use toLocaleDateString to format the values to dd/MM/yyyy instead of the long date used by default.

Just don't forget to inspect the input fields first in the preview to check what is the field's ID then simply change the colored values.
