Date Field Validation

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for help with validating a date field on a submission form.  If the user enters a value less than the current date, an alert message appears and the form will not submit.  Please provide a javascript solution if you have used something like this in one of your applications.  Thanks, Chris.

You can try to add an HTML Block at the end of the list and have this code in:

function chk_date(){
if ( new Date(document.getElementById('InsertRecordDATEFIELDNAME').value) < new Date() )
 alert("Select a day after now !");
 document.getElementById('InsertRecordDATEFIELDNAME').value = null;
 return false;
else {document.getElementById('caspioform').submit();}


<input type="button" onclick="chk_date()" value="Submit">

You need to hide the default submit button in the style by adding display:none; to .cbSubmitButton


Make sure to replcae DATEFIELDNAME with the actual field name

I am trying to set a lower end limit on the date that can be selected. Below is the code I tried it has yet to work.


It is being run in conjunction with concatenate script.



function validateDate() {

var date = document.getElementById('InsertRecordDate').value;


if (Date.parse(del_date) < Date.parse("08/07/2015"))

{ alert("Please enter a date after 08/07/2015"); } }


document.getElementById('InsertRecordGuestOrders_Delivery_date').onChange = validateDate();



Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ychaudhry,


As far as I can understand, the incorrect variable is used in the condition:


var date = document.getElementById('InsertRecordDate').value;

if (Date.parse(del_date)


I would like to recommend you either change "var date" to "var del_date" or change "(Date.parse(del_date)" to "(Date.parse(date)".


I hope, it helps.
