Hello themonitor,
 
Welcome to forum!
 
On your Submission Form, you can add a Header & Footer element. Then you can select the Footer element, click the "Source" button and enter the following code:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function check_date()
{
var entered_value = document.getElementById("InsertRecordFIELDNAME").value;
var entered_date = new Date(entered_value);

var tomorrow = new Date();
tomorrow.setDate(tomorrow.getDate() + 1);

if(entered_date < tomorrow)
   {
      alert("Please select a date after tomorrow");
      return false;
   }
}

document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=check_date;
</SCRIPT>

Please enter name of your field instead of "FIELDNAME" in the line

var entered_value = document.getElementById("InsertRecordFIELDNAME").value;
 
Also you can enter your message instead of "Please select a date after tomorrow".
 
I hope, it helps.

i tried copying the var statements 2 more times and changing the field name to start_date2 and then start_date3

and then adding an else if and else statement, but the pop-up kept on going, as if it was ignoring the other rule.

 

then i tried doing this:

 

var entered_value = document.getElementById("InsertRecordstart_date","InsertRecordstart_date2","InsertRecordstart_date3").value;

 

 

BUT that didn't seem to work at all just ignored start_date2 and start_date3 all together as if the code wasn't in there.

I"m new to javascript.. watched some videos online and thought it would work.

Hello themonitor,

 

I think, you can use the following code:

 

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function check_date()
{
var entered_value = document.getElementById("InsertRecordfirst").value;
var entered_date = new Date(entered_value);
var tomorrow = new Date();
tomorrow.setDate(tomorrow.getDate() + 1);

if(entered_date < tomorrow)
   {
      alert("Please select a date after tomorrow");
      return false;
   }

var entered_value2 = document.getElementById("InsertRecordsecond").value;
if (entered_value2 !="")
{
var entered_date2 = new Date(entered_value2);
if(entered_date2 < tomorrow)
   {
      alert("Please select a date2 after tomorrow");
      return false;
   }
}

var entered_value3 = document.getElementById("InsertRecordthird").value;
if (entered_value3 !="")
{
var entered_date3 = new Date(entered_value3);
if(entered_date3 < tomorrow)
   {
      alert("Please select a date3 after tomorrow");
      return false;
   }
}
}

document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=check_date;
</SCRIPT>

Please insert your fieldnames instead of first, second, third.

 

I hope, it helps.
