Display Small Graphic if expired is less than today ?

Recommended Posts

I have a field [@field:Expiration_Date] . I would like to display a small 75 x 50 graphic "Expired" using JavaScript in an Html Block only if Today() is greater than the expiration date. This is a results page where rules are not available. I am pretty sure this can be done with an <img> tag, JavaScript and an Html Block. I just don't know the proper syntax.  Would appreciate any help ?  Thanks You !

Unsuccessfully Tried This:


expired = [@field:Employee_Doc_Date_Plus_Renew*].value;

if (expired < today)
 <img alt="" src="https://www.mysite.net/Expired_76x50.png" style="width: 76px; height: 50px;" /> ;

Took me a while to figure out. Here is what worked for me if anyone else needs it.

var now = new Date();
var expiration = new Date("[@field:Employee_Doc_Date_Plus_Renew*]");

if(now > expiration) // today is after expiration

  document.write("<IMG ALIGN='center' "+
                    "SRC='https://My URL/Expired_76x50.png'> "); 

You will need to replace My URL with the actual URL where your image resides as well as your actual @field references.
