adding values to the date fields
nclarke1 - 9/18/2002 at 04:29 PM


The calendar inputs a date into a text box called StartDate. If I now want to create a new javascript value called weekStartDate is it possible to easily add 7 days onto the value in StartDate. Any help would be much appreciated.

1. read date from StartDate field into string variable
2. convert string variable to date object with parsing function that comes with the calendar
3. add 7 days with:
dt_value.setDate(dt_value.getDate() + 7);
4. convert date object to string with generating function that comes with the calendar
5. put string variable in second calendar constructor
