Simple javascript date select


 / Published in: JavaScript
 

URL: http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/curdateform2.shtml

This script displays the current date inside a form via 3 prefilled drop down menus (day, month, year). The visitor can then specify a different date if he/she wants. You can have multiple drop down dates within the same form as well.

  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  2.  
  3. /***********************************************
  4. * Drop Down Date select script- by JavaScriptKit.com
  5. * This notice MUST stay intact for use

  9. var monthtext=['Jan','Feb','Mar','Apr','May','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sept','Oct','Nov','Dec'];
  10.  
  11. function populatedropdown(dayfield, monthfield, yearfield){
  12. var today=new Date()
  13. var dayfield=document.getElementById(dayfield)
  14. var monthfield=document.getElementById(monthfield)
  15. var yearfield=document.getElementById(yearfield)
  16. for (var i=0; i<31; i++)
  17. dayfield.options[i]=new Option(i, i+1)
  18. dayfield.options[today.getDate()]=new Option(today.getDate(), today.getDate(), true, true) //select today's day
  19. for (var m=0; m<12; m++)
  20. monthfield.options[m]=new Option(monthtext[m], monthtext[m])
  21. monthfield.options[today.getMonth()]=new Option(monthtext[today.getMonth()], monthtext[today.getMonth()], true, true) //select today's month
  22. var thisyear=today.getFullYear()
  23. for (var y=0; y<20; y++){
  24. yearfield.options[y]=new Option(thisyear, thisyear)
  25. thisyear+=1
  26. }
  27. yearfield.options[0]=new Option(today.getFullYear(), today.getFullYear(), true, true) //select today's year
