kleini78 created the topic: calendar field - date and time in future

I'm looking for a validation script to validate a calender field "mietbeginn". The value of the field (%d.%m.%Y %H:%M) must be in future.

Can you help me pls.

To check if date and time value in format %d.%m.%Y %H:%M is in future do as follows.

In Validation section of Calendar Date and Time element set Validation Type to Custom and in the code area below put the following code:
function ff_dattime_validation(element, message)

    var tim = element.value.split(" ")[1];
    if(tim.split(":").length != 2) {return message == '' ? "Please select time.n" : message}
    var dat = element.value.split(" ")[0];

    var vDate = new Date(Number( dat.split(".")[2]),Number(dat.split(".")[1]-1),Number(dat.split(".")[0]),Number(tim.split(":")[0]),Number( tim.split(":")[1]),0).getTime();
    var today = new Date();   
    if( vDate < today) {
          if (message=='') message = "Start time must be after current time.n";
          return message;
    return '';

} // ff_dattime_validation
NOTE: You have to replace every instance of "dattime" with the name of the calendar element in your form.

Let me know whether it works as you wanted.
