Default How to calculate a number of days between 2 date

Dear all,

I have the following script:

var Day1 = dateObj1.value.substring( 0, 2 );
var Month1 = dateObj1.value.substring( 3, 5 );
var Year1 = dateObj1.value.substring( 6, 10 );
var Dt1 = Year1 + Month1 + Day1;

var Day2 = dateObj2.value.substring( 0, 2 );
var Month2 = dateObj2.value.substring( 3, 5 );
var Year2 = dateObj2.value.substring( 6, 10 );
var Dt2 = Year2 + Month2 + Day2;

if( Dt1 > Dt2 || Dt1 == "" || Dt2 == "")

return true;


For example, if Dt1 value is 20050601 and Dt2 value is 20050523, how can i get the number of days?. besides that, i also want to check the condition if Dt1 value <=Dt2 + 60 prompt messgae"ok" otherwise prompt message "<= 60days of PPC date"

Any helps is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...

Your script can be highly simplified to just:

if (dateObj1.after(dateObj2)) return true;

To calculate the number of days between the two objects, you can do date math on the Date.getTime() return value:

int days = (dateObj1.getTime() - dateObj2.getTime()) / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24);

If dateObj1 is not necessarily after dateObj2, you may want to use Math.abs(int) to always get a positive number.
