Topic: Add 7 days to a date, 1 Attachments

I made an error in naming the function, it should be "AdvDays".

I see we can rewrite the document level script to include the week being processed and them programmatically advance the date.

If we put the following code in the "Date" JavaScript function:

function AdvDays(cDate,cDays)
oDate = util.scand('mm/dd/yyyy',cDate);
/* advDate contains the numeric representation of the current date. */
var advDate = oDate.valueOf();
/* Add cDays days to advDate, in milliseconds. */
/* 1000 ms/sec, 60 sec/min, 60 min/hour, 24 hours/day, cDate days */
advDate += 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * cDays;
/* Create our new date, cDays days ahead of the cDate. */
var d2 = new Date(advDate);
/* return formatted date to calling location */
return util.printd('mm/dd/yyyy', d2);

function ComputeDate()
if (this.getField('Date.0').value == '') event.value = ''; // clear field
else {
//Get date to calculate next week start date
var aLevels ='.'); // get event target's name as array
var Week = aLevels[aLevels.length-1]; // get last level event name or week
event.value = AdvDays(this.getField('Date.0').value, 7*Week); // compute date

We can code each field's calculation script to read:


Make sure you do not have any special format or validation scripts on the date fields.
